    Where possible, London-based office support jobs are once again being done from the office. Whilst office support and PA jobs are some of the easiest to do from home, there’s now an effort to get people back into the office, at least for some of the time.

For PAs and office support workers in London, going the extra mile for your boss is important—you could argue it’s an essential part of the job.

    Posted on Friday, September 25, 2020 by The Career GuideNo comments

    The media will have you believe that jobs of any kind in London have dried up in the wake of pandemic, furlough, and lockdown.
