Why a Household PA
Time is precious
There are only 24 hours in a days
Commute to work, emails, meetings, calls, projects, reports, more meetings, commute
home, catch up on emails, dinner with family, international Zoom call, finish that report,
fall into bed remembering that you forgot to order flowers for your anniversary or pick up
the dry cleaning on the way home, only to do it all again tomorrow, sound familiar?
The majority of our days are taken up by work not leaving nearly enough time to relax
and spend time with our family, friends or enjoy hobbies and take greater care of ourselves.
In modern households, families and individuals look to maximise their time, and most importantly their free time, to focus on the things that they enjoy most. Looking for help and support in the household is a valued and respected request.
Families will hire Housekeepers (part time and full time) to look after their homes, Nannies to help care for their children, Chefs to help with daily cooking and Chauffeurs to help with driving. So, what benefit does a Household PA bring?
You need someone to assist with your life admin but don’t require someone on a full-time basis. All those time-consuming tasks can be handed over ensuring you never miss an appointment, bills are paid on time, that important dinner is booked.
Engaging Your Household PA is not just for the UHNWI or the celebrity lifestyle.
Many busy professionals find that hiring a Household PA is one of the most astute decisions they make and the PA often turns out to play a key role in their success.
Your Household PA may be the one single individual who could make a difference to the quality of your private life.
