Ad description

The attributes of a good PA are:
- efficient,
- self-motivated,
- organised,
- a good communicator, and
- IT literate.
PAs manage and source resources and conduct research, so they need to be well informed, and internet savvy. They also need to keep up to date with the latest office gadgets and industry practices.

Personal Assistants are calm under pressure and capable of thinking on their feet. They typically support senior managers, executives and teams, and, of course, Celebrity Personal Assistants work with VIP's. PAs are increasingly required to work for more than one person. Consequently, the PA role has become a highly stressful one, particularly for Executive PAs, as PAs generally have their own workload and special projects to deal with.

PAs need to be capable of competently dealing with situations in the boss’s absence, and should be confident enough to commission work on their principal's behalf. Maintaining confidentiality is a fundamental requirement for any PA.

PAs need to keep abreast of organisational issues and have a good understanding of the organisation's aims and objectives. Above all, a PA's role is to support her principal in his efforts to reach his targets and deliver on his strategic goals.

- reading, monitoring and responding to the principal's email,
