What our clients say about PA London

"Elaine provides a service structured around an understanding of the client which means that she consistently delivers candidates with both the hard and soft skills required to fit the organisation. Thorough, personable and highly professional I would recommend her and her team to anyone."

Financial Director, Global Finance Company

"Elaine was recently commissioned to find a PA for our Group CEO & CFO, also providing support to the Chairman of our Group board. The shortlist of candidates provided by Elaine were a good selection of high calibre candidates. The candidates offered breadth of skills. PA London clearly know their market and nurture strong relationships with both candidates and clients. Elaine commits to meet each candidate, face to face. This is often spoken about by recruiters, however in my experience is less practiced. In Elaine’s case she knew her candidates well allowing her to act as advisor to us,rather than simply presenting seemingly suitable CVs. Her candid approach allowed the opportunity to assess the strengths and challenges presented by each candidate ourselves, and further narrow the shortlist down to 4 candidates, for our CEO and CFO to interview.

The field of candidates was strong, so much so that we ended up modifying our job requirements and recruiting two candidates!

As an ex recruiter myself I was keen to understand Elaine’s process. I found her model to be well thought out, with a clear rationale behind each step, working to a discrete timeline.

I have no hesitation in recommending PA London as a recruiting partner, in particular in recruiting PAs for the Executive suite."

Corporate HR Manager, Global Manufacturing (client details on request)

"Elaine is extremely professional and I completely trust her experience and knowledge. She has helped us on many occasions in the past and I would not hesitate to highly recommend her and her staff at PA London. Elaine is also very personable and it is always a pleasure to work with her."

EA to International Sports Personality

"I just wanted to write a quick note about (candidate). I have been really impressed with her on many levels. She is really efficient and comfortable asking questions - yet she never has to be told things twice. She appears to have got her head around everything that we do here quickly, she has helped herself by working extremely hard and often staying late. Plus she is always helpful, always smiling and seems to care about what we do here.

Good hire!"

DIRECTOR, EUROPE (MEDIA COMPANY)

"I felt PA London was the best choice for consultancy/search help and that you of the three people I saw understood most clearly what I was looking for. This has been proven right with the candidates you have put forward and I am delighted we have found such an excellent candidate."

CHIEF EXECUTIVE, MARINE STEWARDSHIP COUNCIL
