Why every business needs a competent assistant - and the tasks they can do for you

The day to day running of a business is usually down to managers, team leaders and bosses; each with their own role, goals and responsibilities. Being a key part of any business can take up a lot of time and energy and though extremely rewarding, many people are left without the time to worry about the important day-to-day tasks. So, why not consider hiring an assistant?

There are a number of benefits to hiring an assistant for your business and if you choose the right assistant, you’ll find you have someone you can trust to take care of the details. 

What Can An Assistant Do For You?

An assistant is often the first person many people will meet when they arrive at your business and therefore having one is a great opportunity to ensure the first impression is perfect. At Secretary Affairs we specialise in finding glamorous, accomplished assistants who do just that. 

It is likely that an assistant will have some professional skills that you do not, making your team more well-rounded and providing the opportunity for other members of staff to learn new skills too. 

As an assistant will be on top of things at all times, they become a second set of eyes and ears for you. For example, if you didn’t get notes from a meeting or you need to double check some facts, an assistant is on hand to help.

Assistants can take care of the important daily tasks that keep organisations profitable, organised and productive- filing, scheduling, bookings, meetings, logistics, admin etc. 

An assistant is an extension of you and a trusted, safe pair of hands able to make a consistent and valued contribution to your business operations. From dealing with key contacts to ensuring key tasks are completed to deadline, a capable assistant can ensure your own productivity and effectiveness is optimal. 

Managing an assistant is an excellent way to develop your management skills and is ideal for those taking their first step towards managing a large team. 

An assistant taking on some of your administrative and organisational workload makes for a more productive day but, it also means your focus is free to be directed towards areas that demand your input and vision. This freedom means you are a more flexible entrepreneur overall.
