I also qualified as a BSI trained internal auditor. All work was highly confidential and to a highly professional standard.
I am now a part-time teacher of English as a Foreign Language at a private language school in Crete, and I also write. I recently completed my first teenage novel and am currently seeking a publisher's agent to represent me. In the meantime, I have started a second book. Since moving to Crete, I have also worked for a well-known property development company where I managed three sales offices, created and maintained a customer database and produced management information relating to the sales offices.
I offer writing, editing and proofreading services, as well as typing and data entry, and pride myself on high levels of accuracy and quality. I have extensive experience of MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint and am a proficient user of the internet, which is where most of the research for my writing is done.
