Carole Meyrick - Freelance Secretary has Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance with Hiscox through PolicyBee

The Society of Virtual Assistants

Business Support for Busy People


The list below, which is by no means exhaustive, gives an example of some of the services I have been asked to provide over the years.


My hourly rate starts at £25 for basic traditional secretarial services.  There is no charge for an initial chat about how my skills and services could match your requirements. I am happy to quote for individual projects.  Please ask me for details.


As I am freelance and work from my fully equipped home office, you will simply be charged for the time spent on the work I do for you, be that an hour, a day, 10 hours a week, or 30 hours a month.  You save the cost of employment overheads such as PAYE, wages, equipment, insurance, holidays, sick leave and tea/coffee/loo breaks.  There is no VAT.  Time is recorded using appropriate software, and there is a minimum charge of one hour.

Although mainly based in my own office I can, in certain circumstances, provide a ‘bum on a seat’, subject to discussion.  Again, please ask me for details.

Next step

The most valuable asset a secretary or business support professional can have is the ability to think on their feet. For further information about what to expect when working with me please click here.  Please also look at my Happy Clients page to see what they have to say about my abilities.
