What Does Personal Assistant Mean?

Unlike other household staff who may focus on specific tasks like cleaning or childcare, a personal assistant provides comprehensive support. They can handle a broad range of administrative and personal tasks to ensure everything runs seamlessly.

  • General administration: your personal assistant can take charge of the household’s paperwork, take calls for you, and keep up with urgent emails. This minimises disruptions but ensures that important messages reach you when you are ready to hear them.
  • Household management: an assistant plays a crucial role in the home by ensuring that all household operations are planned and executed efficiently.  This may involve scheduling regular maintenance, managing service appointments, and keeping the household calendar up-to-date. This can also include managing household staff if you already have several people working at your residence.
  • Personal errands and affairs: from booking your next holiday to keeping track of family birthdays and special events, a personal assistant can handle your plans outside of work so you do not have to worry about organising your free time.

Experienced personal assistants are professional and adaptable, adjusting their methods to suit the dynamic needs of your household. The right person can streamline your day-to-day and reduce your stress by taking over the management of routine tasks. This allows you and your family to focus on spending quality time together, pursuing personal interests, and enjoying a balanced life.

What Are the Typical Working Hours for a Private Household Assistant?

Personal assistants are typically employed on a full-time basis, and typically work 35 to 40 hours per week. The standard schedule usually runs from Monday to Friday and covers the core hours from 9 AM to 5 or 6 PM. This arrangement ensures that the assistant is available during key hours to manage tasks such as appointments, errands, and overall household coordination.

For families that require less support, part-time options are available. Part-time assistants work from 20 to 30 hours per week. They might work only mornings, afternoons, or select days of the week, depending on what tasks need to be covered and the family's schedule.

One of the benefits of hiring a household personal assistant is flexibility in scheduling. Custom schedules can be arranged to fit specific needs, such as early mornings, late evenings, or weekend availability, especially when the family's schedule involves irregular hours or frequent events. This adaptability is crucial for maintaining an orderly home that aligns with your family's dynamic lifestyle.

There may be instances where you require your assistant to work overtime - for example, during special events like parties, family gatherings, or extensive travel preparations. You should discuss this with your candidates, including any additional compensation or compensatory time-off arrangements, and make sure to inform them well in advance of these events. Clear communication ensures that both parties are aligned and satisfied with the terms.

The working hours of a household personal assistant might also vary seasonally. For example, during school holidays or when planning for significant events like weddings or major anniversaries, you might require their services more than usual.
