Offering skills in a range of administrative areas, I have worked at the highest levels of government, supporting senior public figures as an executive PA and more recently, as a project manager within the wider public sector.
I am passionate about supporting efficiency, creativity and improved methods of working. I have over five years demonstrable experience working within transformation project roles and over ten years experience in supporting senior executives (and often more than one person), at the highest level.
Having lived and worked overseas (as well as the UK), I am comfortable with change and unpredictability and have the ability to adopt flexibility and adapt to my clients’ needs.
I have advanced knowledge of all MS Office programs, Project toolkits and methodologies (qualified in Lean Six Sigma and a Prince II Practitioner), Audio Typing 50wpm, PowerPoint presentations and have worked with a number of tailored systems implementations so am comfortable with most CRMs and in-house software.
