Meet the Knutsford Admin team
Knutsford Admin’s ethos is to deliver first class customer service. Each individual or business client has one main point of contact in the team, although working with our ‘house style’ means that we can all step into each other’s shoes as and when is required, to ensure continuity of service.
Excellent bookkeeping and IT knowledge,covering all of the Microsoft Office suite are central to Knutsford Admin’s skill set. Each team member though has their own forte and naturally we support each other.
Most important of all there are plenty of smiles in the Knutsford Admin office!
