Lunch and Learn with Lindsay – Issue 50: 10 things to be grateful for as a 21st century PA: Part 7

Welcome back to a continuation of the 10 things to be grateful for as a 21st century PA.  We are on the Seventh Thing (you can catch up on Previous Things here!).

The Seventh Thing :  Specialist Recruitment Agencies

At this point, it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge the challenges that some of you readers have faced with changes in employment and having to apply for a new position in COVID-times. I know it’s been hard and I hope my weekly #LunchNLearn’s, including this series, have gone some way to providing inspiration, motivation and positivity. 

What has been really refreshing to see (particularly over on LinkedIn) in the last few weeks are the number of posts that ARE becoming available for our profession.

And it’s fantastic that there are recruitment specialists who understand this profession and who want to get to know you and match you to the perfect role.   The recruitment specialist we work with does exactly that and we are proud to recommend Lily Shippen.  The team there are passionate about delivering the highest level of service. Read more about our partnership here and quote LILY/YEL when you make contact so they know you came through our referral. 

To all those applying for a new role I wish you every success!
