The conversation of the year

 

UK EA/PA profession

Where do we really go from here?

 

Join us for a highly important and relevant evening, discussing candidly and frankly the current positioning of the UK EA/PA profession and what the future is really going to look like.

 

Whilst the role has been through been an evolution period and will continue to do so, it has become clear that we are under

 

  • a challenging job market across many areas of the UK
  • careers have hit a plateau or stagnated entirely
  • many have found themselves being made redundant or being put at risk multiple times
  • a lack of must-have skills that are needed for the future
  • uncertainty over the future of the profession itself
  • learning and development opportunities – what is most important for you to focus and a good use of your time 
  • identity - are we administrative professionals or EA/PA professionals

 

We will address these concerns, as well as offer statistics and facts where we are able to, in addition to some strong steps you can take and resources that can be used to support you in the ongoing success of your career.  It is about staying relevant and fully employable, with an open mind to learning and opportunities to maximise the longevity of the PA/EA role.  

 

Victoria Darragh says, “There are some obvious concerns and challenges which need to be addressed by the profession and could impact the employability of Assistants going forward if they aren’t. We hope by being candid about this and speaking truthfully, no matter how difficult this will be to hear for some, that we are in affect building a much stronger profession for the future."

Adam Fidler says, “Today's EAs have a choice: they can either 'step up' and meet the requirements of today's commercial world, or they can continue to rest on their laurels and see themselves out of a job.  Sometimes, put nicely, EAs are their own worst enemies.  The reason they fail is because they fail to accept the key things happening in their role and sector.  It's all about staying relevant, and offering the type of support that today's Executives really want."
