"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."
"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!"
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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. "
"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."
At Oriel Partners, we understand that our candidates are our reputation and vital to our success, which is why we have made the registration process for PA and admin roles as friendly and as thorough as possible. We want to hear all about you, your motivations and past experiences which will enable us to provide you with the right permanent or temporary PA / Executive Assistant role moving forwards. Whether you are looking for the PA role of a lifetime or a couple of weeks temping during college breaks, we will listen, advise and place you within some of the most exciting companies in London. We work within sectors such as finance, technology, management consultancy, executive search, property, creative, luxury and private households.
A high proportion of our PA and Executive Assistant candidates come directly through recommendation, however, if you do see a role advertised on one of the job boards please do apply via the app or apply through our job postings on our website. Please note that because we are a boutique PA and admin agency we cannot meet with everyone and we typically only meet candidates who we feel that we have a good chance of progressing straight to an interview or into a temporary assignment. The last thing we want to do is waste anyone’s time as we know how frustrating that can be.
Once you have sent us your CV one of our consultants will give you a quick call to find out a bit more about you and arrange a convenient time for you to come in and register. An email confirmation will then be sent out with clear directions and a registration/GDPR form attached for you to fill in before the meeting to save you time. Please remember to bring your passport as a form of ID and any relevant certificates. Any testing will be done remotely to make the recruitment process as seamless as possible.
The initial meeting will take approximately 30 minutes. Your experience and PA / Executive Assistant skills will be discussed, along with your aspirations and motivators for your next role. We love to listen and feel it is essential to get to know you and what makes you tick, so we can make sure that we get the fit and culture correct when matching you to new job opportunities. You will also be introduced to other members of the Oriel team who will go through any relevant job briefs with you before you leave. In addition, we will give you advice on your CV if we feel this will make you more marketable. We are not a 'salesy' agency and never push candidates, but we do like to think outside the box. If there are other opportunities that are less obvious but we think are right for you, we will tell you about them. If we feel that we are not the right London recruitment agency for you, we will be honest and point you in the right direction.
At this stage, you are now registered with us, but the process doesn't stop there. We hope to get you out on interview straight away but this does depend on your experience, job criteria and market conditions. During the journey, we are here to constantly support and continue to build up a strong relationship that will last for many years.View All Jobs
