I have spent the last ten years assisting and supporting the Board, Chairman, Chief Executive and directors of a large private organisation, and have become an experienced and high level Personal Assistant. Following a relocation, I am now working as a Virtual Assistant, undertaking similar projects and challenges to those which I handled on a day-to-day basis. I am a very motivated person and enjoy the challenge of a new project.
I am a highly competent Personal and Virtual Assistant. My remit of skills includes:
Event and meeting planning,
Creation of professional presentations,
Editing and proofreading,
Knowledge of Excel,
Client to customer representation,
Drafting of letters and responding to mail on behalf of the client,
Efficient and polite handling of redirected incoming calls and the prompt relaying of messages,
Excellent attention to detail.
I also undertake a range of personal 'lifestyle' tasks such as booking medical or dental appointments, organising tradesmen, arranging holidays, payment of bills, restaurant and ticket reservations, sourcing of gifts, etc., all of which take valuable time out of your day.
I have excellent written and oral English, also accurate grammar and spelling. Client confidentiality is very important to me, as also are honesty, efficiency and an open working relationship.
The above list is not exhaustive, as there are always the many additional tasks that don't find their way on to any list, being undertaken mainly on auto pilot. Please do ask if there is a project or task not mentioned on the list above and I will be happy to advise.
As a fully freelance professional, rather than seeking to supplement my income, I am able to provide a reliable service and the ability to turn all work around in a timely manner.
Area Covered: Remote working, but also in person in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire.
