Retainer Package

This is perfect if you need regular, ongoing admin support. 

You can retain my time in advance by paying upfront for the number of hours required at £35 per hour. The minimum retainer amount is 10 hours a month at £350 and can be set to a bespoke number of hours to suit your requirements. Clients on retainer packages are always prioritised over ad-hoc work.

Retainers last for one calendar month. I track the time used, and any unused hours will be lost after the month has passed. 

If you are close to exhausting your retainer hours, I’ll keep you updated, and you can purchase additional hours as required. 

Pay As You Go Support

If you need admin support on an ad-hoc basis, then a pay-as-you-go rate may be preferable. 

My time is charged at £35 per hour, and work is rounded to the nearest 15 minutes. A time report (using Toggl) can be provided if requested. 

Payment is requested by bank transfer within seven days of the invoice being issued, unless by prior agreement.

Project

Some tasks are better suited to a bespoke project rate to take in the full scope of your requirements. 

We will discuss your brief, following which I will issue a quotation detailing the project scope. If the project scope changes from what is agreed, the project pricing will need to be adjusted accordingly. 

I’ll keep you updated throughout the project and track my time using Toggl.

Projects are invoiced 50% upfront and 50% on completion.  

Transcription Rates

I offer transcription of audio files at £35 per hour, invoiced in arrears as it can be challenging to estimate in advance. Transcription will be intelligent verbatim unless otherwise agreed. I can transcribe both digital files and mini-cassette audio recordings. 

A practical note is that the industry standard is four hours of transcription time for one hour of clear audio. Transcription time can be impacted by multiple speakers, strong accents or background noise.

Payment is requested by bank transfer within seven days of the invoice being issued, unless by prior agreement.
