I have over 30 years’ experience as a confidential PA with excellent Office Management skills, presenting work of a high standard, with a positive attitude and flexible approach. This is verified in the testimonials below from current/ex-partners and ex-directors of McCabes/French Duncan whom I worked with over the years.
During the 11 years I worked with Andrina, I found her work to be of a consistently high standard. She is a competent PA with exceptional IT skills
Eileen Blackburn, Principal Edinburgh Partner, French Duncan
Andrina and I have worked together for more years than either of us care to remember. Over that period I saw her grow from a keen school leaver to a highly competent PA assisting a number of senior people in our organisation. In addition, she is a very able bookkeeper. She has all the technical skills required for both roles and a confident and positive manner. We were very sorry to lose her. I thoroughly recommend her in either role.
Barry Laurie, Tax Partner, French Duncan
Business practices are changing dramatically, which means that so are the requirements placed on a PA, probably at a faster rate.
It is not uncommon for 'input' to be discharged verbally - directly or via dictation software, by means of handwritten scribbles or using documents, spreadsheets or even slides. Over the years I have worked with her, Andrina has consistently demonstrated an ability to adapt and to learn in order to efficiently produce whatever output is asked of her.
Andrina is extremely personable and conscientious, she is reliable and is able to work solo or on a collegiate basis in a team, either remotely or face to face. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services.
Zane Hunter, Director, Private Clients, Scotland, Seven Investment Management
I have known Andrina since 1988 when she joined McCabes. She undertook many roles with the firm as she developed her skills.
Her final role working for me was as PA to managing partner with responsibility for dealing with IT support, training new staff on use of office IT, in addition to providing HR support.
She was very adaptable, quick to learn new skills and very capable with the office suite including complex documents.
She proved to be very discrete, great with clients and a great asset to the firm.
Jeffrey Meek – 3rd line – Managing Partner, Jeffrey A C Meek LLP
Andrina was my PA for 6 years and I have no hesitation in recommending her. She provided me with support in a range of areas, including in particular audio, and the typing of letters, reports and excel based statements. She has many fine attributes and I would particularly commend her for her accuracy, speed of delivery and organisational skills.
