There are approximately 150 tasks per day, they require to be followed up upon and approximately 25 people are directly reporting to him. It’s your core responsibility to make sure employees to meet the MD are well scheduled on a daily basis.
  • The people that are supposed to do these tasks in time do not always do so; sometimes they are late, other times they have done the task poorly and other times they have not done them at all. It is your duty as the PA to ensure that the tasks are done. Regardless of the reasons as to why the tasks are not done or whose fault it is, you will be blamed.

  • This job is not only about screening calls and directing visitors, it is far more difficult and complex.
  •  The working hours are long and the pressure is tremendously high. It is not for the faint hearted

  •  Ensuring that the multitude of reports that the MD needs are given to him on time, whether from you or to be done by other staff.
  • Keeping a detailed ‘tab’ and being on top of all other department operations. The MD will always ask you questions about other departments, their problems, their performance; you must know. Also be up to date with operations of all departments
