I was looking for a new secretarial role when I came to work at the Milton Keynes office for Paul Maberly, who at the time was a general practice partner. I got on with Paul straight away and everyone else I met was very friendly too—it had a nice feel.
Over the years, my role has changed a lot. I’ve worked for many different partners, although always for Paul, and as his role has grown (he is now Senior and Managing Partner), mine has too.
There have been constant changes but I like that. Whilst I’m a PA, I am involved in office management and I deal with various queries.
It’s a nice office to work in and an environment where everyone is supportive, especially the partners. If you are considering a secretarial or admin role, it may be different to working in industry, for example, but there is a lot of opportunity here to make the role your own.
