An initial consultation telephone call, video conference or in-person or meeting is free of charge.
I work on an hourly rate, billed in 15-minute segments, and time-sheets are provided for all work undertaken.
A one-off fee may be more appropriate depending on your requirements, based on estimation of time/effort.
We will explore the areas you seek support with, and the skills you are looking for. I will also discuss the pricing options and timescales, depending on the level of skill required, if the task is short or long term, and if we are looking at a project which requires a significant amount of work up front, or tasks which can be run with immediately.
Based on our initial conversation, I will draw up an agreement which details responsibilities, the schedule we will work to and the billing arrangement, so everything is clearly laid out, and send it to you in advance of work taking place for you to approve (a ‘statement of work’).
Confidentiality is the cornerstone of our working relationship – any risk to your confidential information is a risk to my reputation. To put your mind at rest, I provide an agreement to protect any personal or business information shared.
I work remotely, but also work with clients at home or at work. Onsite visits have a minimum charge of 2.5 hours.
