The judges include Susie Barron-Stubley, Managing Director of Castalia, the coaching and training company, Anuszka Elland, last year's winner and Geoff Sims, Managing Director of Hays PA & Secretarial. The winner will enjoy a dream holiday abroad for two at a five star hotel, as well as the prestige of winning this highly regarded award.
Geoff Sims, Managing Director at Hays PA & Secretarial, comments: "As directors continue to battle with a challenging economy, it is the hard work PAs do behind the scenes that allows them to get on with their jobs. We are looking for a top PA who can demonstrate their dedication to their job with evidence of how their pro-active attitude has had a positive impact on the business. Managers might want to nominate their PA by way of thanks for their hard work during what has been a difficult year. I wish all of the applicants the best of luck."
