CONNECT WITH CANDICE
Before launching Admin Avenues and The Executive Support, Candice Burningham spent nearly two decades working in Australia and the UK as a C-Suite Executive Assistant to some of the biggest and brightest minds globally. On returning to Australia, Candice saw two gaps in the market. One was for a niche job board and community support network dedicated to administrative staff. This led her to create Admin Avenues – Australia’s first premiere employment marketplace and community website for admin professionals. The second was for a white glove approach, ultra flexible virtual assistant service for those who don’t require support full-time but need assistance on a “tap in and out” basis. This led Candice to launch The Executive Support – a specialist agency for high-net-worth individuals, family offices, entrepreneurs and C-suite executives.
In her personal life, Candice is a long-time supporter of UNHCR Australia (The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and Ronald McDonald House. She is a LGBTQIA+ straight ally and also supports the Pride Foundation Australia.
