What should my title be?

Hello, EAs! I work for a small PE Consulting firm where I have been the EA to the CEO, CAO and MDs for 4 years (15 YOE).

I’m transitioning into a more ops/HR function developing our HR dept (we currently use a PEO) from scratch and will have 3 EAs reporting to me. I will be heavily involved in recruiting, benefits, payroll, 401K, training, mentoring, morale & culture & moderately involved in biz dev and marketing.

What would be an appropriate title for this role?

From a resume perspective Chief of Staff HR & Business Development would give you a leg up. However if this is for internal purposes, Director, would be appropriate your creating a leg of the business from the ground up the title should match

It was my initial thought but they would expect the COS to support the CEO and I am moving away from that.

I would say the more mobility-friendly “Operations Manager” so later you can ask for “Operations Director” and fully partner with HR or have an HR generalist report to you.

Ps. You are doing what I hope to one day do! Congratulations!

Great suggestions! And thank you. Moving to a very small, growing firm is proving to have been a good move.

I need to vent because I’m so annoyed with myself. I have been on a journey to become an employee of Amazon Care. I have been connecting with recruiters, sending out messages and literally trying to manifest this through meditation, action and hope. So I wrote a big wig from Amazon Care - I used a template and tweaked it to my personal style. Why did I forget to edit the name from the template! I spent 20 minutes rearranging and editing the message and STILL FORGOT TO CHECK THE NAME!
