Recruitment & Staffing

The Company

Bower Talent specialise in the recruitment and training of support staff at all levels. We believe our methods disrupt our industry and enable us to place individuals more effectively and ethically. Our bespoke testing and profiling is based around science, which when put alongside our face-to-face assessments of candidates means we are unrivalled in our ability to provide evidence, data and value to clients on the hires they make.

 

Our training business is built on the following key differentiators:

-We strongly believe that support staff are under-invested in and their training not considered properly

-We want to tackle the stereotype of ‘secretaries’, as well as the gender and diversity gap this perpetuates

-We want to highlight the rapidly changing role of support staff and guide businesses and individuals to prepare and equip themselves for   it

-We believe the role of EA has or can widely move into a more strategic position and this should therefore be deployed in a different way

-We want to deliver exciting, unprecedented workshops and have impact on teams that no other business can offer or achieve.

-We are data driven and strive to create and develop metrics to support our mission and our impact

 

The business is run by ex-PAs and we pride ourselves on helping people progress in their careers and working closely with clients to find the very best people for their businesses. We pride ourselves on continually improving the way our business works and the impact it has on the lives of others.

 

Role

We are hiring our first main trainer and this person would be pivotal in helping to establish and grow the training business. The role would report directly to the CSO and although you would be fully supported in learning about our business, the team and our processes, we want to find individuals who can quickly and autonomously manage their own workload. We need someone who wants to be part of the BOWER family, deeply understands and sympathises with our values and our mission and will work hard to help us to achieve it.

This is an exceptional opportunity to join and experience a fast-growing start-up.
