London, as the capital, offers so many exciting opportunities to build a career. It’s a great place to live and work. But in a bustling city seemingly bursting with others more experienced or more skilled, how can you find office and PA jobs in London? The good news is that, whether you’re looking to change career, return to the workforce, or are a new graduate, there’s a place in London for you.
We understand that the scale of the London job market and the sense of competition can make it feel bewildering, but at Love Success we know the tricks and strategies to find the best positions. So, here are our top tips:
What job are you looking for?
There are a plethora of different office and PA jobs in London. PAs range from the junior level, working on a team for many executives, through to senior executive assistants for prestigious business leaders. Other office support roles include human resources, accounting and bookkeeping, marketing, facilities management, customer service and more.
If you aren’t sure which area of office support will best suit you, don’t fret. An easy way to gain experience in different roles and discover what you like to do is try out different temporary jobs in London. You can work in different roles for different employers. This will help you narrow down your decisions while beefing up your CV.
Stand out from the crowd
The reality is that candidate pools in London are big and you need to stand out from the crowd. It’s vital that you make it easy for potential employers to spot your potential. If you’re new to London and your niche then this is even more important.
An excellent strategy is to build new skills that you can showcase. Partly, you can do this doing temporary jobs, as described above. However, you can also proactively undertake free training covering in-demand skills. At Love Success, we give our candidates access to our training suite. Here you can gain certification for various software packages, assess your typing speed, or undertake different courses that will help you excel in your career.
Choose the right London recruitment agency
If you try to find a job in London using job boards, you’ll quickly find frustration and a hit to your self-confidence. Instead, find a London recruitment agency that doesn’t just offer free courses, like we do, but also works to understand and place individual candidates. Choose an agency that is specialised in office support and PA jobs in London. Not only will they have access to the best opportunities and employers, they can help support you on your career path.
At Love Success, we support those moving to London for work to find the first step in their new career. We ensure you build valuable experience and skills, and present the best opportunities. Our relationships with employers are outstanding, allowing us to bring you the right role at the right time.
