About us

  • SORTED was founded in 2004 by brother and sister team Annabel Moorsom and Ben Arnold.
  • We originally set up SORTED Life to provide a practical yet pampering solution to manage busy lives.
  • By 2006 we had developed a reputation within the industry as a source of professional and discreet PAs and began to place permanent staff through our Agency.
  • Requests from SORTED Life clients and PAs alike, lead us to develop the Private Staff arm of the business, sourcing household staff and applying our hight standards.
  • Our work developed globally and we provide our services internationally, with especially in the US, the UAE and Europe.
  • With our PA resources, we also source the perfect people for project work, such as relocations, event management or press junkets.

We are not the biggest, but we aim to be the best
