My name is Chenella Walker and I am the founder and co-director of The Hired Secretary Ltd. Our company was started back in January 2016 and became limited in April of the same year.
The motivation for starting this company was the desire to help those who struggle to get back into work. I remember the struggles I myself endured as a single parent for over 14 years and the fear of finding and keeping a job that worked around my desire to be there for my daughter growing up. I searched hard for opportunities to work from home but almost all such opportunities either involved paying out money or lead to nothing.
In 2015 I helped my brothers to start up a very successful plumbing and heating company. This business which is home based is now an accredited Which? Business. After experiencing such huge success with my family business, I realised that I could help others to work from home whilst assisting startups and small businesses to have the same success. Thus The Hired Secretary was born.
The Hired Secretary are reaching out to ask if you would help us to fund the next stage of our growth? This will ensure that we can continue to help even more people back into work. We need £25,000 but are aiming to raise at least £10,000 before January so that we can get sufficient office space.
We need more team leaders, these team leaders will now have to work onsite and no longer remotely as is currently the case so as to ensure that all our remote PA's and admin support receive the best assistance possible and also to ensure the best results for our clients.
Also needed is essential equipment which will ensure the smooth running of the office. A percentage of the funding will also be used on advertising for fresh new candidates as well as clients, and in ensuring higher quality staff training, an essential App will be created and also new business material such as presentation folders etc.
We did not take out any loans to start the company. From the very beginning, we have self-funded but now we are at a point where we need a little extra help to support our growth.
We are changing lives assisting individuals back into employment, and more importantly, flexible employment which fits around their individual circumstances.
Please support us!
Thank you so much for your help! It will not be wasted nor forgotten.
