About Us

The Sussex PA Network was founded in July 2015 and is a professional networking and learning group for Personal Assistants (PAs), Executive Assistants (EAs), Office Managers, Admin Assistants and Virtual Assistants (VAs).

Esther and Emily started the group when they were unable to find a a network or support group in their area for EAs and PAs. They believe in raising the profile of the EA/PA role and to support each other in learning and development. They are both passionate about the PA/EA role and can see how much this role has changed dramatically over the last 10 to 15 years through developments in technology, working environments and working practices.

The aim of the group is to network with like minded individuals, share best practices and to learn and keep up to date with new ideas.

We were delighted to win the Best External PA Network of the Year 2019 at the prestigious Manchester PA Awards.
