Oriel Partners


Fi, Candidate

"I recently applied for a position through Oriel Partners and found Auria to be very helpful and supportive throughout the process. Auria had a really good understanding of what her client was looking for and took time to ensure that there was a good fit on both sides. It was a pleasure working with her."

Operations Director, Holtby Turner Executive Search

"We have been very impressed with the candidates Oriel Partners have presented to us during our contract PA assignment, they were carefully selected and ‘spot on.’ Olivia has worked very hard to ensure great communication throughout the process and has always gone the extra mile offering valuable, pragmatic advice and a very professional service. I can’t recommend Oriel Partners more, they have exceeded expectations and have secured a candidate who we feel is a perfect company fit as well as fulfilling our remit with regards to skills and ability. They will be our first port of call when we next come to recruit for an administrative role."

Senior Operations Executive, Sutton PR

"Oriel Partners did a great job in helping us find a new EA on very short notice. Auria and Olivia came to our office to meet me and get a feel for the company, and I felt like they were very attentive to our needs and genuinely interested in finding us a candidate that suited the business. They’ve been flexible, helpful and we would certainly work with them again!"

Head of HR, GAN plc

"I recently used the services of Oliva at Oriel Partners in our search for an Office Manager/HR Assistant.  Olivia immediately came across as professional, personable, flexible, responsive and very easy to work with.  She seemed to immediately understand our requirements and took the time to visit our offices to gain an understanding of the environment and culture within the business. I was very impressed with the overall quality of all candidates; Olivia knew them all well and they were a good fit for our vacancy. I felt that it was a true partnership with Olivia where we were working together to find the perfect candidate. I would highly recommend Olivia and Oriel Partners."

Private Secretary, Duke and Duchess of Wellington

"Auria and Oriel Partners helped us fill a key role working for a UK peer. It was easy and enjoyable, with minimum fuss working with Auria. She really grasped the importance of personality, as well as skill, in finding the right person for us. I will definitely use Oriel for our future recruitment needs."

Emily B, Candidate

"I have recently placed a dream job in London, all thanks to the amazing work provided by Oriel Partners. Olivia is an amazing recruiter who is not only incredible at her job, an extremely professional and friendly person making the whole process of finding a new role so much easier. The whole process from start to finish was efficient and stress free, which I was worried about as still in employment whilst searching for my next job. I will be recommending to anyone who is looking for a new role and wants the process to be a positive experience."

Phoebe S, Candidate

"It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Olivia at Oriel during my job search. I felt like she really took the time to get a feel for what I was looking for and had a fantastic insight into how I could make best use of my skills and experience. The calibre of clients Olivia works with has been consistently brilliant and she has offered great pre and post interview support."

Amy E, Candidate

"I recently moved back to the UK from Zimbabwe in December 2018. Both, completely different environments when it comes to not only looking for a job but one that just fits. Within an hour of me showing interest in one role, I was contacted by Oriel Partners. They we're on the ball from the start! We met the following day for a meet and greet and I had an interview for the advertised job role, two days later. They took the time to get to know me, gauged as to what I was looking for and recommended roles they thought I fit best. The fear of job hunting in a new city was washed away. Thank you for your support Auria & Olivia. "

Niké O, Candidate

Jenna H, Candidate

"Oriel Partners is without a doubt the best recruitment agency in London! I was looking for a support role within a relaxed but professional company with a wonderful working environment and culture. Olivia was able to provide several interviews with brilliant companies that ticked all the boxes. Thank you so much for taking the time to really listen and understand what I was looking for. I know how much the recruitment process can leave people feeling doubtful, drained, upset and uncertain - well look no further than Oriel Partners - they know exactly what they are doing, and I trusted them during the entire process! Olivia really took the time to make me feel good about myself as I was lacking in confidence during my job search and interview process. This genuine and caring approach was such a big stand out with Oriel Partners. Thank you again."

Prior to introducing any private PA candidates to you we will have conducted a face to face interview with all the potential candidates. During the interview we take time to get to know the candidates personally, drilling down on their private household experience and finding out their long-term goals. The candidates are introduced to several of our senior consultants to discuss their personal motivations as well as their work history and the strong relationship we have with our candidates starts here. We also assess their skills and take up reference details at this stage. Many of our private household PAs come highly recommended to us.

Interviewing potential Household PAs


Once the interview stage has been completed we will steer you through the offer and contract phase, taking up references if requested and confirm the start date. If needed, we can also offer advice on salary and benefits and assist with the onboarding process.
