I run my own business, Gemstone Virtual Assistant Services, from my home. I provide a cost effective and efficient range of administrative, secretarial and web services to help businesses, non-profit making organisations and individuals. I began my career working as an Administrative Office for the Department for Work and Pensions where I worked first in statistics and then in Human Resources. After five years I moved on to work as a Legal Secretary in conveyancing and probate and as a Secretary for a firm of Chartered Surveyor which I did for four years. For the past six years I worked in the Property industry in Asset Management. Due to the variation of skills and experience I gained I became a Virtual Assistant this year and set up Gemstone Virtual Assistant Services.
