My secretarial background and the vast amount of clerical work involved in teaching has enabled me to gain vast experience of administrative work and office systems.  I have good interpersonal skills gained through many years experience of dealing with a wide variety of people - for example: young people, their parents, peers and outside organisations on a face to face basis, by telephone and by email. My written and oral communication skills are excellent.

I use industry standard software for all types of secretarial and admin tasks, and I am competent in the use of Social Media - Twitter and Facebook and use them as a valuable means of communication.  I am also able to write effective copy and news items and have helped my husband develop websites such as www.amblenorthumberland.co.uk by composing and editing copy and features and creating and running the @amblenorthland twitter account.
