The good news is yes they do, but it is increasingly rare to see a job advertised as a secretarial role without some embellishment (think Team Secretary). Type in PA Jobs London into a Google search engine and over 94 million results appear. Type Secretarial jobs London into Google’s search engine and there are less than 2 million search results. Could the relative rarity of secretarial roles actually mean the remuneration is greater?
In much the same way that candidates massage their CVs to suit a particular job, employers need to have a clear idea of what their top candidates will be expecting to see in a job offer. One of the first things to identify will be the necessary “job acceptance criteria”. Candidates who have multiple job offers on the table will have a very specific set of criteria that will determine whether or not they accept an offer, and the better you are at identifying those “deal-breakers” up front the better chance you have of securing the right candidate, according to top recruitment agencies in London.
You might reasonably ask “What is an elevator pitch when it’s at home?” Well as you probably guessed, there’s some good old Americanisation going on there, but if we were to call it a lift pitch it wouldn’t have quite the same impact would it?
So what are we talking about? Well in a nutshell the elevator pitch assumes that you get in the lift with your boss, or the boss of a company you’d love to work for, and you’ve got the time it takes to get to the top floor (say 30 secs to a minute) to sell yourself for that job you’re after.

Hiring temps from temp recruitment agencies in London has many advantages. For instance, the hiring process involved for such employees is relatively fast. As a result, companies can easily fill in the gaps from employee absences, employees going on maternity leave, fluctuating workloads and high seasonal demand. Hiring temps is also a good option if you are trying to find a replacement for a member of your staff who has not been replaced. Temps can easily transition to permanent status and can often be a more successful hire when the candidate has been tried and tested in the role instead of selected from an interview.
Times are changing and it seems that some recruitment selection processes used are often very outdated, which means that some of the most enthusiastic and best qualified candidates slip through the net; this is often because they cannot relate to the outdated way that the interview is conducted. There is a bright future for all those, who have a modern mind and with it comes the abolishment of guilt for the job seekers who spent all Christmas playing on their new games console. Deloitte have thrown themselves into the twenty-first century and have begun to interview and assess potential candidates by using gaming apps instead of the traditional and possibly outdated psychometric tests.
The market for top talent gets more and more competitive every day, which is forcing employers to do as much of the hard work as the candidate during the interview stage. You have to really sell your company and explain why they would want to work for you in order to hire and retain the best possible team and turn interviewees who are not suitable into PR agents for you. Below are four tips top recruitment agencies recommend to ensure that you do this successfully. What is your company's culture? Cultural fit is very important to candidates when deciding which company to work for, so explain your company culture to the candidate and tell them what makes your company unique compared to others.
