My dream is to be creative, organised and helpful.

My partner in crime - my fantastic son. He has been the fire up my bum to get my dream business going and to make it successful. Being able to work and be a full-time mum is everything to me
My beautiful bezzie, Boo. She's the best entertainment around, with her flatulence and disregard for personal space. She puts the biggest smile on my face - especially after a rubbish day.
My grounded hubby shows me strength and confidence but also challenges me in my work and keeps me focused on being the best professional self I can be.

I walked into my admin career 20 years ago and though some people consider admin to be a drag, I found my calling in supporting people and loved the organisation, resourcefulness and structure that comes with it. Contradictory to this my outside hobby and natural talent was to be creative, so in 2010 I quite my office job and started my own wedding photography business, (Claire Kirkham Photography). It was successful and over the next 5 years I gained full understanding of what a business needs to run efficiently and the challenges they face (basically it was hard and mistakes were made).
Then in 2015 my life changed again and I became a mum.
Fast forward 3 years, I'm taking everything to the next level - combining my years of business admin with my natural design skills and my personal experience of owning a business. I am a highly accomplished Virtual Assistant and Business Owner, providing professional admin support to small businesses. My clients outsource time-consuming jobs to me, so they can focus on their core business and have a work / life balance.
My refined areas of expertise are:
Website design | Social media | Blog posts | Newsletters | Advertising campaigns | Marketing materials | Event organisation
I also cover Lead follow-up| Customer service | Invoicing | Email management
My reputation is for being organised and an excellent communicator. People work with me because I am qualified, resourceful, professional, friendly and reliable. This all serves me well, in order to provide the best level of quality support for my clients.
"Claire understood my requirements on the spot and she thrived on the challenge. I cannot recommend Claire enough. She takes on your tasks as if it were her own. Her previous skills and experiences are clear in the level of attention she will give you. I am looking forward to continuing working with her and know my website and business will be safe in her hands." Luke, DeWolf Bushcraft
