The role of a Personal Assistant (PA) has changed enormously in the last 10 to 15 years. Eden Scott's Business Support and Legal Division has consultants who have recruited Secretaries, PAs and Executive Assistants for over 15 years - they have seen the role evolve and develop, but without becoming less busy!
While there continues to be many ‘traditional' PAs with a 1:1 role (managing diaries, writing correspondence, taking dictation and dealing with confidential matters for their boss), there are many more whose role has changed dramatically through developments in new technology, working practices and working environments.
The recruitment industry has completely evolved over the past 20 years.

Eden Scott recently had the pleasure of attending a masterclass, hosted by the talented team at the Alba Innovation Centre in Livingston.
