Careers, Salaries & World of Work


EPAA UK has launched our first ever careers survey for Business Support Professionals. 

It is standard for any professional national body to take an in-depth look at this subject area and then champion in a way which reflects the final results.

Never have EAs and PAs been asked some of the questions we have included in this survey, however given the vast and rapid changes to the profession, we do feel this information is now needed.

It doesn’t matter if you are currently out or in work at the moment – all feedback is relevant regardless of your current status.

About the survey: 

Our survey is detailed and includes 39 questions, most of which will require an answer – although some are optional. It will take 10-15 minutes to complete and many of the questions are multiple choice/selection. There is also an opportunity to provide further commentary within most sections of the survey.

There are five parts to this comprehensive survey:

  • general information around education and current experience levels
  • recruitment processes and dealing with recruiters
  • interviews and general feedback on any recent experiences
  • salary survey and benefits, which is inclusive of temporary rates
  • looking to the future and your intentions to remain as a business support professional

All feedback is confidential and we do not take names down, unless you enter the prize draw.  Even then, your specific feedback would not be shared under your name within the survey results.  This is something that is really important to us at EPAA and to ensure you feel comfortable being as honest as possible.

The survey closes on Friday 21st December 2018.

A report with the full results will be made live in early 2019.   

It is vital that we obtain this feedback to be able to drive through any change that is needed.  As we always say to our members, we can do nothing without ‘stats and facts’.
