MIRROR WORKS: SEARCH FOR OUR BEST SECRETARY; Executary of the Yea AWARD 2008.

MOST bosses would tell you they'd struggle to get through the day without their secretary or personal assistant.

These often-overlooked, workers are vital to the smooth running of companies as their roles involve a lot more than "take a letter, Miss Jones".

We've teamed up with Office Angels, the leading secretarial recruitment agency, to search for the UK and Ireland's Executary of the Year. We want to recognise the hard graft secretaries and PAs put in each day.

The term executary was coined by Office Angels to recognise the shift over the years in secretarial duties, with many now taking on more management-focused roles. The award, now in its 11th year, is a way of showing gratitude for the longer hours, increased responsibility and commitment worked by secretaries and PAs.

If yours goes that extra mile to help your working life, you can express your thanks by nominating them for this award.

Not only will the winner take the prestigious title of Executary of the Year at a posh awards ceremony, they will also be given a two-night break at the Champneys Spa of their choice.

Last year's winner, Isabelle Avery, a PA to the group directors at Gadd Construct, says: "Winning this award has meant not just recognition for my achievements but overall recognition for the important role PAs play within an organisation."

The award is open to anybody in the UK and Ireland from any size company. Entrants may nominate themselves if they believe they've worked hard and deserve the title. But, even better, employers can nominate staff to show their gratitude.

Nominations need to be in by Friday, July 18. The winner of this year's Executary of the Year Award will be announced at a dinner at the smart Ivy restaurant in Central London in September.

Nominations can be submitted online at www.office-angels.com or call 020 7440 2126 for an entry form.
