What it takes to be a Personal Assistant

This is not a typical Personal Assistant role. Our Personal Assistants are responsible for managing all of the projects and workloads of our Director team. As such, you’ll not only need to have professionalism and great organisational skills, but initiative and a real knack for problem solving. Topping this off, outstanding communication and administrative skills are a must, allowing you to manage the efficient flow of information in your work area and generally helping improve the quality of output overall.

Organisational skills are a must. To put it bluntly, if you don’t have them, then the job’s not for you

The ability to have a hands-on influence on not only their work area but the broader business is a real source of satisfaction for our Personal Assistants.

The role challenges: 

Hard work
Fast paced
High pressure
Dealing with unexpected issues
Tight deadlines

Being a fast-paced environment, the ability to deal with high-pressure situations in a calm manner is essential.
