Hello, my name is Hazel and over the last 10 years, I have enjoyed a varied career as an Executive Assistant, PA and Manager within a variety of start-ups and corporate companies. From supporting the CEO to heading up People Management and running my own small business, I truly understand how overwhelming it can be when you have too many plates spinning, particularly in the early stages of a venture.
Employing a full-time extra pair of hands can be a big step, not to mention a significant financial commitment and perhaps you only need help for a few hours a week! Finding the right person (at the right price) to help is a problem that so many of us have in business and in life... and that's where I come in.
Although working 70+ hour weeks can be worth the grind and reward, it doesn't always have to be that way! Having helped business owners and executives achieve more balance in their lives and avoid burn out, I believe that delegation is key to success both professionally and personally. By drawing on my own experience and skills, I aim to offer a cost-effective solution to help you put down some of those spinning plates.
I am so passionate about working with ambitious people and have found the most rewarding moments of my career in helping entrepreneurs get to where they want to go.
How I Work
For most of the year, I am based from my lovely home in Edinburgh, UK, but from time to time, you may find me working remotely as I travel with my husband and his job (but don't let that put you off, working on a different time zone does have its benefits - I work while you sleep!) I am extremely flexible and always work to suit your schedule, remotely or on-site should you need it.
I treat each client as an individual and should you choose to hire me, I will work closely with you to create a package that will suit you whilst remaining flexible to your changing needs and the growth of your company.
I pride myself on being extremely organised, professional, approachable and discreet. I know how important it is to work with a trusted assistant who executes tasks with a 'can do' attitude, and that is what I strive to provide to my clients.
