What is a private PA?

The role of a private PA (also known as lifestyle PA or private household PA) is highly variable and is dependent on the lifestyles of the Principal or family they are supporting.

Generally, this role encompasses the administrative management of a Principal or family’s personal life, with the day-to-day support in running a household, organising travel and overseeing finances.

Furthermore, a private PA can help with caring for children, running personal errands, handling specific projects such as planning a holiday or house move and supervising other household staff.

In short, having someone to help with domestic administration allows you to focus on the things that matter, whether that be quality time with your family or the time to focus on key business activity.
