About the employer

We cater to the individual needs of our customers, for a complete secretarial and administration solution. For more than twenty years Type-IT have been helping people right across the business spectrum to concentrate on what they do best. By outsourcing their administration our clients have more time to concentrate on their business and their own specialist skills. At Type-IT we cater to the individual needs of our customers, offering everything from a complete secretarial and administration solution for your business to one-off support when you need it most. We can provide cover for staff holidays, sickness, and maternity leave or provide one-off, part time or a permanent full-time secretarial service rather than having the expense of employing your own secretary. Our staff have extensive experience in a variety of professions and industries including legal, medical, retail, education, sales and construction. With no staffing or office costs, no holiday or sickness worries, you simply pay for the services you need, when you need them, leaving you and your staff free to concentrate on what you do best.
