I while ago I shared on instagram how I was struggling hard to keep all my balls in the air. Being a Mum, a wife to a very busy husband while handling my own flourishing career has really become a little overwhelming of late. The light bulb moment was when I took a look at my diary and saw all the fantastic ‘top of my game’ jobs I had in the diary but my experience wasn’t one of joy. It was of stress and anxiety. So I made the fantastic decision to enroll a business/ life coach, Elizabeth Cairns to help me make some changes on how I run things along with keeping my eye on the inspirational big picture. I cannot wait to share with you what we plan together.
But the total light bulb moment came when during only our first session, Elizabeth stated “You need a PA”! I’d never even thought of it as I’m so used to keeping everything running and juggling all aspects of my businesses myself with the help of assistants on big projects. But the time has most definitely come for soemone to join me in a more consistent capacity. Especially if I’m ever going to fulfill all the exciting plans I have for my business, which include rolling out more courses on interior design, continuing to share my love of colour on social media and finally writing the book! The one I’ve been wanting to write for about 10 years but never carve the time out to do it!
So here is the job description, and wish me luck to finding that very special person whose going to make the biggest difference to my business and my life!
I’m looking for a part time PA to help support me run my fast growing business.
The applicant will be excited to work alongside me and my brand and be happy to juggle tasks across a range of different activities. You’ll be analytical, confident, pro-active, highly disciplined, focused, efficient and basically everything I am not!
A big part of my business is running my social media campaigns, so you’ll be tech savvy and confident using wordpress, instagram, facebook and twitter and managing apps such as later.com, tailwind, hootesuite etc. You’ll also be happy using drop box to archive and resize images.
Other responsibilities will include collating emails, organising accounts and liasing with my book keeper/accountant, managing the logistics around the events and courses I run.
Please note this is not a job for a creative but suitable for someone who wants to support my business in an organisational capacity. Discretion is paramount and solid experience essential.
I’m looking for 8 hours a week, spread over the week. A level of flexibility is required to add hours when necessary. For example around busy events.
Will consider local (Brighton, UK) and virtual PA’s
