The majority of employers of executive assistants seek applicants with a good standard of basic education, although an increasing number are seeking candidates with higher level qualifications, such as diplomas in administration or degrees in areas such as business studies or management. Candidates with knowledge of foreign languages, business studies and ICT are highly sought after, as are those with experience of working in an office environment.

Vacancies for executive assistants are frequently advertised through specialist recruitment agencies and usually involve working standard office hours, Monday to Friday. While roles are almost always office-based, applicants must be willing to travel to attend business meetings and events.

Starting salaries for executive assistants are around £18,000 a year. Salaries are often higher for those working in larger companies.
