YouYou wows the crowd at office* 2011

Well, our stand has been packed away, the pink carpet has been rolled up and the office* show is over for another year.

We had an incredible time at the office* show last week, meeting PAs and Office Managers from all over the country and being able to show them the benefits of using YouYou within their company and for their own job search.

What struck us from the feedback from the people we met was that the YouYou idea was a real winner!

Companies were frustrated at the high cost of recruitment fees and loved the fact that they could have a short-list of candidates in such a short amount of time and for such a reasonable price! Jobseekers were amazed at how easy the site was to navigate and how simple the process was.

We were also very proud because we had so many compliments about the appearance and graphics on the site and industry experts were astounded that they were created by such a young talent as Oli Ingram.

By the end of the two days we were exhausted but so elated that we were able to launch our new website to the discerning office* show attendees. Thanks to everyone at office* who helped us and to all the people that visited our stand.

The first National PA Day 15th September 2011

Here at YouYou we love support staff and know how valuable they are to companies. Tomorrow is the launch of an annual National PA day which has been launched to celebrate the contribution PAs make to organisations throughout the UK.

With the slogan 'We make Britain's offices work', the day aims to highlight the increasing importance of the estimated 600,000 highly skilled PAs working in offices across the UK and to promote the profession to well-educated young people seeking an exciting and stimulating career.

Henrietta Barker, one of the founders of YouYou, was quoted

‘I think National PA Day is a fantastic idea. A day like this is so needed within our industry and a great way for PAs to get the recognition they deserve.
