Testimonials

Thank you for the wonderful work you did producing my father-in- laws memoirs. From our first meeting over coffee I knew you would be perfect. Thank you for taking the time to order and re- work his pages (and mastering his handwriting) and thank you too for sending through updates as you completed each notebook, I know the boys really enjoy getting each instalment to read. I know the memoirs will become a family treasure, thank you for helping create that

Clare Readman provides responsive and high quality administrative support which offers excellent value for money. Clare has quickly become a trusted and valued member of our team.

Rhidian Hughes - Chief Executive at Voluntary Organisations Disability Group

Clare has been helping me administer my small company for about 7 months. I was impressed by the professionalism demonstrated by her website, which turned out to be a good reflection of how professionally she works. She consistently grasps instructions and completes tasks more quickly than I expect, and her standards of work are high. She is very flexible about fitting in extra tasks when requested but is also straightforward and clear about what she can do and when. Having little experience of delegating to others, I am gradually finding that I can rely on Clare and can let go of the need to check everything. I look forward to continuing to work with her as my company grows.

Anna Sharman PhD - Cofactor Ltd, Editing, training and consultancy in scientific publishing

I have used Clare for around a year for updating my web pages, she is quick and gives her views as to whether they are good updates or whether her idea would be a better option. She is quick with updates being done most days on the same day and price wise she is very reasonable, Will always use her for updates etc.

We engaged Clare on a freelance contract to assist with our book-keeping, and have found her to be helpful, reliable, conscientious, flexible and responsive whether working with us in the office or remotely. She has good IT skills, and has picked up our systems very quickly, so has been an ideal solution for us.

Kris Thomas, Publisher, Sussex Local Magazine

I contacted Clare via a recommendation through Sussex Enterprise. We needed someone reliable, quick and accurate with a fair degree of initiative and aptitude. Clare quickly grasped what we needed and within a couple of days had completed the task to our complete satisfaction. Would absolutely use her again and highly recommend her.

Nigel Patrick, Director, Patrick Associates Ltd.

Clare's attention to detail and background in systems & administration has proved to be a valuable asset. She does a great job looking after all my tenders, contracts and invoicing; freeing me up to get on with developing new business.

John Akehurst, Partner, Cost Centre Services (Brighton).

We employed Clare to work with us on our ISO certification project which is an important initiative for the company. Her main tasks included producing policy and process documents, which she managed in a most professional and efficient manner.

Kate, Waterscan (Chichester).

I was in need of someone to help me sort out the never ending paperwork for my business. I met Clare and she took my accounts from me, sorted everything out and put them on a spread sheet. It was so easy to transfer everything onto my online tax return. Clare also gives good, practical advice about how to organise my paperwork in the interim. Clare is also very good value for money and completes the work in record time. Thanks for making that part of my life effortless Clare!!

Sharon Embley, Hairdresser

As a small business it is very easy to get trapped within the vicious circle of being too busy doing the daily business of answering the phone, replying to emails, dealing with enquiries and doing admin instead of getting things done. Our work requires high levels of concentration and focus and these interruptions seriously hamper our productivity and workflow.

Then we found Clare Readman.

We haven't needed to find extra room as Clare works remotely and as a pay as you go resource Clare represents great value. She helps us field calls, emails and enquiries and also helps us with administration and tasks that were just not getting done when they needed to be done.

This in turn has increased productivity, improved customer relations, enhanced customer perception, improved lead time and delivery rates and maximised our time to concentrate on getting things done and more importantly, actually running our business.

I would thoroughly recommend Clare Readman's administration services.

Rob Wassell
Managing Director
Buzz Solutions Limited

When a client came in with a bin bag full of his receipts and invoices for the year, I was so relieved to be able to hand it all over to Clare to be processed. Clare worked efficiently and accurately and returned everything to me neatly filed and cross referenced to a spreadsheet with the bank account reconciled to the penny. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Clare. She is friendly, cheerful and reliable

Heather Still, Owner: Still Accounting

Clare was recommended to me at short notice to assist with a very sensitive personnel matter within our business. On meeting her for the first time shortly before going into a staff meeting, I was immediately reassured by her calm and professional manner. Without knowing much about her background I briefed her on what was needed and not only did she deliver on every level, she exceeded my expectations with her speed and efficiency in delivering the finished product in an extremely timely manner. Clare recognised the sensitivities of the situation and went about it in a way that allowed me to concentrate solely on the matter at hand, making a 'stressful' situation much easier to handle. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others and we have since engaged her services, utilising her talents on other work, to move our business forward.
