Do you have times when you need additional staff, typing support or particular skills to work effectively?
Perhaps you need temp cover for staff on holiday, off sick or on parental leave, accurate typists for audio/copy typing or live notetaking, or you’re a small business needing support during busy periods?
I have 30-plus years as a skilled typist and efficient administrator and have provided support to numerous businesses and individuals, with many becoming ongoing clients. I also have expertise in a wide range of sectors, including property, legal and financial services, so am well versed in industry-specific terms, grammar and standards.
Owner, Type Like the Wind
After a long career working for others, I found myself wanting to spend more time working on what I enjoyed; in 2013 I started audio-typing from home and the following year I established Type Like the Wind to focus on my love of typing, helping people and adding value to other people’s businesses.
I love to type! I have even entered competitions for “The Fastest Typist”. My typing speed is currently 125 words per minute (on a good day with the wind behind me), but I’m constantly striving for a better speed.
I always thought that anybody who had their own business doing something they loved was very lucky - and I’m now delighted to be one of those people.
Do get in touch if you need additional support; I’m always happy to discuss a new project, so don’t be shy!
What My Clients Say
“I’ve been working with Julie for almost two years now and she has been incredibly reliable in getting her dictations back – usually within a few hours. Julie has been a huge support for me and my team over this period.
Working in financial planning, we deal with a lot of sensitive information and we adhere to the Data Protection Act 1998 – Julie understands this clearly and always takes security and her responsibility very seriously.
We trialled using dictation software for a period at our firm but found it wasn’t as efficient, quick or as accurate as what we got with Julie – as an example, manually going back and replaced ‘icer’ with ‘ISA’ became a bit of a chore! Julie understands our industry, through her own dedication and doing her own research to understand certain areas and phrases. From my time working with Julie, I know she would put this effort in whatever the subject matter was.
I cannot recommend Julie enough to anyone considering or looking for a quality, reliable transcription service.”
Client Engagement Manager, Attivo Group
“Hello Julie, thank you so much for doing this quickly….its brilliant!
I am very impressed with your professional attitude and the accuracy and care you have taken and the speed of your response in typing up this life story. Putting it into paragraphs and setting it out so well has improved it, as has marking the few places where I need to correct the text. It was also extremely helpful to have the manuscript picked up and delivered back and the finished story emailed to me.
Very many thanks once again. You will have contributed hugely to making a 93 year old very happy indeed.”
“We have used Type Like the Wind for admin support in our Conveyancing Department during employee holidays and have found the turnaround time and quality of work to be excellent and provides good value for money.
“I have been using Type Like the Wind on a regular basis since January 2015, and in that time Julie has become an indispensable asset to my team. She has proved 100% reliable and whether copy typing or dictation, work is turned around quickly and securely with no fuss and complete accuracy.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her service.
Solicitor and Director
“Type Like the Wind have provided us with regular ongoing secretarial/typing support in our Residential Property Department since February 2015.
Julie lost no time in getting to grips with our IT systems and easily adapted to the way we work. We find her service to be competent, diligent, reliable, very speedy and cost-effective”
Director, Donnelly & Elliott Solicitors
In any business today you need flexibility. It’s not always easy to employ staff full time if you do not always have the requirement for full-time staff. As Type Like the Wind provides an actual as well as virtual service, you have the best of both worlds. One of the advantages of using Type Like the Wind is that you can call on the services at relatively short notice and it’s not a “virtual” communication, it is a real person who can come and see you or work from home, giving you the total flexibility to feed into your business as you need it. And most of all it is not a faceless person.
Another benefit of using the services of Type Like the Wind is that Julie is highly socially interactive and blends in well with practically every team, and with her years of experience, able to pick up systems very quickly. Whether using the services just for occasional ad hoc work, sickness, maternity or top-up cover, Type Like the Wind covers it all.

Thank you for all your help when covering for my assistant, Michelle. You are a pleasure to work with and fit in well with our nutty team (this is a compliment!).
I would have no doubt in recommending your skills to others and will never want to look around again for temporary help.
