Sarah Howson is a former career assistant with over twenty years of c-suite level experience. Sarah has a passion for building relationships and connecting assistants.
Sarah and I chat about her career journey, navigating life challenges while at work, red flags in the recruitment process, networking as an assistant, tips for updating your resume, and stepping out of your comfort zone.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

CONNECT WITH SARAH
Sarah Howson is a former Career Assistant with over twenty years of C Suite level experience. She began her career journey straight from university assisting the CEO of a small start-up semiconductor company, before moving to a FTSE250 international oil and gas support services company, where she supported both the CEO and the CFO.
Sarah’s passion for building relationships, connecting Assistants and bringing together a much-needed community saw the creation of a thriving professional network for Assistants in her local area (Bucks, Berks and Oxon PA Network). Being a ‘people’ person as well as her extensive EA experience is a great foundation for launching Strategic PA Recruitment, a boutique headhunting agency along with her business partner in 2020.
When Sarah’s not organizing events, mentoring, networking or actively championing the PA industry, she enjoys spending time with her two gorgeous boys (7 and 4, both IVF), socializing with friends and loves to spend her time outdoors!
