"We set very high standards for our business, and are always slightly suspicious of outside contractors; we believe in the adage that if you want a job doing right, you'd best do it yourself. But we were wrong! Nicky did our work as well - or better - than we could have done it ourselves. This was a new experience, and we were thrilled and honoured to have her working with us for 2 years. In particular, her communication skill and style, especially with our valued customers, was outstanding. I have no hesitation in recommending Nicky to any prospective clients, and would hire her again in a heartbeat!"
"Nicola worked as my virtual PA 2013-2015 and we formed a great team! A trusted, reliable resource who managed to make my life more organised and scheduled. Thanks to Nicola, I could concentrate on my day job!"
"I am currently hiring Nicky on an on-going ad hoc basis as our company goes through busy periods. I would recommend her so many reasons. She is efficient, trustworthy, approachable and adaptable to the different needs of the company. She brings a variety of much needed skills to our business and doesn't just take the burden of admin (which she does do, very well) but also brings ideas. It can sometimes be an unknown quantity hiring remote workers, but I have complete confidence in Nicky and I am very comfortable and grateful that she deals with clients so professionally. "
"Nicola, has been virtual PA to myself and my senior management team for the past 6 months and I can safely say that she has completely transformed my working life. What is she good at? Where do I start? She anticipates issues before they arise, is incredibly diligent , a first class "first contact" for customers and other stakeholders and has top notch technical skills. Quite simply the best PA I have had the pleasure of working with."
"I have worked with Nicky for some time through her company The Remote PA as she came highly recommended as a top-flight Executive Assistant – she does not disappoint. She uses her extensive skills to support a mix of professional and personal needs, moving seamlessly between the two and is extremely comfortable and efficient in both worlds. Professionally she supports my business needs to do everything from standard PA work such as travel booking and diary management, through to undertaking research projects and organising events. Her work is always to the highest standard and she is diligent, effective and flexible to my own needs. I am a delighted and regular client now who turns to Nicky without hesitation every time I need help."
"Amazing..! Nicky virtually turned my life around. I honestly could not have coped without her, especially in our extremely busy peak season. Nicky provided full PA services to me and some of my senior Project Managers and on occasions helped me remotely manage my team. Her work was always highly organised, proficient and timely. My job is very demanding and I manage multiple departments in a very fast-paced environment, Nicky managed to streamline my workload, organise my emails and meetings, understand and monitor projects whilst also prioritising my workload. I would highly recommend Nicky. I shall be using her services again, as soon as the peak season approaches."
"Nicky is possibly the most organised person I have ever worked with. She is very bright and understands a request straightaway. She also has the intelligence to think laterally when needed and work out the best way to solve a problem. She gets to know an organisation so she can make intelligent choices that suit the business rather than a one size fits all response. She is great with software and quickly picks up different systems e.g. different CRMs, CMS, and various online solutions as well as having a full understanding of all the standard office software. Nicky is always a pleasure to wok with and she works quickly and efficiently. I can’t recommend her highly enough."
"Nicky is brilliant - as an exec assistant and / or project manager. She has the natural organisation skills and formal PPM qualifications / expertise required to keep complex pieces of work on track. She shows great insight and initiative to spot issues, risks and the need for action in a timely manner - meaning she's very often resolved things before you've spotted them. And she's a pleasure to work with; which also, of course, means that she's a great ambassador for her clients' organisations when / however she's representing them. Highly recommend."
"Nicky is a superb PA and she has made a significant impact on our business. She is bright, efficient, helpful and flexible. Everything we have asked Nicky to do has been completed on time and to a very high quality. I would not hesitate in recommending her."
"Nicola is an incredible can do person. As a small charity we were reluctant to take on a full time administration assistant, and through a recommendation we asked Nicola to undertake some time consuming tasks. Wow we've never looked back and its as though the most efficient person ever has joined our small charity. The team absolutely love her and her enthusiasm for everything we throw at her means we have a super reliable extra pair of hands to efficiently cut through the workload."
