    A corporate experienced office support administrator and bookkeeper with MYOB, Xero, Excel, PowerPoint and Word experience as well as technical support in the Microsoft Office applications. Attention to detail, diligence and customer service are some of the strongest features of my work ethic. My working career spans 16 years with corporate companies and small businesses in office administration roles and bookkeeping. I have worked in corporate office environments in London and Sydney, Australia for 6 years supporting teams of various sizes. My skills range from letter writing, meeting minute taking and writing up, transcription and lengthy proposal and merger documentation. As a Personal Assistant to Partners of various departments in a range of companies I have an extensive range of office support skills as well as adaptability and flexibility. I have Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel spreadsheet experience as well as working in technical support for these applications for an International Legal firm. I then wanted to gain further skill set and studied bookkeeping and MYOB and have worked in that field for the last 10 years. Because most of this has been within small businesses I have also been able to work on various projects and maintain several key roles within office administration. These included compiling advertising media, creating brand imaging for one of the companies and dealing with customers via email, letter and over the phone. English is my first language, I love to read and good vocabulary and grammar is a point of importance for me. I am a diligent worker with an eye for detail. I am a perfectionist with my work and I understand that my work can reflect positively or negatively on a client's image. I take that position seriously and aim to achieve a positive result every time. Whilst a perfectionist, I understand the importance of a budget and aim to achieve the highest standard of work in the shortest amount of time. I have references and further details on my working career if you would like more information.
