The fact that you have been invited to interview is a sign that the selectors are already impressed with what you or your CV has to say. The next step is to show them that you are as good as your application has suggested.
Hang up your tweed suits, the world of accountancy is changing.
Accountants have traditionally been viewed as number crunchers that analyse and communicate historical financial data to their clients. A process driven role, accountants were regarded as the bookkeepers in a business, the sort of people who put blocks on marketing budgets and business investments to protect the bottom line.
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.
