What does a personal assistant do?

As a personal assistant, your responsibilities will depend on the team, business and industry in which you are working. If you’re providing high-level support to just one individual, such as a C-Suite executive or partner, you may find yourself completely managing their working life, managing complex diaries, booking global travel, managing inboxes and arranging meetings and other events.

A team PA will also be required to manage diaries and travel, but may do so for a wider team while also acting as the first point of contact, preparing relevant business documents and conducting any other administrative duties.  Whatever you’re looking for, our expert team of consultants will work with you to find the perfect position.

TEMPORARY, CONTRACT AND PERMANENT PA ROLES

We recruit both permanent and temporary PA jobs in NYC and beyond. Both our permanent and temporary consultants are experts in their fields and have comprehensive experience in matching impressive PAs to employers of choice. From one-day assignments through to maternity leave cover or temp-to-hire contracts, we can help. So, if you are looking to progress your career as a PA in New York or further afield, we’ll make your search an enjoyable and stress-free experience.

SKILLS NEEDED TO BE A PA IN NEW YORK

While there are plenty of PA jobs in NYC, the competition is also fierce. The more skills or experience you have under your belt, the greater chance you have of landing your perfect personal assistant job.

The role of a full- or part-time personal assistant in New York has changed dramatically in the last forty years. There is less call for those with traditional administrative skills and more of a demand for candidates with all-round capabilities, including excellent organizational and project management skills along with a robust knowledge of MS Office – particularly across Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Additionally, successful PA candidates need to be exceptionally confident in MS Outlook where they’re managing complex diaries and travel itineraries, especially across multiple time zones.

A degree-qualified PA is preferred by many of our clients who are looking for someone to step up and work at a senior capacity.

Finally, it is expected that candidates can type at least 50WPM accurately. At Tiger, we are required by our clients to test all candidates and can provide you with a copy of your scores.

How much does a PA Earn?

A PA’s salary depends completely on the role and industry they are based in. In professional and financial services, they can expect to earn anywhere between $70,000-$110,000, while in creative and not-for-profit industries, the salary expands from $50,000- $80,000. In a family office, a PA’s salary range is similar to those in professional or financial services. 



Private PA Jobs

Looking for a different type of support role? We help candidates find exceptional private personal assistant roles supporting UHNWI and family offices across NYC. Often, becoming a private PA requires fierce attention to detail, the ability to work flexible hours and the drive to complete tasks that may seem impossible for their principal.

Along with typical personal assistant tasks, a private PA role is often dependent on the principal they are supporting. It may include organizing lavish events, luxurious holidays and travel itineraries, or working with other household staff to support the busy lives of their principal.

VIRTUAL PA JOBS

VIRTUAL PA JOBS

Senior PAs looking for more flexibility may prefer a virtual PA job. This role requires the same organization, communication and time management skills of a PA, but is completed from the comfort of your home or co-working space.

Just like a personal assistant job based in an office, a virtual PA will usually look after diaries and inboxes, book travel and organize events. They may also work on larger projects.
