The services I am offering include writing or different kinds, research, desktop publishing, photography and general services.
I do my best to juggle a part-time job, bringing up my lively toddler and helping my visually impaired partner as needed but really want to try to get more involved in freelance work with a view to being able to give up my job and spend more quality time with my child, at the same time as being able to use my full range of skills and hopefully establishing my own business run from home one day.
I love to write, excel at editing and proofreading and relish research, all the while maintaining and extending my basic office skills and looking into more advanced study into destop publishing and photo manipulation software and techniques.
I want to work hard, feel motivated, give an excellent service and feel personally boosted by completing a job successfully- I hve spent too long feeling depressed adn demoralised and have decided it's time I "take charge of my destiny" rather than lettign things drift on slowly around me.
If selected, I promise to work quickly, efficiently and diligently, maintaining excellent lines of communication and always keeping to a deadline.
