What to look for when recruiting a temp secretary

A secretary is often a vital part of a team, or aid to a senior manager. Therefore, it is almost always essential to review a number of CVs and interview a minimum of three before making a decision - even if you are just looking for a stand-in for a couple of weeks.

You will be able to gather some key facts from a resume, such as familiarity with Word, PowerPoint and perhaps Excel, and typing speed. There are no formal qualifications for secretaries, yet most will have good GCSEs in English and Maths. The CV will also provide an insight into their level of attention to detail and writing skills - be on the look out for any typos!

Also look carefully back through their work history as a guide - were the roles with people as a similar level to your own? Remember though, if they work as an interim, they will have had many jobs.

However, in today’s modern working office it will be just as important to judge their ability to handle people, manage effectively over the phone, maybe communicate via chat-style messaging systems, and work effectively with larger teams. A face to face interview will give you a good idea of the candidate’s inter-personal skills, and ability to handle people. You might think about asking them open questions such as “Talk about a time when you felt overwhelmed by the number of tasks you had, and how you dealt with them?”

You probably have a good idea of what you need a secretary to do for you. But to make things easy, we give you a job description to start from and a suggested budget. Typically secretaries will perform the following duties:

  • Effective diary management for the management team
  • Arranging meetings, organising events and scheduling conference calls
  • Taking minutes, setting agendas
  • Answering incoming calls in a professional manner, transferring them as necessary or taking accurate messages
  • Covering the reception desk when required
  • Assisting with ad-hoc administrative duties (e.g., stationery orders, courier bookings)

Typically, recruitment agencies will charge between £13.75 and £17.57 per hour for secretaries. This includes what the candidate is paid, their National Insurance and holiday payments, as well as the agency margin. Your budget should take into account the experience of the secretary and their working location. For example, expect to pay more in London, where the Living Wage is £10.55 per hour.
