NOT SHORT ON SKILL.

The Scottish secretarial / administration recruitment market is buoyant and getting better all the time, says Colette Hartie of The Resource Group.

Secretaries who find themselves in demand are up to speed with all the skills of the Microsoft Office package, including Word for Windows and Spreadsheet.

They are also experts with presentation software such as Excel and Powerpoint.

But a possibly unexpected requirement at the top end of the market is a demand for top secretaries to be long on shorthand skills.

It seems that no matter how hi-tech the office environment becomes, top managers still love to be able to say, "Take a letter, Miss Jones".
