So what makes me the VA for you?
I set up the business in 2012 after gathering over 30 years worth of admin expertise from a wide range of very busy office environments. I took voluntary redundancy from my last full time employment (with Lancashire County Council) in 2011, after 9 years managing and organising a very busy office that supported the business needs of over 30 professional education consultants. Supporting the government's National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies. Previously to that I was project administrator for a local college handling the admin for a European Social Funded training programme; before that I worked in the head offices for several retail and utility businesses since leaving school in 1982.
I’ve always had the initiative and drive to tackle whatever task landed in my in-tray and foresight to plan and prepare for what was due to arrive; often before my managers realised they needed it. I love being able to use my expertise and initiative to support my clients with AdminAnywhere and not being tied to those 'but we've always done it this way' senarios. I have the ability to think outside the box to develop better ways to get the job done, which will usually save you time and money in the long run.
I’ve gathered a vast amount of administrative experience in all those years and moved forward with the technological improvements too, enthusiastically adapting to better ways of working. I’m constantly discovering more software and tools, so the learning never stops. I have to say that even with the extensive administrative and technological developments I've learnt and adapted to throughout my career, I've learnt so much more since setting up AdminAnywhere too; helping me to expand my expertise and extend the admin services available to my AdminAnywhere clients.
I can handle your admin needs on a regular part time basis (anything from 1 hour per month upwards), or those ad-hoc, one-off jobs when they arise.
No job too small.
I work from my perfectly equipped home office on the Bolton/Bury border (Lancashire, UK). Connected to one of the fastest broadband providers on the market, with a VOIPfone connection, Skype, and smartphone of course; so I’m able to serve anyone in the UK remotely, utilising an array of on-line services that are available to me; to communicate, share and store. However, local clients can also benefit from my support on-site, or a meeting locally over coffee.
As I work from home, I now have the flexibility of fitting my day around my clients, the business workload and my home and family life, so I’m not tied to a standard 9-5 business day. I also embrace the luxury of avoiding valuable lost hours in the daily commute. I’m extremely confident in prioritising my work, so if you’ve got an urgent job, I can usually fit it in and have the capacity to work outside the standard working day to get a job completed if necessary. However, if there was a circumstance that a job could not be handled within your timescale I would discuss this with you immediately.

I charge my clients for the time it takes to complete their tasks at a rate that values the skills, knowledge and experience I have gained in my profession.
