A Shorthand Secretary will usually support one or two key senior business executives in day to day operations and administrative duties. An instrumental member of the team, they assist with tasks ranging from complex travel and meeting coordination, to managing the archiving and filing systems in the office.
Tiger Recruitment favours shorthand secretaries who have attended secretarial college and have expert shorthand and audio typing skills. That being said, experience is of significant importance and a secretary’s background, references and character will be taken into equal consideration during the recruitment process.
The role of a Shorthand Secretary
A Shorthand Secretary differs from a traditional PA in their ability to transcribe, incredibly quickly, lengthy and complex dictation notes or meeting minutes. For a manager who requires detailed and accurate typing of key meetings, events, reports and voice memos, a Shorthand Secretary is invaluable.
