I am a language specialist (qualified teacher of French and German), with excellent administrative skills, project management and event coordination experience. I offer a flexible, professional service.
I have extensive knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook, and a typing speed of approximately 70wpm. I have vast experience of audio typing as well as copy typing. I have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. I am highly efficient and effective when working on my own initiative and am used to working under pressure and meeting deadlines. I have exceptional organisational skills and can successfully manage very demanding workloads. I am industrious, determined, professional, reliable and trustworthy.
I previously worked in central London as an Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive of a Non-Departmental Government Body working within the sport community. My duties there included all general secretarial and administrative tasks, project management and event coordination. In this role, I was in regular contact by telephone, email or in person with many Chief Executives and Government departments at senior levels, Board members and the general public. I always conducted myself in a courteous and professional manner, being approachable to internal and external colleagues, whilst managing complex - and often conflicting - priorities and ensuring deadlines were met effectively. I provided project management support for the CEO and her Executive Team, and managed the logistics for many internal and external events of various sizes and formats, from colleague consultation events to a strategy launch with a keynote speech from the Secretary of State. As EA to the Chief Executive I was often privy to very confidential information and always handled this discreetly.
