So, you want to be a Passionate PA?

Kate is now looking for people to take up the challenge of building their own business under The Passionate PA brand. She’ll give you a first class ‘how to’ operations manual and all the training, mentoring and support you need to be a fantastic Passionate PA. This is the opportunity to build a business around your lifestyle, choosing the clients you want to work with and doing the work you love with the support and guidance of an experienced team and a recognised (and dare we say, utterly beautiful) brand. 

In return for this franchise opportunity, Kate wants loyal, dedicated, enthusiastic people with unrivalled Positive Mental Attitude and exceptional experience, not to mention traditional PA skills as well as a few rather crazy ones thrown in for good measure. You’ll need to be honest with a great team mentality as this is NOT a usual franchise. There is no CEO in an ivory tower - if you want to build yourself a successful business that suits your lifestyle, Kate will hold your hand every step of the way. 

The Passionate PA offers you a network of colleagues but with the freedom to build a 'career' that suits you. There is no competition or “franchisee of the month” here as everyone has very different goals and objectives that Kate will understand and support.  

If you think you have what it takes to join such a team and be part of the next chapter in The Passionate PA story, send your CV, covering letter – and anything else you think relevant – to Kate Chastey. Be warned, she is a detailed perfectionist, you need to stand out from the crowd.

We look forward to hearing from you!


Please note - Appointments at the office are strictly by invitation only. As much as we’d all love to meet you, Kate is busy with client work and we’d hate you to have a wasted trip.

Meet Dominique

Dominique Bailhache is our first franchisee. She has travelled the world and worked as PA to one of the country’s leading chocolatier. At 29 she decided she wanted to follow a different path and found The Passionate PA...

“I love being a Passionate PA – it gives me the freedom to choose the clients I want to work with, whilst building a business under an established brand. The Passionate PA has a fantastic reputation and I love being able to walk into a networking meeting where people have heard of us! It makes setting up “on my own” easy.... Kate is a wonderful mentor and the support provided is outstanding. I can’t wait for the next year or so to see how the business develops.”
