Supporting you behind the scenes so that you can do what you do best

About me

Louise_webfinal4

Hi, I’m Louise

I love being a virtual assistant, helping others to achieve fantastic things by freeing them up to do what they’re great at. I’ve always loved administration and looking after people. I’m a natural at organisation, planning and research and above all else, I love a challenge. Oh, and cake – so you can be assured there’ll be an endless supply in our meetings!

If you’re looking for a virtual assistant then you are looking for efficiency, reliability and discretion. You want someone who understands your work pressures and can help take your mind off those tasks that are weighing you down.

How I work

My preferred choice of working is with Google Docs, Sheets, Slides etc. (essentially Google’s answer to Microsoft Office). I like to work with these methods as they offer excellent collaboration. However, I am adaptable and happy to work with Microsoft 365.

I will work however you prefer to work. If you’d like to speak to me on the phone regularly to dictate, give tasks etc – fantastic. If you prefer to email me with a list of tasks – no problem. If Skype/Hangouts/WhatsApp is how you communicate 👍. Face to face meet ups at the office or cafes – perfect. I’m your assistant so let me work around you and your preferred method of communication. After all, I’m here to support you!

 

Rates

I offer retainer packages in order to make my services more cost effective. This ensures that you’ve secured my time for each month and helps you to budget accordingly. 

10 hours

£280

20 hours

£540

30 hours

£780

40 hours

£1000

If you would prefer not to pay in advance or do not require more than a few hours work, my PAYG service of £30 per hour may be more suitable for you. If you’d like me to work on a particular project, please contact me and I can quote accordingly.

For retainer packages and project work I ask for payment within the first 5 working days of the month in advance. For PAYG services, you will be invoiced at the end of each calendar month or on completion of my work. My payment terms are strictly 30 days. 

If you sign up to a retainer package and require additional hours, these will be charged at the relevant hourly rate. If these hours increase significantly I will move you across to the relevant retainer package and charge accordingly. I am happy to carry over 20% of unused hours each month. All other unused hours will be lost unless otherwise agreed.

All rates include an initial consultation and regular reviews.
