Private Staff, PA & Yacht Crew Vacancies

Personal Assistant – Surrey

Up to £70k (negotiable DOE)|Surrey|Permanent

An experienced Personal Assitant is required to support a UHNW client in Surrey. Applicants must have previous experience in a 1-1 fast-paced PA role.

A client from the US requires a highly experienced personal assistant. The PA will be required to work from the home office of the client on a very large country estate less than 1-hour from London. Some occasional travel to London may be required for shadowing meetings or social events.

The selected applicant will manage the client’s busy personal diary, manage the Principal’s extensive travel schedule and itinerary (liaise with pilots, arrange occasional commercial travel for long haul trips), make restaurant and hotel reservations, negotiate purchases (including gift sourcing and larger purchases such as luxury vehicles etc).

Suitable candidates will have an established and reliable book of contacts and suppliers and be looking for a 24/7 role that allows for some remote working. This is a fast-paced position with occasional international travel required (to the USA plus general international travel).

Those with previous experience within a similar role and proven longevity in previous employment would be of interest to the client. This is a unique opportunity to support a high-profile UHNW Principal. You will be working side by side with a private security detail and must have an acute level of discretion, confidentiality and security awareness.

The ideal applicant will be educated to degree level (preferred but not essential), articulate, well presented and calm under pressure.

Due to the highly confidential nature of this search, further details will be provided to suitable applicants including specific location and field of industry. All shortlisted applicants are required to sign an NDA ahead of first-round interviews which will be conducted by the client directly.
