Celebrity Personal Assistant
What is a Celebrity Personal Assistant
Many celebrities will have their own PA, or “right hand” person. A celebrity PA must be discrete, discerning and willing to go above and beyond what might be seen as everyday working patterns.
Handling confidential matters, this role includes taking responsibility for scheduling calendars, both private and business, arranging public appearances, securing travel arrangements and maintaining itineraries.
The celebrity PA will oversee the household staff and liaise with contractors to arrange for any home maintenance. Blending with the personality of their employer is key for a celebrity PA. Meeting schedules, and the demands of the employer is essential, even if it means doing things normally considered outside the normal scope of the job. Celebrity personal assistants bring stability and calmness to the employer’s life. If this means getting their hands dirty or stepping into the shoes of a nanny, housekeeper or chauffeur to fill in the gap, then it must be done.
By nature, celebrity PAs must be very flexible, hands-on and capable of multitasking to make things happen. They must work well under pressure, able to handle hectic work schedules, have high endurance and be willing to work long and odd hours.
Handling correspondence and phone calls, taking care of bills, insurance and other personal affairs, is all included in a celebrity PA’s duties. They must manage different projects as needed and carry out all necessary research and follow through on personal tasks. They run errands and are often required to shop for gifts and other personal items.
Celebrity PAs must keep their employers fully abreast of all the day’s events to ensure their day runs smoothly.
