I retired from paid employment in 2011 with the NHS in Procurement. At first I wondered what I would do with my time but now I wonder where all my free time is! I volunteer with the local community-run shop, serving behind the counter and also dealing with the admin for the newspaper and magazine orders. I also volunteer with the local library, delivering books to an elderly housebound lady of 94! I write short stories mainly but am also trying to write a book. I play tennis, cycle and walk. My wife and I run a local board games session monthly and are members of a local U3A games group.
A personable and conscientious “portfolio careerist” with extensive experience of successfully providing exemplary levels of service to a wide cross section of clients within diverse cultural and business environments. Industries include event management, venues, charities, not for profit, heritage, tourism, management consultancy and TV networks.
As a versatile office admin person, my experience includes Invoicing, report writing, credit control, secretarial/ PA, proof-reading, reception, design forms, telephony etc.
Now older and needing change, I can garden, paint walls, pack cupboards, clean premises, walk your dogs etc. I do drive.
I am looking for all types of support, fix or repair jobs. I can work on any household or tech items, just ask. I have 20 years IT experience and 20 years business management experience and 30 years maintaining my 150 year old house and garden.
I live on the border of North Hertfordshire and South Cambridgeshire. I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and have been involved in community engagement and education all of my working life from the age of 19. I run my own business.
Happily married, retired from range of professions, soldier, physiotherapist, HR manager, lecturer and childminder. Now a part-time carer and advocate for man with autism and epilepsy. Just general household diy skills (not a tradesman). Looking to keep busy, enjoy outdoors and walking. Thank you.
