Personal Assistant Jobs & Recruitment

Looking for your next Personal Assistant job or employee?

We've been helping New Zealand's Personal Assistants find jobs throughout Auckland and Wellington for more than 20 years. If you're a Personal Assistant superstar or a manager looking for one, we'd love to hear from you.

Entry requirements

Our clients often prefer candidates with at least two or three years of experience in a previous administrative, support or coordination-focused role for a Personal Assistant position. Managers may also expect to see a proven background in minute taking, diary management, arranging meetings and travel, and writing and formatting documents.

As a Personal Assistant will need to work closely with their direct report, personal attributes play an important role in hiring the right person. Personal Assistants should be able to relate to people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. They should also be friendly, approachable and discreet, and have good judgement and character.

Salary range

$50,000 - $75,000

What could you be doing?

A Personal Assistant will often provide clerical and administrative support for a senior business unit manager, such as a Finance Manager. You may be expected to do some or all the following:

  • Organising meetings, preparing agendas and taking minutes

  • Taking messages, answering queries and screening incoming telephone calls and visitors

  • Organising diaries, including booking in appointments and travel arrangements

  • Creating and filing letter and email correspondence and documents

  • Other ad-hoc administrative duties


Many Personal Assistances make long-term careers from personal support positions and some go on to an Executive Assistant position to provide support for an Executive-level leader or board member of a large organisation.
