How to hire an Executive Assistant
Once you've come to the decision that you are going to hire an EA, we will work with you to understand you and your unique requirements. This will ideally involve a video call or face-to-face meeting between you and one of our experienced consultants, where we will ask you questions to understand the working culture, required duties, salary and ideal experience for the role.
We can assist with writing an Executive Assistant job description for you and, once this is approved, we will go out to our extensive database and network to shortlist high-calibre candidates, presenting them to you with speed and accuracy.
Throughout the interview process, we will provide detailed feedback to all parties and will always be on hand to answer any questions that you may have during the EA recruitment process.
Once you've hired your EA, we will continue to maintain contact with you and the successful candidate, to ensure that the placement is as smooth and successful as possible. We can even help connect you to the best EA trainers in the industry.

The temporary recruitment process is as flexible as you need it to be.

We will work to your requirements and we take pride in ensuring that the process of hiring a temporary Executive Assistant is as smooth and stress-free as possible.
