Curlew Secretarial Solutions is a virtual assistant service based in North Cumbrian town of Brampton.  From our own fully equipped offices, we provide a professional and cost effective alternative to hiring your own secretary or administrative assistant.  By taking care of the day to day administration and secretarial tasks, we enable you to concentrate on the important aspects of your business and find more time to relax. As virtual assistants, much of our work is taken care of remotely via the internet, telephone, email, post or courier, but we can also meet local clients in person if you prefer.

We work with a wide range of clients from sole traders to large companies; no job is too big or too small, and we take care of anything from a one-off proofread to a regular contract.


Why are we different?

Getting to know you and your business

Four Award Logos

We are a National Award winning business who like to get to know you and your business well so we can understand the way you work; then we can offer a consistent and professional service, just the way you like it. We offer an overnight transcription service so you can send us your audio file before you go to bed and when you wake in the morning it is ready and waiting for you. We also specialise in Environmental Science and provide a virtual assistant service to university lecturers, renewable energy companies, students and other businesses in that field. We are fully conversant with the jargon that goes hand-in-hand with the subject area. Plus, we offer a 15% discount for students (see Student Services for further information)

Christmas Card Service

Great new designs for 2018

 

Christmas Card Service

It is great to send Christmas cards to your clients; it lets them know that you haven’t forgotten them and reminds them that you are there but, it takes up SO much time.  Time you don’t really have, time you want to be spending on your business or time you want to be spending with your loved ones.  So, why not use our Christmas Cards Service?  Let us hand-write and send your Christmas cards for you.  We have some fantastic cards on offer this year, choose your favourites from the shop below, send us your addresses and we will hand-write them and post them for you.  Once again this year we have teamed up with  Lauren’s Cows  (as seen on BBC’s Countryfile earlier this year) to offer you six Christmassy cow designs.  Now you have the option to choose a variety of her designs, opt for a box of standard Christmas cards or send us your own cards!

What is a Virtual Assistant?

Definition of a Virtual Assistant.

.

Befuzzled Chap

An independent contractor who provides administrative services to clients while operating outside of the client’s office. A Virtual Assistant usually works from their own fully equipped office, but they are able to access the necessary planning documents, such audio recordings, scanned notes and event specifications remotely. Virtual Assistants are usually freelance workers who  focus on the tasks that would normally be taken care of by a Secretary, PA or Administrator. With many ways to pay, this service can be used by anyone in need of a little extra help.
