EPAA supports and champions business support professionals, both within the UK and internationally.

Founded in 2016 to bring together a range of business support professionals and support them through a period of industry upheaval and transition, EPAA has now become the go-to organisation for EA/PA professionals in a diverse range of roles, all of whom provide invaluable support essential in the day-to-day running of any and every successful business.

EPAA are acutely aware of the fact that traditional business support roles are in a state of flux, as technological advancements and corporate restructuring changes the way that industry professionals work within the sector. EPAA are keen to ensure that their members – and the wider community – have the knowledge and technical skillset necessary to excel in their roles and remain competitive and relevant in an ever-changing marketplace.

The ideals of honesty, integrity and respect are central to everything that EPAA does; whether we are providing professional development or networking opportunities for members, or campaigning for greater equality and increased diversity within the industry, we are driven by a passion to deliver exceptional and relevant results with total transparency to help ensure the sustainability and longevity of the profession.

EPAA is a not-for-profit organisation and is keen to ensure that membership is both inclusive and accessible for every business support professional who wants to join. Our members enjoy exceptionally low membership fees (of less than £5 per month) and gain access to a range of benefits – including a continuing professional development programme, event discounts and a training programme delivered via a series of webinars – each of which has been carefully tailored to ensure that it is relevant and valuable to our diverse community of members.

The work of EPAA isn’t just for our members, but for the EA/PA professional community as a whole. EPAA want to help establish the sustainability and longevity of the profession in UK and international businesses and continue to help build a diverse and technologically proficient workforce that has the capacity to endure these turbulent times for the EA/PA profession.

The ‘Not Just a Girls Job’ is a campaign brought to you by EPAA UK, which aims to challenge common assumptions and perceptions of the EA/PA/Secretary role being a career just for women.
