Office Manager/ Personal Assistant/ Executive Assistant

I have worked within Office Management for most of my professional career, and have a wealth of experience across this area. With a calm head and meticulous eye for detail, I work hard to ensure that all duties are carried out to the highest standards and within the allotted time frames.

In my past positions as an Office Manager and Personal Assistant at the Embassy, and more recently as an Event Coordinator for the Royal Asiatic Society, I provided solid and essential back up to key positions and projects. This proved to be a great opportunity to work as part of a team as well as independently, with a focus on delivering quality Office Management and administrative support on a continuous basis.

During my career, I have also dealt with reports, presentations and translations to the head of departments, identified and solved problems within databases, in addition to being responsible for the maintenance and updating of employee records.
