My name is Elaine Ross and I have worked as a Personal Assistant for over 16 years. I love what I do, and particularly enjoy organising events, social media planning and problem solving. I work remotely, picking up tasks to assist business owners from individuals who don’t want or can’t afford to employ a full time Assistant, to larger corporate companies that need someone who can help out when workloads peak or need interim support.
I’m extremely trustworthy and reliable and I understand the value of confidentiality. My clients work with me because I respect them, value their input and am an excellent communicator. They are delighted with how quickly I respond and how focused I am on getting the job done.
"Having had the pleasure to work with Elaine for many years I would thoroughly recommend her services and herself to any prospective clients. Fantastically organised is one thing, but cheery, communicative and friendly set her above. Always professional but also a great story teller, with a fantastic cheeky North East sense of humour. Truly a pleasure to work with, you hardly noticed she’s arranged everything to a tee whilst you’ve been having a chat!"
Nev Phillips, CTO at Symmetry Solutions Ltd
" I was supported by Elaine for two years when she worked as my Personal Assistant. I found her to be an extremely keen, committed and effective member of the team whose brief covered: diary management, travel arrangements and meeting preparation as well as the organisation for periodic team events. Of note, I found Elaine to be sensitive to all matters confidential, both commercial and other - something I greatly valued. Her approach was proactive and "can-do" whenever a problem arose. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Elaine."
Naomi Morris, Head of Finance at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust
"Elaine worked as my PA for several years and I really appreciated her organisation skills particularly in the areas of event planning, meeting scheduling, minutes, travel and diary management. She was a pleasure to work with – proactive and always delivered with a smile. "
Sara Grantham Managing Director at Hartley Grantham Limited
"Elaine worked for me as my PA for several years whilst I was Head of the CEO’s Office at O2. She was organised, efficient and always quick to respond. I particularly valued her support for diary, travel, presentations, projects and event management.”
Anthony Soothill Project Director, O2 UK
"I can highly recommend Elaine’s services, in particular her social media skills and Linked-in knowledge. She rewrote my Linked-in profile while I was looking to change roles, and as a result I showed up in numerous searches by serious recruiters and have secured a new position."
