Administrative Services

I offer a range of administrative services, including those detailed below.  The list is not exhaustive so please contact me to discuss and agree any aspect of your project before work commences.  If you decide you would like me to work with you, I will send you a copy of the draft brief, along with my terms and conditions.  You will need to agree to these in writing before I can proceed.  I am happy to provide you with a copy of my terms and conditions, along with a sample brief, before you commission any work.

I have over twenty years’ experience in the provision of administrative services including ten years managing government grants.

Grant bid writing

In my previous emplyoment with the Countryside Council for Wales and subsequently         Natural Resources Wales, I was involved – for over ten years – in the development, allocation, and delivery of funding programmes for external partners.  As well as being part of a funding organisation, I was vice-chairman of a partnership which successfully secured a £1,315,200 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. My skills and experience have led to an understanding as to what grant funders are looking for from their bids, and I can help you to be successful in securing the funding you are looking for.  I specialise in funding for           environmental projects but can provide support towards funding for any project.

Grant administration

I have been involved in the administration of grants, and the management of their administration, for over ten years. I am experienced in all aspects of grant management and          specialise in the (inevitably!) more ‘bureaucratic’ elements of grant management such as claims.  I can, however, undertake any aspect of their management so please contact me to discuss your needs.

ISO management

There are many good reasons to gain International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) certification.  These include strengthening management processes, reducing costs, and improving health and safety.  No matter what sector you are in, there is an ISO standard that can help your business grow.  ISO certification demonstrates your ability to deliver services or products consistently and efficiently, and ensure that everyone follows the same procedures.  They help businesses put in place best practice processes for managing things like complaints handling, grievances, system amendments, and much more.

I specialise in the management of ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) but can support you in the management of any of the ISO or British Standards (BS).  I can support you with any aspects of their management so please               contact me to discuss your needs.

Document management

Effective document management means you will be able to track, manage and store documents relating to your business.  I can help you to manage your documents in a simple way which will leave you free to get on with running and developing your business.

Pricing & payment terms

My hourly rate for administrative services is £20.  However, discounts may be available so please contact me to discuss further.

You will receive an invoice once work is complete and payment terms are thirty days.  A deposit may be required for larger pieces of work, or work which will take longer than one month.
