Reference and Experience

From Southwest Business Services, November 2009….“TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERNIt is with great pleasure that I write to convey my confidence in recommending Miss Shona McQueen to any employer who may require the services of an excellent secretary.Shona has worked through Southwest’s Agency Department since 2002.  It was her preference to leave permanent employment and work in temporary assignments whilst developing her very professional art business.

Shona’s skills, commitment and loyalty have been very evident during the past seven years; she has undertaken a wide variety of assignments and thereby much expanded her skills.  Her services have been repeatedly requested by clients, all of whom have found her work to be of great value to them.  I have been indebted to Shona for her flexibility and willingness to fit into the many varying situations, often at short notice, and to tackle whatever each new assignment required.

Southwest Business Services closes at the end of the year, with my retirement.  I have every confidence that Shona will give the same excellent service to any future employer that she has given to my Agency.

Yours faithfully

Marion Aitken”
