Last year, after many years in the Queensland Public Service, I took the leap to become a Virtual Assistant. Those years in the public service did set me up well with a wide range of administration skills, knowledge and experience – whatever admin assistance you need, I’m sure at some stage in my work life I’ve done it before – even if I haven’t, I’m confident I can figure out how to do it or provide advice on how to get it done.
I also have advanced skills in Word and Powerpoint, intermediate skills in Excel and I’ve used so many databases and systems, I can adapt to something new. My specialty is written communication (from years of proofreading and editing government correspondence, briefing notes and other documents).
Proofreading, editing and formatting of documents
Executive Support (eg. diary and inbox management, travel and meeting arrangements)
Experience with MailChimp and website updates.
