Job Description

As an Executive Assistant (EA) for our Chief Information Officer (CIO) and the IT Department at NuVasive, you will play a critical role within the executive staff team as you provide first class administrative support to the IT department in a demanding, fast-paced, and highly customer-focused environment.  Using your multi-tasking skills, you confidently manage Executive calendars, scheduling and planning logistics for all professional appointments in an ever-changing environment, ensuring timeliness and correct attendees, and alignment with IT Leadership deliverables.

You are sharp as a tack which enables you to conduct research, analyze data, and initiate necessary changes to maximize the effectiveness of assigned projects including drafting and editing correspondence, creating/maintaining database spreadsheet files and reports, composing and assisting with presentation materials (PowerPoint) and processing IT Department Purchase requisitions.  You record key decisions and action items during staff meetings and ensure they are completed by the assignee ahead of due dates. 

Because you understand the inherent need for confidentiality and diplomacy in all of your correspondence, you easily screen incoming calls/correspondence and respond independently (when appropriate), give information to callers or route calls to appropriate individuals, and prioritize/route incoming mail and/or correspondence acting on those that need immediate action.  You are self-motivated with a strong work ethic and professional demeanor, super organized and innately resourceful taking pride in communicating clearly to a diverse population across both internal and external groups.
