About the Awards

The prestigious North West PA of the Year Awards seeks to celebrate PAs and EAs from the North West who exemplify hard work and dedication, and have made an impact on both their company and the wider business community.

Building on the continued success of the Support Professional of the Year Awards (2014) and the Manchester PA of the Year awards (2015 - 2017), the awards have expanded to encompass the whole North West in order to recognise the best talent across the region.

As the leading industry awards for PAs in the region, KPMG, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Pitman Training, Taylor Lynn Corporation Limited and Robert Walters are this year’s Awards Executive Committee, joining together to recognise the industry’s outstanding professionals. Manchester Evening News is exclusively supporting the North West PA of the Year Awards as media partner.
