“Hannah has shown herself to be very competent at managing complex projects to demanding timescales.”

“I have no hesitation in recommending Hannah.”

“Hannah worked as Personal Assistant to myself and to the Chair of the Healthwatch Devon Board for a three year period between 2014 and 2017. This included routine administrative support, plus assistance with more complex projects, and carrying out the role of Company Secretary.

When Hannah joined Healthwatch, the organisation had been going for just one year, so systems and procedures were poorly developed. Hannah set up systems for timesheets, petty cash, Board papers and meetings, staff expenses, ordering of stationery and supplies etc. We acheived a very streamlined administrative support.

Hannah also took on some major developmental tasks, for example supporting the process through which Healthwatch became established as a fully fledged charity. This meant helping to sort out banking arrangements, VAT registration, liaison with the Charity Commission, etc. Hannah has shown herself to be very competent at managing complex projects to demanding timescales.

In Board meetings, Hannah is party to sensitive and confidential discussion, but is completely trustworthy. She has access to the Healthwatch banking details and debit card, and handles finances conscientiously and well. In her general work, she can act on her own initiative and comes up with good ideas for systems improvement.

I have no hesitation in recommending Hannah.”

“Hannah is immensely well organised and a true detail person. Her forward planning and meticulous attention to the important issues meant that I was very well supported at all times.

Hannah’s skills include management of multiple complex issues simultaneously, diary management – including negotiations with other people to make this work, excellent IT skills, telephone manner and good numeracy. All round excellent office based skills. Hannah supported and co-ordinated a number of key events sometimes with large numbers and took this in her stride.

Her most important gifts are her trustworthiness and commitment. When you leave a task with Hannah you know that it will be done and done well without having to check.”
