Ad hoc or Retainer Support
Ad hoc Tasking - PAYG
I charge an hourly rate of £35 per hour on a pay as you go contract. This is a completely flexible arrangement, with no ongoing commitments – you simply use my services as and when you need them. You will be invoiced at the end of the month and only charged for the actual amount of time I have spent working for you. I use time-tracking software to ensure that you are billed accurately. Payment terms are within 14 days, after which a late payment charge will be applied.

Sofi has been my right hand woman for some time and I most warmly recommend her to anyone needing a highly efficient and totally reliable person to take care of administrative tasks. She has always been very well organised and I know I can always rely on her to deliver the very best documents from my often rather muddled instructions! She is somehow always able to help, sometimes at very short notice, with all the various very different tasks I give her. She continues to be invaluable to me in my professional life and is one of the most cheerful and energetic folk I know, always a delight to work with, an added bonus in a close colleague! I cannot imagine now what I would do without her. ~Sally Wassell, Author & Lecturer
Hiring Sofi as my executive assistant was one of the best decisions I've made. Sofi has massively helped with my workload, by managing my meetings, diary and liaising with email requests. A real pleasure to work with, Sofi is very friendly, personable and thoughtful. My fullest recommendations! ~Bruce Walker
Sofi has been helping me with my diary and schedule for a few months now and I am delighted with her services and enjoy working with her. I would not hesitate to recommend her to other busy people looking for some support. ~James McIlroy
I am so glad I started working with Sofi! What a relief! She is smart and efficient, responds quickly, and – what I appreciate most, perhaps – really thoughtful about what will work best for me. I recommend her absolutely. ~Dr Helen Wright, leading educator and educational advisor
Sofi is a professional and effective personal assistant and project manager. She can take on any task and has the skill and knowledge to get things done. Her communications skills and style are excellent. Sofi can present the right image to others and make a busy person’s life more organised and effective. ~Prof. Austin Tate FREng, FRSE
