Secretarial staff get 10% rise


Part-time secretarial staff have seen their pay improve by ten per cent in the last 12 months, according to

The current Credit Crunch has left employers reluctant to hire full-time staff and they have instead taken on temporary workers to keep their operations running.

"The work's there to be done and someone has to do it," said Nabila Sadiq, managing director of Joslin Rowe Temporaries.

"Firms are finding they need staff levels consistent with previous years and are turning to the temporary market to cover the shortfall."

Temporary job vacancies in the financial sector increased 46.2 per cent in February and both temporary and full-time workers in secretarial jobs have seen healthy pay rises.
