Job Details



GYST is a modern assistant service providing experienced, skilled and savvy personal and executive assistants to HNW and UHNW individuals, families and entrepreneurs in NYC. We set our clients free to focus on what matters most. GYST offers accomplished assistants the unique opportunity to be part of a new model which allows assistants to work with a handful of influential, inspirational and prominent clients on an ongoing basis to make up a flexible, 20+ hour work week. You will be joining a team of peers and enjoy access to shared resources, leadership support and opportunities for advancement in our growing organization.

GYST Assistants work with up to four clients to make up a 20+ hour work week. We build our Assistants’ client rosters carefully and thoughtfully, with the emphasis on matching Assistants and Clients for the long haul. Because we make sure to get our Client/Assistant matches right the first time, it may take 4-6 weeks to fully build out your roster. This role allows (and requires!) great flexibility and autonomy while still providing support and community.
