CMD Recruitment specialism: HR, PA & Secretarial

Most businesses, even small businesses, would be hard-pressed to operate without human resources, personal assistants and secretarial employees. These staff members are integral parts of the machine that keep your business running.

It stands to reason that these employees should be hardworking, dedicated and team players. CMD Recruitment can help you find such candidates.

HR candidates

Depending on your company's needs, you may or may not require an HR employee to hold a university degree. If you are seeking an HR officer, they should hold a CIPD, usually at level 3, 5 or 7, or a university degree. Regardless of their position, an HR employee should demonstrate empathy, excellent organisational and communication skills and a strong work ethic. 

The team at CMD Recruitment has extensive experience in finding and placing highly qualified candidates in HR positions for a wide variety of businesses.

PA candidates

Personal assistants or executive secretaries, commonly known as PAs, are essential to upper management. Whereas secretaries usually provide general administrative support, PAs work one-on-one with members of the senior staff to help them accomplish their daily tasks as efficiently as possible. The best PAs wear several different hats and must possess a variety of characteristics. They should be reliable, good listeners and communicators, extremely organised and masters of the art of multitasking.

Over the years, CMD has helped many companies find PAs with the experience and motivation needed for this crucial role.

Secretarial candidates

Secretaries are necessary for almost all companies to function smoothly. Like PAs, secretaries have multiple responsibilities but usually serve either a department or the business as a whole. Often, a secretary is quite literally the face of the office, greeting anyone who enters its doors. If they answer phones and reply to emails and other correspondence, then they also act as the company's voice. This is why it is imperative that secretaries have a high degree of professionalism, the ability to multitask, and exceptional communication and interpersonal skills.

CMD Recruitment can help you find secretarial candidates who have all of those characteristics and more.
