Rebecca Bastin

Welcome

All round support for your business…

It is often the case that small businesses do not require or cannot afford someone in a full-time buying, administrative or bookkeeping role, however for most some support, even just a few hours a month can be invaluable, relieving stress and freeing up some time.

I love talking to and supporting people who have taken the plunge and are running their own business. It can be stressful and rewarding in equal measure! Whether you are fully established and struggling to keep on top of the paperwork side of things or are a new start up and want some help with setting up/organising your admin and bookkeeping procedures, I will get to know you and your business so that I can assist in the best way for you.

I am reliable, efficient and hardworking and will represent you and your business in a professional manner. I would be happy to help on a one off project or on an ongoing basis depending on your requirements.

I look forward to discussing your business with you.

Rebecca Bastin bookkeeping and secretarial support

About Me

My main background is as a buyer in the construction industry, where I spent 10 years working for two large Devon based firms. This is a role that requires being organised, working to deadlines, prioritising work load, paying close attention to detail and building and maintaining professional relationships with suppliers and clients alike.

In more recent years I have taken on administration and bookkeeping for family businesses, also in the construction industry. For small businesses the office role is very broad and has therefore given me a range of skills and experience that would suit any self-employed person or small business.

I fully understand the pressures and rewards that running your own business can bring and the various demands it has on your time. I will not judge how things have been done up to this point, but simply learn about your business and its requirements and assist where I am needed.

Testimonials…

“I have worked alongside Rebecca for 4 years in retail construction on a range projects with varying degrees of complexity. Rebecca was always extremely professional, detailed and her versatility and resourcefulness was exceptional in what was a pressurised environment. She always worked within tight timelines and her contract procurement and administration was excellent. I would recommend Rebecca to any business, construction or otherwise and would hope to work with her again in the future.”
