What it covers:
Inevitably, the role of the EA has had to adapt in accordance with the changing business landscape. Only a select few EAs have found that their responsibilities have not hugely differed from their previous day-to-day duties, whilst most have had to diversify their skillset and scope in order to best support their executive(s), teams and business as a whole.
"I usually find the whole recruitment process to be really painful but it was far from it with Lily and Emma. Looking for an assistant who could also perform office management duties should have been a challenge but from start to finish it was handled professionally and efficiently. It was clear that time was taken to fully understand the brief, the package available (a bugbear of mine is being presented with candidates that are £10k more than what was specified) and the culture of the business. This meant that the shortlist of candidates were not only quality but all suitable for the role and the environment. Really excellent process and we've got a top-quality person as a result."
CEO of Financial Services firm
"The service provided by Lily and the team was fantastic, being both personable and professional throughout the whole process. I worked mainly with Emma who went to great lengths to understand all of the experience, skills and personal qualities we required from our candidates, as well as an understanding of our firm's culture. They have been very prompt with all communications and have worked well within tight time frames. Overall, it's been a pleasure working with Lily Shippen and I hope to do so again in future."
Director of IFA company
"I would definitely recommend Lily Shippen. My recruiter Emma was exceptional. I originally approached another reputable recruiter for my candidate search and they got my brief all wrong. Emma not only listened and understood the brief, she asked unique (read between the line) sort of questions to fully grasp the type of professional I was looking for. They also acted with urgency so I never felt concerned about what was going on in the background. A big thanks to Lily Shippen and Emma of course."
