Virtual PA Services

Notebook and tablet on deskVirtual Assistants (VAs) provide a professional administrative service to clients on a self-employed basis, working from their own premises.  Some specialise in work requiring people skills while others concentrate on transcription and documents, with a further group offering creative, technical or book-keeping expertise.  Many VAs choose to operate within a particular sector.

There are more than 2,300 VAs in the UK working with nearly 13,500 small businesses.  On average each VA works with 5.8 clients.¹

VAs usually establish long-term client relationships as well as working on shorter projects. They will usually already have at least five years’ experience working at a senior level such as PA, Executive Secretary or Office Manager.

These are the services I offer. If there are other ways I can help you administratively, do let me know so that we can discuss.

The way we work is tailored to you.  If you like to communicate via short calls and emails throughout the week, or would rather devote a block of time on a specific day to a conversation by Skype which I follow up with agreed action, that’s fine.
