LivCor, a Blackstone portfolio company, is a real estate asset management business specializing in multi-family housing. Formed in 2013 and headquartered in Chicago, LivCor is currently responsible for a portfolio of over 400 Class A and B properties comprising more than 150,000 units in markets across the United States. 

 

Our business is focused on making real estate more valuable. But for us, it’s more than that. It’s people first, community always. It’s a life-filled career, not just a career-filled life. It’s doing good work, with good humans, and making a difference. It’s excellence in all its forms. Ultimately, we create great places to work, live, and grow. We do that by focusing on leaving people – and places – better than we found them.  

 

Whew! Still with us? Cool. Let’s talk about where you’d fit in:  

 

We are looking for an experienced executive assistant to support three senior leaders – the Head of Legal, Head of Communications, and Head of Strategy & Planning. Executive Assistant…what does that even mean? Assisting executives? To us, that barely begins to describe what EAs do. We think of this role as a force multiplier – a real-life superhero and central to helping our teams win.  

 

Our teams support LivCor’s growth and help enable all the other teams further our mission to leave people and places better than when we found them. The three leaders and teams you would support are all unique (in a good way), so you’ll be comfortable switching between different styles/preferences.  

 

The usual stuff you will cover includes things like proactive calendar management, scheduling, organizing travel, and supporting with expenses. In a dream world, you’re also curious, creative, and fun. We’d love to have you bring these traits and help with special projects, research, and culture building.  

If you are looking for an opportunity to do meaningful work helping a team make a real difference, this is the role for you.

What we offer: 

We know that if we take care of our team everything else will fall into place. We aren’t perfect, but we will try to set very clear expectations, always let you know where you stand, and do everything in our power to help you get where you want to go. 

 

Our culture and values matter to us. A lot. We’re definitely not serious but we take this stuff seriously, if you get what we mean. We want a place that is an ego-free zone. A place where good people do good things together. It shouldn’t be rocket science in workplaces, but for some reason it still is? We’re absolutely determined to be different, and we think we’re doing a pretty good job at it. We have a CEO who makes fun of himself, and who will encourage you to tell him when he is wrong. In fact, he needs people to – we all do. Supportive challenge is good, it’s how we get better. We like getting better. We also love diversity, of all kinds. We need people who look, sound, speak, love, and exist differently from one another. This isn’t at the end of this paragraph because it’s an afterthought. It’s SO important to us we want it to stand out.  

 

Right. On to the technical stuff that we know matters to you. We offer competitive pay that is commensurate with the market and relevant experience, and a full slate of benefits that even includes things like paid parental leave.  

   

If any of this sounds interesting, then maybe we are a fit. Life is too short to work with people you don’t like. So whatever you do, don’t make that mistake.  

 

The LivCorian Values 

  1. Be you. Be Real. Be Open. You do you. Together, we will do something amazing. 
  2. Care, Always. We don’t want to let anyone down. 
  3. Courageously Curious. We love to learn, even when it hurts. 
  4. Help Others Win, Be A Good Neighbor. This is about ‘We, not Me.’
