With over thirty years of combined experience in the business and recruitment management industries, RMS Recruitment has dealt with all kinds of requests from clients regarding recruitment. Some of our top candidates have ended up working as PAs for famous personalities, wealthy clients, and major organisations all over London. High-profile clients usually have specific demands and greater expectations, which is why the recruitment process must be stricter. With our experience and expertise, we excel at recruiting only the best candidates even for the most unusual PA jobs in London.
Whether we like it or not, recruitment companies are inundated with candidate CVs boasting increasingly inventive job titles. While the job itself may not have changed, in an effort to breathe new life into our job titles, Receptionists could become “Directors of First Impressions” and a new breed of Temp worker is known as an "On-Demand Executive”. The desire for an innovative job title has infiltrated all levels of seniority: the CEO of a well known outdoor adventure company genuinely signs off emails as “Chief Gorilla”!
Since middle and senior managers are the most likely to employ office jargon or “management speak", it seems inevitable that those in secretarial or PA jobs could be most exposed to this irritating habit.
We PA’s and secretaries do not want to be told to “get our ducks in a row”; we know we need to be organised and there’s no need to talk to us like 5 year olds at bath time. If you want to “touch base with us offline”, please just ask us to meet and talk (preferably over a coffee). “Reaching out to us” makes us roll our eyes and switch off; just tell us you have a problem with something we have done.
Do you think you have what it takes to get to the top? Forget about working your way up the ladder for the moment. Just try drawing an “E” on your forehead to find out whether you’re an office hawk or a bunny. Take a selfie and send it to us, and we will tell you what it reveals about you. You may also win a £20 John Lewis voucher if you have one of the best E-selfies!
Following a ruling last week in Australia that “unfriending” a work colleague on Facebook constituted work place bullying in the case of a Tasmanian estate agent, Rachael Roberts, we consider whether it is ever a good idea to have work colleagues as Facebook friends.
Receive a £100 John Lewis voucher when you apply for and are appointed to fill new PA jobs in London, through our new “RMS Recruitment – PA, Admin, Secretarial Jobs” app.
It’s common knowledge that educational success is one of the top considerations an employer makes before hiring a prospective employee. This practice has been supported by many individuals and companies across many industries. However, there are those who question its practicality. While education is undoubtedly important, others believe that the individual skill set and personality should take precedence over academic achievement.
Working as a personal assistant (PA) may be the opportunity that enables you to amass career experience and springboard yourself to higher corporate positions down the line. It can be even better when you’re assigned to be part of a major company’s senior staff. Securing such an opportunity is made easier by accessing job lists through a London PA recruitment agencies app like RMS Recruitment – PA and Admin Jobs.
Becoming pregnant is a life changing event for everyone concerned. For women in the secretarial profession, it also means new challenges such as being able to go on leave and having a job to return to when they’re ready. Being hired by an employer that’s considerate enough to allow you the leave you need at no risk to your job may be possible, with secretarial recruitment agencies in London like RMS Recruitment helping find that suitable fit.
How to ensure your PA job is Heaven, not Hell!
One day while crossing the street a PA was hit by a bus and killed. Her soul arrives in heaven whereupon she is met at the Pearly Gates by St Peter himself.
“Welcome to heaven” said St Peter. "Before you get settled in though, it seems we have a problem. Somehow we’ve managed to lose your records and so we’re not sure whether you should be up here or down there. I’ve had a word with the big man and he say’s that you can spend a day in hell, followed by a day in heaven, and then you can choose which one you’d like to stay in for the rest of eternity."
