I need a person to find me a Superstar Personal Assistant.
That's right I only want you to find me a personal assistant by filtering down to the top 5 personal assistance that could do the tasks that I need done.
I don't want you to apply to be my personal assistant (unless you really are so amazing), but to help me find one. You will need to make them available to be interviewed by me personally after you have selected the top 5 ones.
You need to have interviewed them yourself and found them to be among the best personal assistants. You need to explain to me why they are so great, before I interview them via Skype myself.
Here are the details on the job itself:
I need a personal assistant that is super-organized, very systematic, honest and reliable, so that you can keep me organized.
To cut it short, I need you to help me progress on my projects by being very organized and systematic, ensuring that we are making consistent and efficient progress. It's a strong plus if you have project management skills as I will throw many tasks at you and you must be able to juggle a lot of things while hitting all deadlines. The output is expected to be of top quality and you need to be prepared to go back and redo the work until it is perfect, if required, so you need to have a positive attitude to get to perfection, happily taking feedback.
(Let me be clear on most tasks you will not be doing the technical work, but you will ensure the work gets done to a high standard based on my requirements or hire the right people to do the job.)
You must be available on Skype to talk. I estimate that we speak 30 minutes or less per day (excluding weekends). It's also possible that on some days we don't speak at all and only communicate by email. You will do most of your work while we are not in contact throughout the day/week.
Please tell me why you are the *superstar* personal assistant for me.
I am looking to pay a monthly salary, so you should negotiate the best rates for me.
Here's a document that outlines some sample tasks/actions (might not capture all, but just so that you can get a sense of what's involved): [url removed, login to view] and here's a list of very specific tasks with more details: [url removed, login to view] (again on each task there is more details available but those would be determined during our conference calls, so you need to be prepared the ask the right questions so you can do your job successfully and then take it from there on your own).
