Here at SimkissGuy we are really excited to be sponsors of the PA of the Year category this year at the Natwest Women in Business Venus Awards. As office support recruitment specialists, we also know that there are many, many hard working PAs, EAs and Office Managers out there who tirelessly go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the smooth running of other peoples’ work life!

We have asked our three finalists to tell us a bit about themselves and here is the first of our finalists, Lucy Johnson from Eversheds.

Lucy is an experienced Personal Assistant at Eversheds LLP, she supports the Head of IT and the Head of Property & Facilities. Lucy has a background in managing complex and hectic business and social schedules, ensuring the Heads are properly briefed and prepared for every eventuality. Based in the Birmingham office but can often be found out and about running errands when required.

Prior to working for Eversheds, Lucy has been an experienced Personal Assistant and Office Manager. She supported the Managing Director and Operations Director at FleetMilne Property, a multi award winning Birmingham based estate agency, making sure the Directors were in the right place at the right time.

Away from the office Lucy is a keen networker, she attends Birmingham Future events and Gatekeepers Guild events which gives PAs and Secretaries the chance to network and sample the culinary delights of Birmingham.

Although Lucy is a country girl at heart, born and raised on her parents’ farm in Shropshire. She moved to Birmingham eight years ago and she really enjoys the bright lights and buzz of city life so much so that she now owns an apartment in the leafy suburb of Edgbaston.

The winner of PA of the Year will be announced Wednesday 26th November at the ICC.
