Job description


  • Entry level
  • No Education
  • Salary to negotiate
  • Stanmore


I need a personal assistant to help me run my consulting business and related activities (various board roles and a portfolio of investments, business interests and philanthropic activity) as well as help organise social and family events and finances.

Hopefully you will enjoy diary management and extensive liaison with senior PAs scheduling meetings on both a recurring and ad hoc basis, together with filing and general organisation of papers, agendas, board minutes and meeting notes. You will also make travel arrangements (UK and international; on average 2-4 trips per month).

You should be able to maintain financial records, prepare invoices, pay bills, maintain different sets of expenses for reclaiming from different clients and generally help 'run the business'

Ideally you will take on additional projects and responsibilities - for example preparing pitch documents, researching sales prospects, maintaining website pages, liaising with accountants and PR advisers etc.

I am out and about, mainly in central London, but with my base at home in Stanmore. Where you work from is reasonable flexible - partly in Stanmore, partly from (your) home and occasionally in the west end or further afield. I am much more interested in the right person than in being rigid about location (but I do not want a 'virtual' PA please). I would imagine starting by offering a fixed term contract, but I very much want to find a permanent PA, ideally one who wants to grow in experience in the role.

Written and spoken English, telephone manner and numeracy are all important to me. Ideally you will have experience of some or most of the tasks listed above, and be willing to learn. You will be proficient with MS Outlook.
