Read about what our clients think of our services.
Having worked with Claire for a number of years where she has acted in a direct PA capacity to myself, I find writing this testimonial very hard as I cannot describe in words how much of a positive difference Claire has made to my working life.
Claire is a diligent, motivated and highly competent personal assistant. Her attention to detail means that Claire can easily turn her hand from assisting on HR issues to marketing to drafting very polished power point presentations.
Her ability to second guess your needs and the effective use of her initiative means that she remains one step ahead of your needs. I cannot recommend Claire enough in a capacity as a full time PA or an interim basis.
As the Sales and Marketing Director of a £120M electrical business, it was vital for me to have an experienced and proactive PA to support me on a daily basis.
I personally recruited Claire and over the next 4 years, she provided me with full PA support and detailed commercial analysis which was vital in assisting me with day to day management of the national and international sales teams. This support allowed me to fully concentrate on delivering the strategy and results required for the business to grow.
The level of support was beyond that of anything I considered as a PA role and I trusted her to manage client hospitality (both within the UK and overseas), rebates and financial accruals, sales performance tracking and the creation of customer facing presentations.
As you’d expect the full range of administrative duties were of a very high standard and an understanding of HR allowed her to take an active role in recruitment and team HR. I believe Claire made a significant contribution to the companies outstanding growth during that time and personally allowed me the time and security to deliver the corporate plan.
Claire is more than an EA. From the first time I met Claire as a candidate searching for the right role, It was clear she has a business mind and a tenacity that can outshine many in her profession.
I know that Claire requires a challenge in her role at work, and as a result, this provides clients with an ambitious and self motivated achiever, who goes the extra miles to do the job and exceed expectations. Claire simply delivers to a high standard; and makes her job look easy!
On a personal note, Clare has a naturally confident and sunny disposition which motivates team members, yet is equally firm and reasonable when required. I have no hesitation recommending Claire as a professional in her field and I wish Claire all the luck she deserves!
I started working with Claire a year ago and have found her to be a tremendous asset to my business and personal life.
Claire recognised that I needed her to become an integral part of the team and as such she took time to fully understand the business, our brand and ethics. She is highly organised and professional and has a very personable manner – essential when dealing with our clients.
Claire also contributes some great ideas and energy and quickly became passionate about our business. In addition to the traditional PA role, Claire has the capability and flexibility to manage projects including social media and website updates. I trust her completely and in the time I have known her know consider her a friend. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
