Oriel Partners is a boutique PA and administrative recruitment consultancy based in Central London. Their founders, Auria Heanley and Olivia Coughtrie, have more than 30 years of combined experience. Part of the reason for launching the business was to inspire others, and to this end they have also launched the Oriel Partners PA podcast. Olivia has interviewed several successful PAs across a variety of industry sectors. The guests provide current industry knowledge, explain how they got to where they are today, and discuss the skills required to be successful in their roles.

For example, one of their recent episodes was titled ‘Bear and Boundaries and Conference Calls – Working Remotely from Home with Kids’.
The Law Society has created this series of podcasts for people working in the city. Each month they discuss the latest hot topics affecting legal professionals working in London. This is another great podcast for Legal Secretaries and PAs who have an interest in expanding their legal knowledge and keeping up to date with changes or challenges in the sector.
This is a good one for the commute as the episodes are short and to the point. The Confident Admin podcast talks about everything from networking as an admin professional, to nice fragrances in the office.
