    At our London recruitment agency, we’re a fan of team-building events. They help us collaborate and learn about our strengths (and what we need to work on!)

  • How to Pass Probation at Your New Job

    Many of London’s recruitment agencies send new employees off with a cheery wave and a close of the door. However, we know that a recruitment agency can provide crucial support for you in the transition stage. This includes getting off on the right foot, making a good impression, and sailing safely through your probationary period. For those just starting an office support job in London, here we ...

  • What Graduate Job Opportunities Are There in 2020?

    Posted on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 by The Career GuideNo comments

    The Institute for Fiscal Studies has declared that now is ‘ a bad time to graduate ’. They previously revealed that the sectors most impacted by lockdown employ nearly a third of all workers under 25. So, it’s easy to feel that graduate prospects are bleak. We can’t escape the fact that it is harder for graduates to get their career moving during times of recession . Unfortunately, the same ...

  • How Are You Feeling about Returning to Work?

    Posted on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 by The Office Zen MasterNo comments

    Like many other office-based businesses, our office support and PA recruitment agency are still largely working from home. However, we’re also taking steps to return to our office as soon as we’re sure it’s safe and Covid-secure . We thought this would be a good time to ask how office staff are feeling about returning to office work in London. Back from furlough “I was furloughed early on in ...

  • Writing Your CV Using the STAR Method

    Posted on Monday, June 29, 2020 by The InterviewerNo comments

    At our London recruitment agency, we’re frequently contacted by candidates who just can’t get their CV down to two sides of A4. The problem is that neither we nor any other agency have the time to read any more than that. We’re big fans of the STAR method as a way of succinctly answer interview questions, and we’ve found that it’s very useful for writing CVs too. It’ll help you fit everything in, ...

  • How to Be a PA to Someone Who Hasn’t Had a PA Before

    Posted on Friday, June 26, 2020 by Top London PANo comments

    It’s often a big step for an executive to admit they need a PA. They know they would be more productive if they could hand over the administrative reins that take up so much of their time. Yet they don’t always feel comfortable doing so — or even know what a PA can bring to them. This is why at our PA recruitment agency, we suggest that employers who are new to having a PA advertise for a ...

  • Time-Consuming Admin Jobs Ideal for Outsourcing to a VA

    Posted on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 by The Office Zen MasterNo comments

    As a recruitment agency in the heart of London, we’re familiar with businesses using temporary workers to complete ad hoc admin tasks. For example, we may be called to find someone who can implement a new filing system or write up some time-specific reports. However, what many businesses don’t realise is that it’s also possible to outsource many of these tasks to a Virtual Assistant (VA) or ...

  • Why PA Jobs Can Be Done So Well Remotely

    Posted on Monday, June 22, 2020 by The Office Zen MasterNo comments

    The past few years have seen the rise of the Virtual Assistant. One simple reason why is that the role of the PA lends itself to remote working. As soon as lockdown came, our PA recruitment agency quickly offered a Virtual Support Service to our clients, helping them to find both permanent and temporary staff willing to work remotely. It’s popular, and it works. We’ll explain why. The nature of ...

  • Has Coronavirus Made the Homeworking Revolution a Reality?

    Posted on Friday, June 19, 2020 by The Career GuideNo comments

    Long before coronavirus forced us all into our homes, the working world was already feeling the ripples of change. We saw it at our PA recruitment agency, with increasing requests for us to fill remote working positions. Before the UK went into lockdown, half of all workers reported that they worked outside of their main office for 2.5 days a week or more. However, only 36% of them chose to work ...
