Sometimes there is just too much work...Onsite Personal Assistance or Administration in Christchurch or Online Anywhere
Have you ever heard of a Virtual Assistant?
A Virtual Assistant is an independent self employed professional offering services either onsite or online to businesses. With new technology it is possible to help with all things marketing, communications, website design and administration remotely, but I am also available on site, in your office, in Christchurch.
I am an alternative to a temp you hire from a recruitment agency. I have my office set up at home to assist businesses with their administration, marketing or digital marketing tasks. I can also come into your office and help when one of your staff members is away.
I am available to help for short-term or long-term temping positions in Christchurch or remotely, online, anywhere. I am just an email, a phone call or a Skype conversation away.
I am available locally to help you during times of immense pressure due to staff illness, shortage or holidays. I can step in when your staff member is on maternity leave, in hospital or on an overseas trip. I learn very quickly and am experienced in most office positions, so can “hit the road running” to keep your administration office running smoothly and without any interruptions.
Contract work without the responsibility to hire staff permanently, which gives you peace of mind and is affordable and efficient.
I am highly experienced in office work with intermediate to expert skills in the Microsoft Office Suite, Sharepoint and Social Media Community Management.
My hourly rate for administration services is $30 an hour and I am available assignments or project work. I can come into your office sporadically or regularly to help with typing, website updates, personal assistant services, etc. or can help your small business from my home office, if this is more convenient. There are no paid breaks nor holiday or sick pay for you to pay, which works out much more effective and efficient than having an employee.
I have mainly worked in positions that require high levels of confidentiality (e.g. the Office of the Auditor General/Audit New Zealand) and other government organisations that deal with sensitive information.
I have worked for
- Inland Revenue (in recurring assignments over the years),
- Waikato District Health Board,
- Canterbury District Health Board,
- Audit New Zealand,
- the University of Waikato,
- Livestock Improvements Inc,
- Waikato Regional Council (formerly Environment Waikato).
