Hi, I'm Nicola the founder of Oxford PA. My business can help you with your admin/PA/concierge needs.
I have over 20 years experience in office administration, PA work, project management and office Health and Safety, working as a Business & Facilities Manager and Customer Services Manager overseeing the running of regional offices and community centres.
I have a great work ethic, I am very organised, reliable and conscientious. I love lists and figures and having everything in it's place.
I can help you become more efficient by taking on those time consuming admin tasks and PA duties or just helping share the load of general living these days, where work can be fast paced leaving you little down time.
I have worked closely with Nicola for several years now and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Nicola is extremely professional, very responsive and competent. She helps across a range of services in my business, including client liaison, meeting scheduling, and accounts / finance. Moreover, Nicola is very friendly and helpful, with a good sense of humour. Nicola has become an absolutely essential part of my business and working life, and I thoroughly recommend her. David Bateman, Pembroke Research August 2020
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Nicola.
When we first met I immediately connected with Nicola's personality and values, as a match to my own.
In Oct 018, for my business network groups, I enlisted the support of Nicola and felt the weight of admin lifted immediately. The support has truly been a life saver for me.
I feared the handover and letting go, but Nicola made this easy with her systemised approach and note taking. She quickly got to grips with my procedures including event bookings, new member set up, website amendment and communications.
Nicola's support is making my life easier as I can now focus my time more effectively and do more of what I really need to be doing.
I recommend a conversation to see how Nicola can help you also. Mike Foster, The Entrepreneurs Mentor | Exec Chair of Venturefest Oxford | Connector
I have worked with Nicola for over 20 years until recently retiring from a busy office in Oxford. Nicola managed the office, and is one of life’s organisers. If it needs sorting, Nicola will do it – indeed she is likely to have anticipated what’s required, and to have already done it. Whatever “it” may be: from planning an event, to getting people to pull together, to helping customers, to ordering, invoicing and keeping accounts, to managing premises and supplies, to keeping records and filing them properly (irrespective of whether you use new or old technology), to getting your health & safety requirements covered: Nicola is your person. She devours administration of any sort, from the routine (which you never have the time for), to arranging the catering for a royal visit. And it’s all done efficiently, always with a smile, a great sense of customer service, and of a job well done. David Truesdale MBE
I have a
portfolio career which means I can have a number of different projects on the
go at one time, multiple clients and sometimes competing priorities. Planning
ahead was being overtaken by catching up; filing was a big pile of paperwork in
my office. Work was beginning to encroach into my personal time, I was feeling
overwhelmed and getting myself in a muddle. I approached Nic to help me when I
realised that I had spread myself too thinly. Working with Nic has been great,
she has organised me, my diary and given me the space to develop my career. I
find her a great sounding board and my ideas are becoming a reality with her
keeping on top of what needs to be done. She has organised my diary, invoiced
people and is in the process of setting systems up to keep me on track. Everyone needs a Nic in their life! Helen Carter, Healthcare Advisor
