About Me


My name is Jo Marland and I live in County Durham.  I have been a professional PA/Secretary all my working life.  I started as a temp in Scotland, moved on to the United Nations and the International Labour Organisation in Switzerland and then worked for the EU in the UK.  I have been lucky enough to have had a colourful career and have met some very interesting people. I like a challenge, as it makes things more interesting and keeps me on my toes.

I have used Jo's services on several occasions and not only is she very prompt in delivery but her experience has been most helpful on every occasion. I would have no hesitation in recommending JTM for secretarial services. In addition Jo is very personable and friendly.

I used the services of JTM for a large and complex project which needed to be professionally prepared documents both in Word and Powerpoint. It was a complex job which was done meticulously and professionally and with great success. Thank you for your amazing work and will definitely be using your services again.

We used JTM Secretarial Services for three years and consider the service to be First Class in every respect.   Our business model is time pressured and therefore deadline driven and in every instance the service provided by Jo Marland has been exemplary.  In addition, there is added value provided by the service in terms of advising on presentation of our material to clients, which is most useful and constructive.  The IT skill set offered is perfect and means we do not have to become distracted by preparation of spread sheets etc., allowing us to focus on our core business rather than spending time on mastering a variety of software programmes.  The service has been available to us in out of office hours at times and this has shown a strong commitment to client satisfaction.  We have no hesitation in recommending Jo Marland to others and would be happy to speak to anyone with enquiries.
