The Sorting Office

A bit about me & my business. 

As The Sorting Office, set up in 2015, I provide support to small businesses and organisations. This includes the areas of Administration, Marketing and Social Media support, as well as all aspects of Events organisation and management. And most other things in between (just not bookkeeping)

For many years, I worked in the legal profession where I learnt useful and transferable skills, such as the importance of good communication, working to tight time schedules, as well as the importance of confidentiality and accuracy of work.

I'm lucky to work with a number of third sector organisations - both more locally in East Perthshire and Dundee & Angus, as well as further afield - providing a range of support services, to suit their individual needs.  My clients come from a variety of backgrounds, including enterprise support, tourism, and the arts – meaning that no two days are the same, which is great.


I love what I do! Not least because I have been lucky to work with and meet many amazing people who are running incredible small businesses or organisations, many of whom have become friends and colleagues. I’m also proud that much of my work has come from personal recommendations. 

​My approach is always professional, but also friendly and flexible. All tasks are approached with good humour and a "can do" attitude. I love to roll my sleeves up and get stuck into a challenge, even if it’s not the one I had first envisaged. If I feel that I really can't help you out with something I will say so - and will probably be able to put you in touch with someone who can.

​I work flexibly for clients, one-off or ongoing to suit needs and budgets. Because I am self-employed, this saves clients the hassle of dealing with the headaches which come with employing staff. I can work from my own office or travel - whatever suits.  

Get in touch to discuss further. Oh and very importantly - the kettle is always on! ​

I love:

Walking my dog, upcycling, art, indie music, old tools & machinery, reading, vintage fonts (can you tell?) Rusty old typewriters.
Gardening - it's my therapy. Currently    trying to re-learn how to knit EDIT: have given up) Oh, & tea.

 In business I am:

  • Reliable & professional

  • A fast learner

  • Sociable & adaptable

  • A social media lover

  • Creative & good at thinking outside the box

  • Good humoured (mostly)
