Private PA’s are as unique as the UHNW individuals / families that employ them. We specialise in matching experienced private PAs into private households and do so with the utmost care and discretion. A private PA is crucial to the smooth running of their principal’s day to day life. Often providing assistance to their families, paying household bills, managing household / chartered staff, organising all private travel and overseeing any renovation projects that maybe taking place. With our excellent reputation of being one of the best private PA recruitment agencies in London we have the expertise and network to provide you with a selection of exceptional candidates.
Great care is taken to fully understand the job brief and the fit of the private PA required. This is ideally done face to face with the principal or someone who knows the principal and the family well. We take this opportunity to learn all about your expectations and requirements, getting a clear picture of personalities and experience needed. At this stage we can go through any questions that you may have. We can assist with the recruitment of private household staff including private personal assistant, junior private PA, private secretary, travelling private PA and part time private PA.
We will then go back to the office and have a meeting with all our senior Consultants who have experience within private household recruitment to discuss our potential pool of candidates. After selecting our shortlist, they will be contacted and discretely briefed on the role before submitting a shortlist to you within an agreed specified time (normally 48 hours from taking the brief).
Prior to introducing any private PA candidates to you we will have conducted a face to face interview with all the potential candidates. During the interview we take time to get to know the candidates personally, drilling down on their private household experience and finding out their long-term goals. The candidates are introduced to several of our senior consultants to discuss their personal motivations as well as their work history and the strong relationship we have with our candidates starts here. We also assess their skills and take up reference details at this stage. Many of our private household PAs come highly recommended to us.
Once the interview stage has been completed we will steer you through the offer and contract phase, taking up references if requested and confirm the start date. If needed, we can also offer advice on salary and benefits and assist with the onboarding process. Please enquire about hiring a PA by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
