What my customers have to say…
I've recently engaged Magnolia to type up a manuscript. Claire ensured she was clear on the task and timeline required, which was then executed with efficiency and accuracy. It was a pleasure to work with her, and she demonstrated the core skills you need from an assistant; excellent communication skills, highly organised and always professional. I will be returning to Magnolia again, and totally recommend this service.

Claire has been providing me with admin support for the last 6 months. I am very impressed with the quality of the work she has produced for me and I would not hesitate in recommending her to others who need help with the admin for their business.

Claire has been looking after my bookkeeping and admin for a year now. Covering monthly invoice/receipts to advertising and email correspondence. I cannot fault her at all. An awesome all-round service. Can’t recommend enough.
