Calling All Superstar Legal PAs

SecsintheCity is looking for exceptional Legal PAs, EAs and Office Managers to be nominated for the PA of the Year Awards 2020. Could you be a winner?

Now in its ninth consecutive year, the PA of the Year Awards has become an iconic celebration of the essential support that Personal and Executive Assistants provide to the companies and individuals for whom they work.

The awards are hosted by SecsintheCity, the UK’s only job board dedicated to PAs, EAs and other office support professionals. The nominations are open from now until 14 September, after which an esteemed judging panel faces the challenge of choosing a winner in each of the following categories:

  • PA of the Year
  • Legal PA of the Year
  • Office Manager of the Year


SecsintheCity Marketing Director and PA of the Year Awards judge Sarah EL-Doori highlights that the aim of the Awards “is to champion the profession and acknowledge the significant contributions that PAs and EAs make to the organisations they work for. This year especially, we know that many PAs, EAs and Office Managers have shown extraordinary commitment during this challenging time. If you work with a PA or Office Manager who deserves to be celebrated, we encourage you to nominate them.”

Why nominate someone for the PA of the Year Awards?

Winning one of these awards is the ultimate recognition of the hard work, effort and achievements of an office support professional. 2019 winner and PA at Michelin-starred restaurant business, The Social Company, Sarah Hodson described her award as “the ultimate career accolade.”

Shortlisted finalists and their bosses will be invited to a glamorous ceremony held at The Ivy in London on 5 November, where guests will enjoy complimentary drinks, delicious food and networking opportunities before the winners are announced. Joanne Wilson, the winner of last year’s Legal PA of the Year Award, described the ceremony as “the classiest event I have ever attended and a night I will never forget.”

So, what are you waiting for? If you know a Legal PA, EA or Office Manager worthy of celebration – or you think it’s about time you got the recognition you deserve – head to the SecsintheCity website to make your nomination today.
