Meet Suzanne Hunt. Suzanne was working as an Events Organiser and decided that she needed a change. Suzanne researched the job market well and decided that she should aim for a Senior PA or Executive PA Job. This is because the nature of the job is interesting and the jobs are stable and well paid.
Suzanne decided to take the Executive PA Diploma because it was the most comprehensive form of training for this type of career. This has been a great choice for her career and job search.
Executive PA Jobs
Upon completion of the course, she found an ideal PA Job for a Director of a Development Director within the prestigious Property Industry.
Understandably Suzanne is very proud of her achievements and she would like to share this with other people that are now in her position, prior to selecting this course.

How to find an Executive PA Job
What courses did you complete at Souters?
Executive PA Diploma Programme
What did you enjoy about the courses?
The examination of practical scenarios causes you to think deeply about solutions and outcomes.
In what ways do you feel that the course has benefited you?
I feel more confident, which is important to me. I can now think and act quickly on the spot.

Without the course, I would not have applied for such a senior role immediately as I would have lacked the confidence.

Yes I found a PA Job in London at a Property Company
In particular, how has the course benefited your career?
Improved career prospects with a far greater sense of confidence

Senior PA/EA in the creative industry
Would you consider taking another course to further your career and skill set?
I feel the Project Management Course for EAs is attractive to me.
