Now known as one of the top recruitment agencies for secretarial jobs in London, RMS Recruitment has never rested on its laurels since its inception in 2000. We aim to assist our clients in finding high-quality candidates swiftly and efficiently—and one way we do this is by ensuring they have access to all the information they need in making their recruitment decisions. So this August, we are launching a new website feature through our “For Clients” and “Contact Us” pages that gives our clients the option to send a temporary or permanent vacancy request as well as request more information sources such as a brochure, temp rates, newsletters, or business terms.

A job interview can be considered as the final wall that separates you from your dream job. While job interviews certainly put an emphasis on one’s on-the-spot intellect and tact, you can never rule out the advantages of looking your best. This holds true whether you are attending an interview at either a potential employer’s office or an initial interview at one of the more trusted recruitment agencies in the West End or elsewhere in London. To better understand this, you simply have to take note of how important a first impression is in all social interactions, including job interviews. In such a professional setting, your end goal is to subtly, but effectively, convey competence, neatness, professionalism, and attention to detail through your appearance. In addition, looking good can give you the confidence boost you need to answer any difficult questions interviewers may have lined up for you.

Many online job-posting boards have seen an increase in online applications submitted through mobile applications. This trend does not entirely come as a surprise. After all, staying connected through mobile devices has become more of a necessity these days rather than a mere diversion or idle inclination. Specific apps and websites enable people to shop, stay in touch, be productive, and even make their next career moves. Indeed, the job application process these days can be as easy as a few swipes on one’s mobile phone. Candidates, however, are not the only ones who benefit from mobile connectivity. Many agencies also recognise the benefits of utilising mobile apps for personal assistant or PA recruitment purposes.

There was good news for many workers in Chancellor George Osborn’s Budget speech in July. He announced that next year would be the debut of the new national living wage. Starting April 2016, workers aged 25 and above will be paid £7.20 per hour, which is up from the National Minimum Wage of £6.50 an hour for those 21 years old and above. The aim is to progressively raise the national living wage until it reaches £9 per hour in 2020. While this is good news for the workforce in the rest of the country, London’s minimum wage still beats it at £9.15 per hour. The problem is, competition in the London employment market is generally tough, making it difficult for many to land a job.

RMS Recruitment loves to celebrate weddings. In fact, we’ve celebrated two staff weddings just this summer. So before we proceed discussing holiday entitlement and weddings, we would first like to congratulate our very own Natasha Webb, now Mrs. Natasha Greely and Laura Hayhurst-France, now Mrs. Laura Lennard. If you’re looking for PA jobs in London and are soon to be married, just as Natasha and Laura did, it pays to learn how to negotiate your holiday entitlement as a part your benefits package. Throughout the EU, UK has one of the lowest holiday entitlements. Statutory holiday entitlement in UK is up to 28 days (5.6. weeks for a 5-day week), including Bank Holidays. According to a PR Newswire article, employers typically provide either 20 (minimum), 25, or 28 days annually, excluding Bank Holidays.
