Executive Assistants in London can expect salaries to be at the higher end of the support staff spectrum. The level depends on each role’s specifications and the more project oriented the Executive Assistant position, the higher the salary.
We are often asked to define the difference between an Executive Assistant and a Personal Assistant. The answer is ambiguous because one company may use the job title “Executive Assistant” and another may use the term “Personal Assistant” to describe exactly the same job requirement.
However, the most appropriate distinction, if there is one, is that the role of an Executive Assistant in London is more project orientated than a Personal Assistant in London. For example, the core duties of a Personal Assistant will include diary and travel organisation and the core duties of an Executive Assistant may include personal work and more responsibility in their Boss’s absence.
