I need help and I'm hiring

Because of growing scheduling demands, I am looking for a part-time personal assistant to help with administrative tasks as a contractor (via an obrt). The schedule is largely flexible but I expect 5 to 10 hours per week. It's important to me that you have similar values:

  • Speak the truth even if it’s painful.
  • Maintain balance: life and work; wants and needs.
  • Consider your impact, since everything is connected.
  • Relax and breathe.

A modern work environment

My philosophy for the way of working is driven by psychological safety, trust, autonomy, and flexibility. What this means is that you will be given a lot of leeway and freedom to complete tasks, largely on your own schedule and remotely. You can read more about my management style via my colleague.readme or my blog on Medium.

You can expect to have regular 1-1 meetings to ensure that you have feedback about the work you are doing. You'll also have a very competitive wage and a flexible work schedule.

Here's what you'd be doing.

I envision you working on the following tasks, which you can find on a Notion Kanban board. Generally, they will be well-structured but not always:

  • Managing the schedules and calendars
  • Performing Croatian language research on various topics
  • Performing English language research on various topics
  • Event planning, organizing, and coordination
  • Arranging appointments for personal and professional needs
  • Scheduling maintenance and repair work, and supervising the project
  • Running errands and performing necessary tasks
  • Labeling, organizing, and restructuring storage
  • Shopping for food, supplies, and other requested items

The following traits are required.

You must have fluent written and spoken English and C1 or better Croatian language.

Many of the topics you'll be working on are sensitive in nature so confidentiality and discretion are needed. Because of the open-ended nature of the tasks, critical thinking and analytics skills are important.

Research is the name of the game, so the ability to summarize results is needed. You'll be documenting results in Notion and Google Gsuite.

Does this sound like something you'd excel at?
