How Our EA Recruitment Process Works

  • Initial consultation: the most successful EA recruitment process starts with a detailed meeting, ideally at your office, so we can understand the environment, role and, most importantly, who your executive assistant will support. We ask the right questions to understand the perfect profile for your EA role.
  • The process: we’ll talk you through our detailed EA hiring process, assist with your job description and, working towards your ideal start date, we’ll put together a detailed interview schedule
  • Following our consultation: we’ll get to work, discreetly marketing your EA role and speaking to our vast network of experienced EAs until we’re happy that our shortlisted EAs are the perfect fit for your role
  • Shortlist: we’ll interview the executive assistants that make our shortlist specifically for your role, ensuring they have the right skills for the position, before submitting their CVs and profiles to you
  • Interview process: we’ll set up and manage the interview process, including any video or face-to-face interviews, coordinating feedback both ways until you’ve found the perfect executive assistant
  • Manage the offer process: we’ll manage the offer process until a start date is confirmed with the successful candidate, supporting you with referencing and the onboarding of your new EA

What’s the difference between a personal assistant and an executive assistant?

A PA and an EA are both support roles with different scopes of responsibility. Both are responsible for their executives working at their most optimal level, assisting with various organisational tasks, such as managing schedules and expenses, arranging travel and meetings, managing inboxes and emails, and handling personal matters. An executive assistant also usually provides high-level business support to the C-Suite, such as managing complex tasks/projects and highly confidential information.
