You may have seen the news last week that Sunderland footballer Jermain Defoe is searching for an experienced executive personal assistance and put a job advert up on Secs in the city (in case it’s no longer there a full copy of the advert is below).

As a personal assistant there is a lot in this job spec for the person to do including the following:

  • Organise all Jermain’s personal needs i.e. drycleaners, gardeners, house refurbishments, Sourcing interior designers and everyday tasks etc.
  • Regularly checking the home when Jermain is away, making sure all is in place for his return i.e. fridge is stocked and plants watered and house is clean.
  • Select and organise wardrobe with specific designers for special events/appearances i.e. Oswald boateng, Harrods, ZAP etc

Now a quick suggestion for whoever gets the new role you should install a NestCam (IOT device) so at least you can keep an eye on the home with an iPhone although it won’t help you restock the fridge or water the plants (yet!)

He then undertook a recruitment training apprenticeship with the legendary Tony Byrne and later worked alongside Ann Swain (now CEO of APSCo) at Learning Curve. Roy was then approached to set up the executive search division (100% retained basis) of Corporate Services Group, a £350million turnover plc. After successfully growing the business from 0 to 25 revenue producing consultants and a £2million profit within 2 years, he made the move to full time training and consultancy.
