Job Description

Looking for a new PA role? A private family office based in the West End is looking for a well presented, articulate candidate to come on board to work in small office based very near Marylebone. This role is looking after a UHNWI, helping run his day-to-day life in a business and personal capacity.

This role is working in a lovely townhouse office alongside one other PA - you'll work very closely together so chemistry is key but there will be times when you will be on your own in the office and therefore being happy with your own company is essential. This is a busy role and so does require a high level of organisation and communication, as well as strong attention to detail.

The family are demanding and exacting and expect a high level of professionalism at all times. Having said that they are incredibly respectful and do not expect 24/7 or out of hours support. The hours are 9.30am - 5.30pm and allows a good work / life balance.

  • Processing Executive Chairman’s and Deputy Chairman’s expenses for all companies in the U.K. and abroad
  • Supporting Office Manager with overflow administration work (all ad hoc)
  • Opening post and distributing post to remote working teams via scans and email
  • All administrative work for Deputy Chairman’s UK financial investment company, liaising with the Deputy Chairman’s technology company team abroad and newly formed charity if and when needed.
  • Filing and document preparation


  • Able to multitask, be organised and to adhere to deadlines
  • Intermediate or advanced IT skills
  • Understanding the sense of urgency when dealing with the principles and their requests
  • Ability to prioritise work tasks
  • Happy to independently support deputy chairman and work together with the office manager on administrative projects. Also, happy to support office manager with additional administrative tasks.
  • Happy to work in a small and quiet (not workload wise but not a bubbly environment) family office
  • Professional, diligent, and hard working
  • Good communicator with fluent English and excellent writing skills
  • Working knowledge of iPhones and iPads preferable
