My name is Mhairi and I live with my husband Pete, our two dogs (Ben & Posie) and our six hens in a lovely rural location between Edzell & Fettercairn.
For most of my life I worked in the recruitment industry in Aberdeen where I co-owned and managed an employment agency.
My remit was to ensure the business had all the systems and facilities in place to allow the business to run. Very much an operations role, this was very fulfilling and had plenty of variety on a day to day basis.
Reaching my early 40s I realised that I needed a change after having been in the same industry for 25 years so my business partner (who also had a similar need for change) and I sold the agency and decided to take some much needed time out.
For the last couple of years I have been involved in upcycling and restoring furniture and resale of vintage homewares which I’ve really loved doing.
More recently however I’ve found that I’ve been really keen to return to the business world but as I have so enjoyed the last two years of working with individuals and small businesses that I felt it was a perfect opportunity to join the two together.
I’ve set up Preston Professional Services primarily to help individuals and small/micro businesses to grow their business.
I offer a variety of services from basic admin to social media plans and implementation, marketing, PR, spreadsheet work, website development, in fact most things that small businesses need to do as part of growing their business but quite often don’t have time for.
Sometimes businesses just need an extra pair of hands to handle a specific task(s) but don’t have the need for someone on a long term or full time basis and this is where I can offer help. I work on a freelance basis and work for clients on as little as a 4 hour hire.
I can work at your location or remotely from my home.
