What is a Personal Assistant (PA)?

A personal assistant in household staffing for family offices manages administrative tasks to ensure smooth operations. They act as a central support figure, coordinating various activities and alleviating administrative burdens for family members and executives within the office. A personal assistant is a valuable and essential asset for senior-level management, high-net-worth individuals, family offices or business owners.

To provide clarity, the duties of a personal assistant typically encompass a variety of tasks, including:

  • Handling and monitoring correspondence such as calls and emails
  • Managing administrative tasks
  • Filing, collating expenses and database management
  • Compiling letters, note-taking and reports
  • Organising client diary
  • Taking on ad hoc projects assigned by the client
  • Communication with the client and reminding them of important tasks
  • Scheduling meetings, events and conferences
  • Arranging travel logistics and accommodation
  • Co-ordinating and liaising with household staff, security teams, clients and suppliers
  • Organising client’s personal commitments including security, childcare and staffing
  • Running errands


 A personal assistant can be hired part-time or employed full-time to undertake clerical duties and private errands.

What are the benefits of having a personal assistant?

The benefits of having your own exclusive assistant are boundless. Most notably, by taking away the tedious and time-consuming tasks undertaken by the personal assistant. Therefore, the client has more time to focus on the most important matters. Additionally, the client is able to balance a greater private and business lifestyle. Spending more time with family and friends, or more time on business matters.

However, it is also very important to ensure you have the right personal assistant for your requirements. Otherwise, it could be costly and a waste of a client’s valuable time.

What’s the difference between a secretary and a personal assistant?

A personal assistant is not the same as a secretary. In general, a secretary is most attentive to office-based administrative duties. Whereby, a personal assistant would have a wider range of personal duties and responsibilities in taking care of the client’s personal life too.

What makes a high-end personal assistant?

High-end personal assistants are in very close contact with the client. Additionally, they supervise other staff to oversee the smooth running and daily operations. Also, an experienced personal assistant will have developed and perfected the following.


  • Well educated and experienced
  • International verbal communication skills
  • Multicultural etiquette
  • Deportment, mastery of manners and presentation
  • Active listening skills
  • Attentive customer service
  • Sensitivity and understanding
  • Leadership skills
  • Multi-tasking skills
  • Pre-empt and problem-solve.
  • Decreet and professional when handling sensitive situations
  • Ability to work well with others and inspire a good work ethic
  • Excellent concentration skills
  • Household staffing and concierge skills
  • Understanding of modern technology, systems and accounting

What’s the difference between a personal assistant and an executive assistant?

The two positions can be very similar and are often interchangeable and adapted to suit the client’s requirements. However, although both have some similar duties there are some key differences. An executive assistant is a superior role and is regarded as a progressive step up from a personal assistant. The executive assistant will have more responsibilities and authorisation with decision-making due to their experience, qualifications and understanding of business.

Moreover, they are also customer-facing and involved in business operations. It is a middle management position which provides important contact between other senior executives and the client’s businesses.

  • Is it a short-term or long-term contract?
  • How many hours or days a week?
  • Live in or live out?
  • What are the daily tasks/scope of work?
  • What level of responsibility and involvement in business operations?
  • How many personal assistants are required?
  • Are security services and accreditations required?

  • PA part-time: £20 to £50 per hour
