Personal Assistant


As a personal assistant you'll be helping out your boss with whatever they need, from managing a diary to typing up reports or planning meetings. Basically, you help organise their life so they'll always know where they need to be and what they're doing. 

Your duties as a personal assistant will largely depend on your experience, the length of time you’ve worked in the company and the level of trust you have with your boss.

  • Typing up minutes
  • Organising diaries
