Why Hire A Private Personal Assistant?

Employing a private personal assistant is essential for busy families, couples, and professionals.  A qualified personal assistant understands the “behind the scenes” tasks that a busy individual needs assistance with daily and can help alleviate many day-to-day stressors. Keeping your home organized, handling monthly budgets and scheduling time to rest with family and friends are all tasks a trusted personal assistant can handle with ease.

Duties of Personal Assistants

Duties vary from overseeing calendars and schedules, organizing travel, paying bills and managing investments, event planning, various errands, project management, and even assisting in an office setting. 

The personal assistant may take on similar tasks to a house manager.  These tasks include hiring and training other household staff, bookkeeping, and managing vendors.  Above all, a personal assistant must be able to evolve as the needs change and assist with a variety of tasks to make busy lives easier.  A personal assistant must be highly discreet, excel at multitasking, and have extensive experience in a formal, private, and busy residence.

“This is a wonderful agency!!I have a seven-year-old daughter and the team at BAHS has helped me with different nannies for the different stages of her development and, tutors and occasional staffing needs. Once you are part of the BAHS family they will truly work with you to support your family and get you the best possible staff – and always make you feel understood and with respect for your privacy.”

– SR, Client

“I recently utilized this agency to help me find a nanny for my six year old son.  I can’t say enough good things about the quality of the service at BAHS.  They really listened to my needs, and only sent me candidates who met my criteria and who were really interested in working with my family.  The agency’s responsiveness, attention to detail and ability to be discrete was top notch.  While I hope our current nanny stays with us as long as we need, I would use this agency again if I ever have additional staffing needs.”

-CA, Client

“I cannot recommend this agency enough. I am a British Nanny with twenty seven years of experience so I have encountered many agencies both here and London during my working life. It did take time for me to find the right position as I am choosy, but each time I decided a job wasn’t right for me they didn’t criticize my reasoning but just persevered in finding what would eventually be the perfect fit for me.”
