The job of an Personal Assistant
An EA or PA role is probably one of the most intense roles within an organisation, though this is offset with a sizable salary as remuneration for the level of organisation and extended hours that might be required. Whilst some PA/EA’s are more administrative others are almost like business partners to CEOs for example.
As a Personal or Executive Assistant, you will work very closely with the senior management or executive members of the organisation. You will be providing high level of administrative support, very often on a one-to-one basis.
The role of a Personal Assistant/ Executive Assistant includes, but is not limited to:
- Minute taking
- Diary management
- Travel arrangements
- Office management
- Answering phone calls
- Answering emails on behalf of your manager
- Liaising with staff, clients and suppliers
- Conducting research on behalf of the manager
Qualifications & Experience
No qualifications are necessarily needed although some people do take Secretarial or Personal Assistant courses. Experience is usually gained through jobs in Admin, Reception or Office Management after which it could be possible to move on to a PA followed onto a EA role.
Permanent contract: £27,000 – £65,000
