Our client, VinFast Auto Canada Inc., is in the early stages of executing their ambitious growth plans in Canada with a ‘Direct-to-Consumer’ business model and an aggressive retail and aftersales facility expansion over the next 12 months.

Position

Based out of a new office facility planned in the Hwy 427/401/QEW corridor, we are seeking an experienced CEO Assistant that will work closely with the CEO as the organization develops and expands into this new market.

Primary Responsibilities

A wide variety of activities and tasks will be common for this position and will include the composition of various forms of correspondence and communications for both internal and external purposes; managing extremely active and complex itineraries, travel plans, agendas, and appointments; compiling and/or assisting with the preparation of various documents, reports, analyses and presentations for meetings; preparing expense reports, etc.

Your responsibilities may also involve working with other members of the leadership team and assisting with the planning, organizing and monitoring of various functions and special events attended by internal and external guests and senior officials. Other tasks will be assigned as required.
