Founded by Polly Hadden-Paton and Vicky Silverthorn, You Need A PA offers its clients a ‘pay as you go’ PA service.

Combining their wealth of knowledge, their years of experience, and their extensive list of contacts, Polly and Vicky have created a highly professional and bespoke service, which tends to each individual’s requests and needs.

Each client can rely on a designated PA to get the job done in an efficient, yet speedy way – over a morning, a day or on a more regular basis.

No contract. No commitment. No hassle. As and when you like.



Every booking is tailormade to suit the individual client and can range from the ordinary to the extraordinary! The aim is to de-stress and organise each client in an efficient and methodical way so they can create more time for themselves.

You Need a PA’s Little Black Book is full of reliable companies, fantastic services and reputable brands – meaning that we have a constant ‘go to’, whatever the request.

Our clients range from busy families with hectic schedules, to business men and women trying to find that extra hour in the day, even small start up companies needing organisational guidance.

We make it our business to know about the latest trends, products and services that we think you’ll love.


Thanks to Polly at You Need A PA for my weekly sort outs – life is now back in order!

I cannot recommend highly enough the world class team at You Need A PA. They are absolutely fantastic and I couldn't get by without their exceptional skill sets and ability to take on board all kinds of jobs - be they challenging vast ones, last minute small ones, or simply mind boggling complex ones! Not only are their PAs superb at the job, but they are also a really inspiring and friendly team of individuals: each of them enthusiastic, kind, proactive, supportive and simply wonderful to work with. I am ever thankful and so happy I discovered them.
