It's equally tough for those looking for work, as because vacancies are few and far between, companies are demanding more and more for their money. Those who are lucky enough to find work, are often faced with long working hours, a commute and little time to spend with their families.
Transcription City offers a solution to both parties; secretarial assistance for growing businesses at a fraction of the cost of hiring a full time employee, and much needed work for experienced professional secretaries who can then boast flexible hours with no commute.
Stephanie Sheppard, a virtual assistant at Transcription City stated, "After working as a medical secretary for five years I was made redundant and depressed. I eventually came across Transcription City and applied for a position as a transcriptionist and I can honestly say it's the best job I've ever had. I have the flexibility to work from my own home at hours that suit my lifestyle. Now that I am six months pregnant, I know that when I return to work, I will be able to earn money and still spend plenty of time with my new family."
And their clients are equally as positive; John Wood director at Oranwood Ltd, stated, "I had been swamped with work for weeks and was beginning to forget what by home looked like! In desperation I decided to look online to see if I could find a temp agency and that's when I came across Transcription City. They've helped me with urgent wrk many times since then, and always at a cost that it well within my budget."
Sam linnane, founder of transcription city added, "We provide highly experienced secretaries and transcriptionists with knowledge that is industry specific, meaning that every client is provided with a secretary that is perfectly matched to their needs. Our client also save money on hefty expenses such as office space, recruitment costs and holiday pay, as they are only billed for the hours worked. Our secretaries on the other hand get to enjoy the freedom organising their own work schedule, in an almost ressesion proof vocation"
