Private Personal Assistant – Carolyn

Butler For You - Household Staff Agency
Butler For You – Household Staff Agency

“I am an exceptionally self-motivated and driven Private PA that has consistently shown initiative and leadership abilities in order to pre-empt my principal’s needs and create peace of mind.  I have an extensive travel background, both for work and pleasure and I have been fortunate to live in several countries including the UK, Portugal, Japan and the US.  This appreciation for different cultures has allowed me to develop strong interpersonal communications skills with people from many diverse backgrounds.

I am adaptable, resourceful and calm when dealing with unpredictable and stressful situations and demonstrate flexibility in continuously changing environments.  Highly emotionally intelligent, well presented and spoken, discreet and loyal I work with the utmost respect for confidentiality.

Transferable skills:

I am highly organised and thrive on being busy, always paying attention to detail.  I think quickly on my feet and prioritise tasks that need immediate attention. I am calm in stressful situations resolving last minute changes and any problems in a clear and focused manner.

I have broadened my knowledge and skills by attending courses and recently completed a Leadership and Management course.  I also gained further leadership skills volunteering in Nepal – a role which required a high degree of initiative, problem solving skills and resourcefulness to identify areas of need and conceptualise and create new ideas and opportunities.”
