An executive:
An assistant:
For 12 years, I’ve been working as a personal assistant for executives in media, fashion, art, and tech. I know how challenging - yet extremely rewarding - this job can be. I truly believe that an executive assistant is one of the most valuable assets for a business owner and something that you shouldn’t skimp on.

I like to call personal assistants life-hackers. For them, nothing is impossible: they’re fun, creative, proactive, and resourceful. And most importantly, they’re genuinely cool people with a unique mindset that’s based on curiosity and growth.
We’re always searching for people that have multi-industry experience and are skilled specialists and jacks-of-all-trades. My own career path reflects this, as it took me through Media Client service, Design, Marketing, Operations, and Recruiting. We do believe that each skill you gain throughout your career helps you develop both as an employee and an individual, and these are exactly the kinds of talents we’re looking for.

My ideal job is mostly about improvement and making someone's life just a little bit better. In our case, it's a win-win situation: entrepreneurs and business leaders can relax and focus on essential business decisions, and assistants can grow and improve their skills on a daily basis while providing exceptional support.

Alexa is the real MVP when it comes to finding top PAs.
She hit a grand slam when
she hooked me up with my virtual PA. She really took the time to understand my needs and nailed it with Andrea (my PA), who is a total game changer for my business.
Alexa was also on point with her communication, always available to answer any questions I had. I would recommend her agency
to anyone looking for a PA, yamm is the real deal!
We had several interviews with Irina and Alexandra before I met my now employer so they are very selective and attentive both to the candidates and the employer. They are not simply looking at skills and previous experience but also taking into consideration the cultural background and personal qualities to find the right fit for
the team which I appreciated
a lot. What always made me smile is their email signature - Tomm Yamm and Iri Yamm :)

I highly recommend Irina - she's a top-notch professional who's also incredibly kind, straightforward, and pays close attention to details. Thanks to the yamm team, I landed an amazing job that has truly changed my life. Their support and dedication, both professionally and personally, are simply outstanding. I can't thank them enough!
My professional life changed drastically after I met Alexa.
She recognized my skills and personality immediately away
and had the connections to put
me in touch with the appropriate people. Finding wonderful work is important, but so is finding a place where you feel comfortable, and thanks to yamm, I've found both.
I currently work for Kate, an amazing and brilliant businesswoman who has allowed me to develop within a great work team and put all of my skills to the test! Many thanks to yamm for such a wonderful match! And Alexa, thank you for your perseverance, patience, and faith in me.
Alexandra’s exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail are invaluable, and she always goes above and beyond to ensure everything is running smoothly. Her drive and initiative truly set her apart. She created
a comprehensive system for hiring both business and personal assistants. This system streamlined our hiring process and ensured that we had the support we needed to succeed.
