Our executive assistant hiring process

Initial consultation with the client

First and foremost, we’ll arrange a meeting with you to discuss your EA recruitment needs in detail. Perhaps you’re looking for a c-suite candidate with transferable skills or someone with niche sector experience. Either way, we’ll help you to define your requirements.

Initial consultation with the client

Finding potential executive assistants

Next, we’ll consult with our team and start to create a shortlist of potential candidates. We will have a couple of EAs from our network in mind already and we’ll always advertise the role in a way that will attract the best and most appropriate talent.

Finding potential executive assistants

Interviewing potential EAs

After meticulously assessing each candidate's application, we’ll invite the most qualified EAs to a face-to-face interview at our London office. We’ll tell them all about the role and get to know what they’re looking for to ensure synergy between candidate and client.

Interviewing potential EAs

Securing an EA for your business

As soon as you’ve found the right executive assistant for your company, we’ll get in touch with the candidate and secure a response before briefing them on next steps. We help make sure the onboarding process goes smoothly and can advise on salary, benefits, etc. Please enquire about hiring an EA by sending an email to auria@orielpartners.co.uk.

EA Recruitment FAQs

Here are the most common questions companies ask when finding the best recruitment agencies for executive assistants. For more information about our process, please please get in touch.

What sets Oriel Partners apart from other executive assistant recruitment agencies in London?

Unlike some other executive assistant recruitment agencies, we don't take a “salesy” approach to EA recruitment and value quality over quantity. As such, we’ll endeavor to only introduce you to candidates we genuinely think will excel in the role itself and the company more widely.

Do you recruit for temporary as well as permanent EA roles?

We recruit for temporary, contract and permanent executive assistant roles. We also recruit at different levels, and can help you fill a position for an interim period while we work together to find an excellent permanent candidate for the role.

I require an executive assistant immediately — how quickly can you find me one?

Owing to our extensive network of EAs, we should be able to locate suitable candidates and get them interviewing within the week. That said, we don’t play the “numbers game” and would never match you with candidates we didn’t think would be a good fit.

Which sectors do you recruit executive assistants for?

We work with high-end companies across a range of verticals, including finance and banking, luxury retail and media. We also have a successful track record recruiting experienced EAs for famous households and our service is discreet.
