How will The Passionate PA benefit you?

Passion

As our name suggests, every service we offer comes with oodles of Passion. We make it our job to become a new pair of eyes for your company; looking for new clients, promotional opportunities, competitor activity and market changes all as part of our service to you.

Flexibility

This is key to all businesses, and definitely to the service offered by The Passionate PA. We offer solutions for all types of requirements whether you need work completing on a daily, weekly, monthly or ad hoc basis.

Support

Because we tailor our services to meet individual requirements, we are able to work alongside existing staff to undertake work when they are overstretched or on holiday. We even offer a ‘business sitting’ service for sole traders/directors who want to go on holiday whilst knowing every single call and email will be dealt with efficiently.

Time Saver

By outsourcing tasks to The Passionate PA, you can concentrate on the more important (profitable!) things, or use us to simply help you achieve a greater work/life balance.

Cost Effectiveness

You will pay for only the productive time and materials used on your work. Because we are a freelance service provider, you need not worry about all the red tape of an employee or the 'dead' time of a working day - if we are charging, we are being productive - end of! This also means you only pay for help when you need it, rather than paying wages for an additional person when you don’t actually need their skillset or time.

Reliability

We pride ourselves on getting the job done – quickly, effectively and with the least hassle possible to you. We work very hard at creating a relationship with you and establishing trust, leaving you safe in the knowledge that a professional, dedicated assistant is on hand.

Professional Partner

We will work in partnership with you, taking the time to get to know you, your business, your working style and needs. We offer honest advice and feedback allowing you to use your Passionate PA to brainstorm ideas and develop your strategies as and when it’s needed. Unlike employees, your family, and your friends, we see your business with YOUR goals in mind and from that we can help you plan and implement change.

Specialist

The Passionate PA is not just a personal assistant, no no no! We have an assortment of great PAs that are specialist in everything from Administration to Process Management, Marketing to Print Management, Event Organisation to Concierge projects. There are definitely things we can't (or won't!) do, but as with every fantastic PA, our skills are vast and invaluable.
