The ‘to do list’ was never-ending. Even in our technological advancements, the paper bills, tax returns, gifts to order and contractors to manage was exhausting. Samantha had had enough. A young entrepreneur, she was focused on building her own consultancy business. Newly wed, married life was fantastic, but with her husband working long hours, Samantha often found that the daily tasks in life fell to her. She didn’t have a problem with it, but she did wonder how she could minimise this daily ‘admin’.
The final straw was when her new husband landed a huge account with his business, and the couple discussed how he would be travelling for the next few months. Samantha decided enough was enough.
So what did she do?
The Household Personal Assistant
In this modern day, gone is the stigma that a modern ‘woman’ or indeed ‘man’ should complete all the household tasks themselves. Housekeepers and Nannies are all commonplace in professional families. You don’t need to be a celebrity or royalty to afford help. Clara realised that there was a real possibility for the newlyweds to hire a household personal assistant – a lovely organised and efficient person to help manage the household admin.
A household personal assistant to a private family is more than an office assistant. Over 70% of PAs who transition from corporate to domestic PAs recognise that it’s a completely different type of job. Your hours are less regulated and you are expected to have a much deeper understanding of the tasks at hand in order to make the right decisions.

But in turn, the perks are greater. A well-known entrepreneur who hired a travelling PA, expected them to travel around the world with them, whilst at the same time managing all their family affairs from the private jet!
With salaries ranging from £28K for entry level household personal assistants to £80K+, this can be a lucrative and exciting career path for many women and men. It’s for those who are inspired by providing the very highest level of care and attention to assist their principals.
Household personal assistants are expected to do many tasks (and not just those based around computers and admin). From purchasing a new Bentley for their employer through to taking the dog to a vet appointment, no task is too small or big for a household personal assistant. In fact, behind every great CEO, or private family, there is an equally great personal assistant who knows when each birthday (and what type of gift) should be sent!
Did Hiring a Household Personal Assistant Work For Samantha?
Samantha looked into recruiting a household personal assistant and was surprised by the standard of applications she received. She wanted someone who would be passionate about helping her and her husband create a perfect life/work balance. And achieve it they did.
The household personal assistant worked a flexi-schedule, allowing for some weeks where Samantha’s workload became heavier due to client deadlines. The PA worked remotely on some days and on others was based in Samantha’s spare room, running errands, ensuring all the household admin was dealt with.
When Samantha’s husband returned from his lengthy business trip, he returned to a new wife! Samantha was relaxed and happier in the knowledge that all the household tasks were dealt with. Now she could focus on important work developments and sharing a wonderful bottle of wine with her husband as she relaxed (with their new puppy!)
