Why hire me?
By delegating the minutiae and administrative tasks to me you can focus your time and energy where it belongs - growing your business
A successful career as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse has provided me with an eye for detail and exceptional multi-tasking skills and communication skills. I was comfortable liaising with and managing multiple stakeholders; including families, medical staff, allied health professionals and community health teams. Written and verbal communication was key to effective nursing care; in particular documentation and evaluation care provided along with keeping families and the medical team updated on an infant’s care.
Subsequent administration roles within Health & Safety provided me with the opportunity to transfer these skills in a private setting. I was also able to acquire new skills; including proofreading, document formatting, document editing, policy & procedure background research.Communication
I understand the importance of effective communication, will keep you informed with the progress of a project and will ask suitable questions to complete any task assigned. I am a Native English speaker.Eye for Details
As a Neonatal Intensive Care nurse it was imperative that I picked up on any early warning signs of deterioration of an infant’s condition. I was able to transfer my eye for detail to a brand new area of proofreading H&S documents and procedures before company release.Quick Learner
I successfully retrained after a career in Nursing. I am capable of learning new systems and procedures quickly. For example, when I joined Compac as their Global H&S Coordinator I was responsible for setting up their internal content and learning management systems. This involved learning new software and tools which I thoroughly enjoyed.Resourceful
I have always utilised every available resource to me in order to meet deadlines and produce exceptional work. This has often involved learning from other team members or external resources.Managing Expectations
I will let you know if I cannot do something or if it will take me longer than normal. I won't say I can do something if I cannot.
Amanda helped migrate Taggun's website content to WordPress. She was efficient and resourceful. There were a few difficult technical tasks in the project, but Amanda was able to work through them with minimal assistance. She would research and learn about the task to make progress; and even completed the project faster than was estimated. Great to have Amanda on the team! 
Amanda stepped in when my workload as a freelancer increased. I soon found out what a huge help she was - freeing me up to do other work. Thoroughly professional, she picked up what needed doing quickly and got the work done promptly and efficiently. She was flexible and adaptable and the results have been really impressive. Both my clients and I have been delighted. 
I had the privilege of having Amanda in my team for three years and would absolutely recommend her for any activity, task, career or as part of any team. Amanda takes on any new task with a smile, throwing in ideas to make it even better and with an absolute sense of efficiency and eagerness to make the experience great for everyone involved. Amanda will take initiative where she finds opportunity to improve things and never has to be asked twice. Her skills as a safety professional in her own right are absolutely understated and her passion for sustainability brings a good balance. Together Amanda and I were able to create a world class safety programme in three languages globally in just 12 months - no small task and one that is only achievable in a supportive, collaborative and consultative environment. Amanda is well liked by everyone who works with her yet she is also strong enough to put up her hand when things don't look right or there could be a better way to accomplish the same outcome. Amanda is an absolute asset to any team or organisation.
