Our secretarial services are split into several specialist areas. However, if you don’t see what you need, please do get in touch to see if we can help… because if we can’t, we will do our very best to find someone who can!

The areas we specialise in are:

Word services

By combining many years of experience across a wide range of industries with excellent typing, Word and Excel skills, our report typists can help turn academic, research and professional findings into attractive, clear documentation.

Excel services 

Whether for managing records, keeping track of finances or analysing data, our Excel operators can create spreadsheets, produce graphs or provide an accurate data input service. All of which can be highly useful on their own, or could be combined with our Word and PowerPoint services to create eye catching and informative reports and presentations. 

Antique Typewriter

Copy typing

Our fast, accurate copy typists can type your manuscript, your essay, or reproduce a PDF document or photos of text into Word (subject to copyright and document ownership of course!). We can type the text using your required font and layout, or use our easy to edit standard format.

Business Friend’s proofreading services are led by specialists in the field of academia. Our aim is to put the final touches to all your hard work, ensuring your final document reflects your findings in the format required and with no spelling or grammatical errors.
