Temporary, contract and permanent PA roles

Your responsibilities as a PA depends on the team, business and industry in which you are working. If you are 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 PA recruitment consultants will work with you to find the perfect position.

We recruit both permanent and temporary PA jobs in London 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. Find out more about the team here.

So, if you are looking for a senior PA job in London or are looking for an international PA job, we can make your search an enjoyable and stress-free experience.

Skills needed to be a PA in London

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

The role of PA in London has changed dramatically from the 1980s. There is less call for those with traditional PA skills and more of a demand for candidates to have all-round capabilities, including excellent organisational and project management skills and a strong knowledge of MS Office systems. In particular, all candidates should be confident in pulling together mail merges in Word; collating expenses and generating charts and tables in Excel and creating presentations or slideshows with custom animation in Powerpoint.

One of the most important skills for personal assistants in London is MS Outlook. Successful PA candidates need to be confident arranging diaries and travel using the diary functions, especially across multiple time zones.

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 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 £30,000-£60,000, while in creative and not-for-profit industries, the salary expands from £28,000- £50,000.

In a family office, a PA’s salary can range from £30,000- £60,000, while a virtual PA can charge anywhere between £25-30 p/h.

Virtual PA Jobs

Senior PAs that are looking for more flexibility, or returning to work after parental leave, may look for a virtual PA job. This role requires the same organisation, communication and time management skills of a PA, but is completed from the comfort of your home.

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