Having trained as an audio typist and due to my commitment to self-development I have become a very competent user of Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, WordArt and Outlook.
Other word processing packages have included WordPerfect, WordStar and Phoenix Ontel. I have over 40 years experience in administration and secretarial positions within varied industry sectors.
Ultimately, my latter executive experience was as a PA at director level within the Scottish penal system which further enhanced my organisation and interpesonal skills.
In 2007 I became sel-employed as a digital transcriber which includes court proceedings, 1-2-1 intervies covering the financial sector, medical sector, social work, legal, arts and media. I also have experience in transcribing focus groups..
