HOW TO HIRE A PERSONAL ASSISTANT WITH TIGER RECRUITMENT
Once you’ve identified the need to hire a PA, reassess your line manager’s needs and check the job description to see if the brief has changed since the last time you recruited for this role. If you’re looking for a part-time personal assistant, have a clear idea of the number of hours per week you’ll need that person in post.
PA recruitment is different for every business, so we’ll meet you face-to-face, wherever possible, or by video, to understand your business and the requirements of the position, along with any special skills or experience.
Next, we write a bespoke job advert and publish it to appropriate online job boards. We also meticulously search our extensive database and personal networks to shortlist several high-calibre candidates with right skills and experience.
Tiger PAs are skills-tested, reference checked and assessed on their behavioural competencies and value alignment. This ensures new personal assistants are fully immersed and ready to start.
As part of the shortlisting process, we will consider their professional backgrounds alongside their character and values. You will also be fully informed and thoroughly briefed on every candidate before the interviews.
Throughout the interview process, we take care to receive comprehensive and constructive feedback from yourselves and our PAs. This plays an important role in helping the candidates’ professional development and contributes positively to your employer brand.
Once you’ve hired your PA, we maintain contact with you and the candidate throughout the probation period to make sure the onboarding process has run smoothly.
On average, permanent roles are filled within three weeks of briefing
What can a PA do for YOU?
The responsibilities of a PA role are extremely varied and will usually be tailored to the individual or business. Business PA responsibilities will depend on their level of seniority and support required for an individual or team but can include:
Creating detailed travel itineraries
Overseeing the creation of contracts, client packs, and other documents
Organise meetings and taking minutes
Depending on the role, a PA can also look after personal errands, arrange social events and process expenses where necessary.
Ultimately, a skilled PA is vital to any team. Alongside providing support, PAs are the first point of contact for anyone wanting to connect with a business leader, reducing pressure on their workload. Hybrid PAs might support leaders on both personal and business affairs while private PAs will be wholly looking after their principals’ personal matters.
The traditional PA role has evolved significantly in recent years – the position is more than just meeting coordination and touch-typing! From project management through to being a leader’s second-in-command, a great full- or part-time personal assistant is often degree-qualified and highly efficient.
We fill 95% of our same-day requirements within the hour and work with a number of experienced career temps for both short and long-term placements. Our agile and qualified team work efficiently with minimum fuss to ensure you receive immediate exceptional support for your organisation.
