Sarah Howson (BBO PA Network & Strategic PA Recruitment)


I’m passionate about PEOPLE and building long-term relationships which is exactly why I launched Strategic PA Recruitment in 2019. As a former C Suite level Executive Assistant, I understand how fundamental the role of an EA is to a business.

Strategic PA Recruitment is a boutique agency based in Buckinghamshire specialising in Chief of Staff, Executive Assistant, Personal Assistant and Office Manager positions all over the Thames Valley/South East. We work across all business sectors matching high calibre experienced Personal and Executive Assistants to clients from Entrepreneurs to CEOs.

I love what I do and I’m proud of the company I’ve created. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional, personal service. If you’d like to get in touch, please contact me on


I am also the Founder and Director of Bucks, Berks & Oxon PA Network, an active professional network for Personal Assistants (PAs), Executive Assistants (EAs), Virtual Assistants (VAs), Administrators and Office Managers who live or work in Bucks, Berks or Oxon. The aim of the network is to connect like-minded business professionals enabling them to build relationships, learn and inspire one another. I love networking, bringing people together and enjoy championing the Business Support industry.


I am a former Executive Assistant with over twenty years’ of C Suite level experience. I began my working career straight from university assisting the CEO of a small start-up semiconductor company (30 employees) and then moved to a FTSE250 international oil and gas support services company (20,000 employees), where I supported both the CEO and the CFO. I have a BA Hons in Business Management & IT as well as being CIPD qualified.
