WHAT IS AN AUDIO SECRETARY?
An Audio Secretary’s role essentially lies in translating copy or audio tapes and accurately capturing the information so it can be used in company documentation. This will entail word processing, creating excel spreadsheets and filing and maintaining the company filing systems.
The Audio Secretary will be a skilled touch typist as they’ll often need to type at a standard talking speed. An Audio Secretary will usually be listening to a dictaphone designed to be transcribed, not to be confused with a transcriptionist who will typically listen to audio of someone speaking naturally rather than dictating.
RECRUITING A SUITABLE AUDIO SECRETARY
Audio Secretaries are commonly employed by professional services firms and the health sector. Obviously the experience of a medical audio typist will differ significantly from that of a secretary with professional services experience, however the essential skill base is similar.
Our recruitment process in the hiring of audio secretaries will involve a face-to-face interview with our expert consultants in our London offices as well as a scrutinised assessment of their competency with MS office, typing speed and attention to detail. Ideally a strong touch typist will have a typing speed of at least 60WPM.
