Regarded as an essential part of a busy lifestyle, a Personal Assistant is essentially charged with making someone else's life easier.
Not to be confused with an Executive Assistant, the role of a PA will be many and varied depending on the demands of the employer. From shopping for an impromptu dinner party to assisting with complex reports the daily life of a PA will be a roller coaster ride.
Employers in the field consist of but are not limited to high flying business executives, entertainers and musicians
Often described as a "life saver", a PA becomes involved in her employers life not only professionally but on a personal level, at times asked to attend to multiple tasks imposing on the employee's own time.
You will be working under pressure, and problem solving on the go. You will be confident, impeccably groomed, responsive and responsible. Confidentiality in all aspects of your employers business is a given and may form a part of your employment contract.
So if you're prepared to be underpaid but over appreciated this could be the role for you.
