Business owners, company directors and MDs often can be said to fall under the heading ‘cash rich, time poor’. It stands to reason that in such responsible and demanding roles they will be paid well but often they struggle to meet with the demands of the job due to time restrictions. Even the top paid business people will often feel over-worked and stressed when trying to meet with their job’s requirements and this is before they try to build in their personal live also.
This is where a personal assistant can be of great help in making life easier and one that has had full PA training will be an invaluable asset to the company.The perfect personality for a PA is someone who thrives on a challenge. The most successful are those that cannot be bullied and are focused with great attention to detail.
This is not a job for the faint hearted as a personal assistant will be faced with a variety of challenges every day and will need to have the strength of character to field even the most persistent demands on their boss’s time. If their boss has a full schedule for the day they will have to diplomatically turn people away and field the many phone calls that will inundate the office. As time is a valuable commodity the main goal will be to ensure the boss is never double booked and their time is well spent.
There are many PA courses that can be taken to boost your ability to handle the position from book keeping to minute taking courses. Organisational skills are a must as a PA will need to work with a schedule weeks in advance. At Indiquo Ltd we have a full range of PA training courses to help you become indispensable.
