Reducing Staff & Office Costs whilst adding hours to your day - from office to home!

RDS PA Services endeavours to meet all of our clients needs on a day to day basis. We are available to discuss whatever tasks you may request. Throughout RDS PA Services there is an extensive range of skill and experience in all kinds of secretarial, administrative, personal and executive sectors such as; payroll, finances, event planning, taking and making all kinds of bookings, research, marketing and sales, website creation, etc. We also never shy away from the more personal jobs which are sometimes required of us, such as general household errands. RDS PA Services always prides itself on being able to offer our extensive range of services whilst also making sure that everything is always completed to the highest of standards.

There's no need to worry about sick pay/pensions, or NI and tax contributions with us as you pay for what you get and all work is invoiced for! This paired with not having to pay for staff training or office costs proves to be a very cost effective way to get the job done.

With a secretarial assistant you can be sure to add a significant amount of order into your life, the ease this will bring you is worth its weight in gold. Taking and making phone calls as well as clearing up folder and email systems is just where the magic begins, we can also assist in helping you stay on top of your time, making sure your diaries are always up to date and synchronised so that you never double book or miss an important appointment again. Making stressful travel plans and bookings, as well as finding the best offer will also be a thing of the past! Or you may need something writing up? Whether this be a report, CV or typing up a novel – we can be on hand to make sure the job gets done properly - always ensuring we double proof read everything!
Administrative support can be beneficial to pretty much everyone, we can come to you or work remotely – saving you on office costs! All sorts of data input can be dealt with including wage input into payroll systems and dealing with timesheets to bookkeeping making sure all of your incomings and outgoings are clearly displayed bringing you ease when it comes to the end of the tax year especially. But it doesn’t end there we can also assist with sales and marketing – monitoring and following up on marketing resulting as well as advertising online (even advertising and headhunting staff too if you’re looking for a particular person or group of people).
Individual Personal Assistant
An Individual Personal Assistant – the god send that in reality we all need at some point! A Personal Assistant can be on hand as and when you require to assist you in tasks, step in when you are unable or accompany you on trips. They can also deal with personal duties and errand running when your other commitments take over.
Payroll/Accountancy Services
Managing accounting, human resources, payroll, tax, and other financial responsibilities at the same time is a complex & time consuming affair. Many businesses still do all of these activities in-house, not realizing that such routine administrative work is getting intricate by the day, and is a big drain on their time.
Our Payroll Service offers some very unique benefits not only are we available to contact 24/7 but we can also make odd or delayed payments at unsociable hours. Many payroll companies have a cut off point for receiving payroll, as well as a set day – but not us! If one of your staff is late with new bank details, a timesheet is lost or an extra payment needs making, you can contact us and we will make sure the payment is processed as soon as possible, which is most cases would be within the hour! What more could you ask for? No more angry staff having to wait a week for the next available pay day… Happy staff – work well done! Not only does this keep your staff happy but it will minimise the complaints and workers continuously checking up which you may have to deal with, therefore giving you and your employees more time to concentrate on more important matters.
Our Accountancy services offer a full finance management service making sure all of the correct contributions are paid out swiftly and correctly, as well as taking care of business finances we can also deal with tax returns and assist in helping go from self-employed to being a limited company making sure this can benefit your finances massively.

Event Planning
Previously running an event planning company I have the background experience and knowledge to know how to make this service work. We at RDS PA Services Ltd can take your ideas and requests and roll them out into one great big amazing function! Whether that be a private celebration for any kind of party, or educational conferences, meetings, graduations, etc, but no the talents do not end there!! Businesses! You will BOOM once you let us give your events the sparkle they need in order to grow, we can throw networking events, product launches and shows or even just the BEST parties to thank all those staff that put the icing on the cake for you!
I will initially meet with you to discuss what you would like to get from your event, and any themes or special touches you want to add and then working to an agreed budget we make the magic happen! All you need to do is sit back and wait for the big day to come around!
We will take care of putting together your themes, designs and plans. Finding the perfect location, food, drink and entertainment. Any transport necessary to and from the event as well as accommodation. Invites and/or advertising. We will even be on hand on the day to supervise and coordinate activities to make sure the day goes smoothly. AND the best part is you don't have to deal with any of the outside agencies! We do ALL the work for you!
Social Media & Branding Management
Social Media Management is not just going to be one of those phases that gradually fades away – it is new age advertising and it’s no surprise it is so efficient when you see the statistics of users below. Social Media is a great and cost effective way to advertise and gain new business! With adverts, online flyers, business pages and much more there is a world of new business possibilities to unlock. Pretty much anyone can use the basic tools on social media but not everyone can unblock the tricks used in making your advertising campaign a successful one that why outsourcing your Social Media Management to a pro puts you onto a winner!
Facebook continues to take the lead with an influx of 1.5 billion monthly active users worldwide. The UK makes up 31 million of those users, with 60% of the population having a Facebook account. The most popular age group is 25-34 (26% of users) but Facebook is a great platform to speak to a mass market of ages and locations.
Instagram revealed it had 14 million monthly active users in the UK back in July 2015. Instagram has a younger audience than Facebook, with 39% of its UK users aged 16-24. Also a slightly female skew, with 64% of Instagram users being female compared to 56% of Facebook’s
Twitter reported 15 million monthly active users in the UK
Branding is the visual communication you have with your customers, and influences what people say of you as an initial judgement. This covers your logo to things like fonts, text size and colours. Building a consistent brand is a key part of growing a reputable company. Branding is what brings on certain thoughts and feelings to your target market, whereas your colours, font and logo are your identity. I can assist in choosing the correct branding for your company making sure you are giving off the desired effect, ensuring that your design selection is relevant, memorable, original and effective.

I used RDS PA Services when I first set up my business to help me with advertisement. They got me my first few big leads which helped established the company. Business is doing extremely well and I believe this is all down to the amazing advice that was given right from the beginning. They offer a friendly and very professional service which I highly recommend.

I've watched Robyn build this company from scratch and the effort and time she has and still puts in is amazing. She always sticks to her plans and targets and always does everything in her power to make everyone's lives easier whilst keeping fair with costs. She organises my life really well too, I am very lucky.

I won a business session with Robyn and wasn’t sure what to expect from it. I have just started up my own business and wanted to know the basics of setting up and to understand a little more about advertising on social media. Robyn was extremely friendly and gave me plenty of information and advice. No question was too stupid! She also had lots of ideas on how to promote my business and went over improvements I could make. I would highly recommend using her services.

I own PES Fire & Security and met with Robyn for one of her Business Sessions due to my company becoming increasingly successful, and requiring some professional assistance. I heard great things about Robyns sessions and I now know why, she assisted me in helping put the steps in for where I want to get to and gave me lots of useful advice.
Since our session I now use RDS PA services to help with other areas of my business and the ease of outsourcing a number of different duties to one company is so handy.

RDS PA Services Ltd Q&A

RDS PA Services Ltd Q&A

What makes a great website?

First and foremost an important factor of any website is making sure that your branding is consistent throughout! This creates a memorable image of your business. Also your content must be clear, packed and informative... whilst keeping it looking neat and tidy. It must also be user friendly and not difficult to navigate!

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

I like to know my clients plans and dreams for their business, so that I can create a clear path on how I can help them achieve these. Also it's important to be clear about all their current and future requirements.

What kind of accounting services do you provide?

We can offer accounting input i.e. preparing spreadsheets ready to be handed into clients accountants, but we also offer a full accountancy service too.

Why is it so important for businesses to hire a great accountant?

Money makes the world go round - and this is what accountants specialise in. We make sure you aren't overspending in any areas - but also make sure all the correct fees are paid to avoid any hefty fines or legal proceedings.

What do you love most about your job?

I LOVE helping people, seeing a person transform from an overworked mule to a stress free happy individual makes everything we do worth while. Also watching and assisting with helping entrepreneurs make their dreams come true really gives a feeling like no other.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I decided not only did I want to better myself and start calling the shots, rather than being over worked and under paid, I also wanted to offer a wide range of services to best aid others to save them tirelessly searching or outsourcing to a variety of different people or companies.

Why should our clients choose you?
