You Know You’re a Personal Assistant When…

Posted on Friday, August 23, 2019 by Top London PANo comments

We have a bit of a long-standing joke, born entirely of being a busy PA recruitment agency. It’s that slightly long look at each other that conveys—in a moment—we get what working in PA jobs in London really means. Here are a few of our top “you know you’re a PA when” moments of the last couple of months.

You’ve been waiting for a phone call all morning, step out of the office for one minute and miss it…

This one is a favourite of ours. The catch 22 that can leave you stuck to your desk, dodging coffee runs or photocopying, simply so that you don’t miss that important call. We often wonder how many individuals working in PA jobs in London are waiting for that call at any one time and how often sod’s law means you miss it.

You’re addicted to post-it notes…

Ooh, we love a post-it note! Our London recruitment agency specialises in PA jobs, so we probably have the best collection of post-its in the capital!

You get to know people by the sound of their footsteps…

As a PA, you often develop a sixth sense about what your executive needs. However, we’ve realised that PAs can often tell it’s their executive coming when no one else has even registered movement. It’s all part of being switched on to what they need and when they need it.

You dream about diaries and Google calendar…

It can’t be helped, a PA’s dreams are full of scheduling—if only we could schedule our dreams too! The only danger comes when your dream is so lifelike that you think you’ve put something in the diary but it was just a figment of your slumbering imagination.

You come up with organisational app ideas which would keep app developers gainfully employed…

We’re constantly coming up with fictional app ideas that would make the lives as those doing PA jobs in London just a little easier. There are loads on the market, but we know we could make them even better, if we weren’t so busy!

You can predict an answer before you ask the question…

Back to that insider knowledge of your executive, you know you’re a great PA when you can pretty much guess exactly what your boss will say when. Just don’t let that be a reason for not asking! In fact, we can also add to this with a task that you do because you know your boss will want it eventually.

You can recommend a London venue for anywhere, anytime, anything…

When working in PA jobs and office support jobs in London, you quickly become a pro to rival the Time Out guide. You know where’s great for a light bite, a work social, or which event your boss needs to be at.

So what’s your “You know you’re a PA when…” moment? We’d love to hear yours…
