REC Office Professionals throws support behind launch of National PA Day

REC Office Professionals throws support behind launch of National PA Day 

REC’s Office Professionals, the REC’s sector group representing recruiters who place candidates into the office environment, has thrown its weight behind an annual day to celebrate Britain’s PAs – the unsung heroes of Britain’s offices.

Coinciding with the return of the Office* Show, the annual trade show aimed at EAs, PAs and office support personnel, the event’s organisers, Diversified Business Communications UK, have announced the launch of the day on September 15.

Commenting on the launch of National PA Day, Jo Edwards, the Chair of REC Office Professionals and MD of Tate said:

“The launch of a day dedicated to PAs and the wider office support worker is a truly welcome move.The role of the office worker has evolved greatly and is becoming increasingly specialised and rightly so office and business support personnel are critical to the effective running of any organisation: Office automation as well as an increasingly flat organisational structure have led secretaries, office managers and administrative support personnel to increasingly assume responsibilities once reserved for managerial and professional staff.”

She concluded:

“Office support personnel are, in essence, the back bone of the effective running of any organisation. The recruitment firms that make up REC Office Professionals are all advocates of the increasingly professionalised role of office support personnel and all fully support this initiative.”

Commenting on the endorsement, Ali Mead of Diversified Business Communications UK said:

“It’s quite extraordinary how much good PAs really do and we think it’s about time the broader world knows that PAs are some of the most important people in Britain’s offices – the people who make Britain’s offices work.”

“We are very encouraged by the endorsement of the REC’s Office Professionals Sector Group, as using a reputable recruitment firm to source the best talent is essential.”

The Office* Show will be taking place on September 15-16 at Earls Court.
