Marianne Tansley – Administration Support

marianne-tansley-vaLooking for an experienced, practical and efficient administrator who can use common sense? Here I am! With over 20 years’ of administration experience across a range of industries, I can assist you with any of your general admin needs, ranging from data entry and correspondence, to complex travel arrangements and writing grants and newsletter content. Having worked in both public and private sector offices, I’m able to adapt my working and writing styles to fit into different systems, use new terminology and jargon, and bring order wherever I go.

What can I bring to your company as an administrator? How about calm, a love of checklists and spreadsheets, and the ability to find a balance between warmth and professionalism to clients and stakeholders alike. I love to be able to find ways to work smarter, not harder, to achieve project outcomes and help co-workers. In the past, I’ve been heavily involved in policy and process reviews, the development of templates and styles to ensure a consistent and professional output, and to make it easier for everyone to be able to use the systems in place. I thrive on the variety of administration – one day it’s planning an event, the next day it’s data entry to input old manual files onto a new computer system, the day after it’s putting together a meeting pack for a Board meeting!

marianne-tansley-vacationPersonally? I’m a ‘there’s always a silver lining’ kind of person – no matter what the situation, I will find a reason to smile, if not laugh out loud. I see the fun in life and see no reason not to bring that into my work. I love to write – whether it’s a grant application, tender, brochure, newsletter or corporate email – being able to tell a story that will appeal to the audience and draw them in to whatever I’m working towards is a challenge I really enjoy. Having worked in research, engineering, not-for-profit, and accounting industries, I’ve learned that the best part of being an administrator is that you really can fit in anywhere, and get to see behind the scenes of some of the most incredible teams and businesses around!

When I’m not working, I love letting my dog take me for a run, throwing dinner parties and baking up a storm for my friends and family, and doing word and number puzzles.
