... a Little Gem of a Virtual Administrator

Meet your little gem

Hello there and thanks for popping by… it’s lovely to see you 😊

I’m Sharon and I love ADMIN!

You know, those never-ending tasks that YOU don’t have the…

Time, Resources, Knowledge or Desire to do!

Here’s a little info about me so that we can get to know each other.

I have over 30 years of experience working in Secretarial & Business Administration, HR and Information Services, so it is fair to say, I certainly know my stuff when it comes to all things admin and I love techie stuff too. 

Alongside those stuffy, business qualifications, I’m also a Mum to three boys.

Although they are grown and have flown the nest, bringing them up and managing a busy household certainly comes with its own unique set of skills!

I’ll provide you with a high quality, confidential and personalised service that is unique and tailored to your business.

Little Gem HQ is located in the beautiful county of Berkshire, UK.

Because I work virtually from my home office, it will save you all of the additional expense that usually comes with hiring an employee… tax, NI, holiday pay, desk, laptop… etc.

Working with me will give you the flexibility to hire me for the time that you need with no worry of massive overheads or a long term commitment.

I have a great sense of humour, love Chocolate 🍫, Sci-Fi 🌌 and Chinese food 🥡 .
