There’s just one week left to nominate an exceptional personal assistant for the Executive PA Magazine | Hays Awards 2013. If you want to recognise the contribution your PA makes by giving them a chance to win a luxury trip to Los Angeles, nominate them by Friday 23 August.

PAs, their bosses and colleagues can all nominate a PA to recognise their hard work and commitment to the profession, and the winners will be announced at an awards dinner in London in October.

What better way to thank your PA for their contribution than by giving them a chance to be named the UK’s best PA and win a luxury trip to LA?”

These awards will recognise the: PA of the Year, Newcomer of the Year, Best Organised Event (by a PA), Employer of the Year and Boss of the Year. For more information and to nominate yourself or another PA visit
