In fact, I enjoy administration work so much that I passed my Master of Business Administration degree in 2011, then decided that the next move would be to start my own business.
Combining the two skill sets seems like a good idea: there will be many businesses - particularly small ones or new startups - who need an extra pair of hands to do secretarial work every now and then, without the expense of taking on an employee. They are the kinds of businesses which deserve good quality support, and I would like to help them out by working for them on a pay-as-you-go basis.
That said, I also started this new venture to put a bit of variety into my working life. I would be more than happy to help private individuals who would like a bit of support with typing a personal project - or even that latest novel.
Area Covered: Halesowen, Dudley, Oldbury, Bromsgrove and South Birmingham, (or UK-wide on a remote working basis).
