You have to be computer literate being proficient in MS Office. Being able to work independently, paying attention to detail and ofcourse strong coordination and planning skills - keeping in mind that you are maintaining calendars, booking meetings / conferences, travel arrangements etc for the team you are supporting..... last but no least the ability to priortize.
