My experience was gained working for a large accountancy firm based in London, for 10 years in Executive Assistant and Event Management roles for Senior Individuals.
On deciding to have a career change I began working as a Virtual Assistant as well as assisting in running the family business.
Two years later I had worked with a variety of different clients across different sectors and felt that I had learnt my trade as a Virtual Assistant. The family business was also more organised and profitable than ever before.
So I embarked on a new challenge and set up Help! VA Ltd, for two reasons, firstly to help small businesses grow and succeed, and secondly to provide flexible working jobs for talented administration professionals.
I feel strongly about what a Virtual Assistant can do for business. A good Virtual Assistant is a real asset to any business. From freeing up business owners day to day by taking on tasks to using their wealth of knowledge and experience to put systems and processes in place and help business to grow and achieve. Good admin support makes a company much more efficient, productive and ultimately more profitable.
Having a young family myself I feel very passionately about flexible working. At Help! VA we provide flexible working contracts for all of our Virtual Assistants so that they can have a desired work/life balance whilst earning an excellent income.
I have over 15 years of senior-level administrative support and events planning in the property, legal and recruitment sectors. I have had the privilege of working alongside FTSE100 CEOs, NEDs, and high net worth individuals within national and global organisations.
Having taken a career break to raise my two children I now use my experience to work as a Virtual Assistant. I am outgoing, friendly and enjoy meeting new people. I love to organise and complete tasks to a high standard, having a sense of self-achievement and always strive for perfection, with a keen eye for detail.
I have worked for the majority of my career to date in many ‘high end’ customer-facing roles on a secretarial/PA basis, including British Airways for 13 years. I consider myself a conscientious person who offers excellent customer service, has a ‘can do’ attitude’ as well as being extremely approachable. I am always willing to go the extra mile, show great attention to detail and ensure tasks are completed within an expected timeframe.
I have worked as a Virtual Assistant for the past 5 years supporting many high profile professionals in all aspects of their business and personal needs, many of these have involved dealing with complex and confidential matters with discretion. The roles have also included keeping abreast of the financials, extensive client communication, and diary management, as well as travel arrangments and various ad-hoc duties.
