The typist/transcriptionist/construction surveying part of Virtuadmin, started her early working career at just 14-years-old. Determined to be independent from a young teenager, she got herself a Saturday job for a large national retailer at the time, selling shoes. That job was continued while she studied at college. Her academic studies included business, brushing up my touch typing skills, word processing, Information Technology, and secretarial tasks, over a 2-year period.
After successfully completing her studies over a two-year period, then initially started working as a cashier/administrator for a local 3-piece-suite retailer handling cash, organising deliveries and stock ordering directly from the manufacturers. This was all managed by her during her employment.
After a short period of time she progressed and was promoted into the full-time Customer Service role for a large Wine and Spirits distributor, giving her the training and confidence to go into a receptionist role for more experience and another string to her bow!
This position was for a large national construction company in one of their regional offices based in the East Midlands. Having quickly developed a passion for construction she made the decision to study for qualifications within the construction industry to progress her career further.
Having successfully completing her Higher National Diploma in Building Studies, the career of 5 years working within the Construction Industry, the last year and a half on-site. This has given her the knowledge of coordinating documents, reading construction drawings, how to perform take-offs, compiling Health & Safety/Operation & Maintenance Manuals for completed superstructures and hand-over to The Client.
After discovering that she arthritis at the age of 30, this made it increasingly difficult for her work on-site access, and disappointingly left the Construction Industry. However, despite this was fortunate enough to gain experience as a Medical Secretary. The job role included audio transcription of dictation by Consulting Psychiatrists Out Patient appointments. Unfortunately, this was a temporary role, although she is very appreciative of the audio medical transcription experience.
Having gained audio transcription experience that she did, she was able to secure a job as a transcriptionist where she had two weeks of official training, due to the sensitivity and confidential information contained in the audio tapes. The role was transcribing Asylum Seeker Appeals Decisions. The dictation was strong non-British accents and required a lot of attention to detail in what was being said. Another string to her transcribing bow!
As that was a temporary situation in the United Kingdom, at that time, the operation was eventually wound down and transcriptionists eventually had to find alternative employment. It was at this point she began working from home as a freelance transcriptionist as Virtuadmin.
