Your Business Online
Don't understand how to update your website or what certain things mean? This is a quick 1 hour session going through everything you have, or haven't got online for your business, and making use of free services. I will also spend time reviewing anything you have before hand, so none of the session time is wasted. £30
Is your business secure? Are you secure online? This 1 hour lesson goes through how to use and make the most of password vaults, and how to improve home and business tech security using free or low cost tools.
This is especially useful to businesses who have employees or volunteers, but have a lot of issues with who did what - good or bad. £30
Customer service - trade and small business
Running a small business, especially trade, and not able to handle customers? As a member of the public, i've experienced bad customer service, just by not hearing anything from the provider. Price on contact, as will be customised to you.
For the employed or un-employed, is your CV ready to go? I have witnessed small employers and companies review CV's and job applications, and also seen the ones they put straight in the bin. I will work directly with you to make a CV/Resume that wouldn't be thrown away without being read. £30 or if you are on un-employment benefit, £15.
Don't have any work experience or don't think you have any skills? Everyone has skills and experience of everyday life in different ways - I will work with you to get these down on paper.
Job Application form writing
Need a hand answering questions on a job application? Not sure what skills you have and or how to give your experience, if any? Similar to the above but focused on an application you have. Price on contact, as application lengths can vary.
