Becoming a
Celebrity Personal Assistant

Becoming a Celebrity Personal Assistant will take you down a different path to that of a corporate Personal Assistant. A career as a Celebrity PA can earn you as much as £70,000 a year and introduce you to an exclusive, jet set lifestyle. Apart from that, you can expect to eat in the best restaurants, get VIP passes to the best clubs and events, visit film shoots, spend time backstage at concerts, and attend movie premieres.

A celebrity PA is expected to dress the part, so a good eye for style and fashion is a must. Celebrity PA's are expected to buy luxury goods on the boss' behalf, so good taste and an awareness of the arts, architecture, design, antiques and jewellery is a definite plus.

Confidentiality is paramount in any PA role and may be even more crucial when you are the confidante of an 'A list' celebrity, particularly as you may be with them 24/7. Confidence is also essential, as you can expect to work with 'A-list' actors, rock stars, professional athletes, wealthy families, best-selling authors and politicians.

Apart from organising the boss, the typical duties of a celebrity PA are as follows.

Knowing how to get hired as a celebrity personal assistant is a job in itself. The real challenge is obtaining the contact details of celebrities. Access to people who are part of the celebrity's network is one of the possible ways to get your foot in the door. A celebrity's network may consist of managers, agents, publicists, and lawyers.

In addition to employment agencies and advertisements, other opportunities to meet celebrities include networking, involvement with particular charities, and particular types of jobs that are likely to bring you into contact with celebrities. Eating, drinking and living in the right location will also increase your chances of meeting celebrities. If you are serious about becoming a Celebrity PA, you will find the FabJob Guide to Become a Celebrity Personal Assistant very useful and comprehensive.
