Family Personal Assistant – Which is Right for Your Family?


Published on July 13, 2017

Hiring a personal assistant for your family can be a wise choice.  Many families look to discover the advantages of this type of staff when life and diary management becomes all too hectic and busy!  Perhaps the children have grown to an age where they need less management, or perhaps the principal(s) of the house need support with daily routines and admin for the property.

Whatever the case might be, there are multiple routes to hire a family personal assistant.

Nanny/Personal Assistant

Some families whose children typically tend to be slightly older, look to combine the role of a Nanny/PA.  The nanny will care for the children whenever required, taking the children to their daily activities and helping in the house.  But whilst the children are at school, the PA duties will become more present, from bill payments, paperwork, dealing with contractors and deliveries etc.

A switched on Nanny/PA will ensure that family life is easy and efficient, and admin is kept on top of regardless if the family or children are on holiday.

Typical duties might include:

  • Diary Management
  • Party and Event Management
  • Payroll and Booking
  • Bill Payments
  • Paperwork and office administration
  • Dealing with contractors/repairs in the home
  • Arranging deliveries
  • Stock taking
  • Inventory
  • Shopping
  • Errands
  • Booking travel
  • Emails & Phone Calls
  • Reservations
  • Pet Care
  • Childcare

Housekeeper/Personal Assistant

For families without children, they may wish to combine specific household duties with the personal assistant skills.  In these instances, the housekeeper/personal assistant will provide support in general housework, through to personal assistance for any specific projects and daily routines of the principals.  A great option for families or principals that have grown up children or no children.

By combining the family personal assistant with any additional household duties such as childcare and pet care, it allows the family a greater skill variety and duties completed in the property, giving peace of mind and flexibility for all household duties.
