VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

Efficient and Flexible

Allow me to (virtually) fill the space in your business so you can focus on doing what you do best.

ABOUT ME

Versatile Support

If you're a consultant, small business owner or sole trader, I know from experience that you'll have a lot of hats. Administration, marketing, public relations (you might not realise it but you do it), recruitment, hr and finance... I'm here to support you by wearing hat/s you don't like, so that you can focus on wearing your "expert hat" to deliver your core business offering.


Although I have a particular interest in working with individuals and companies that focus on business / culture change, I've worked as a team player supporting busy people just like you, across a range of industries including food, cosmetics, automotive, AV and more. I'm particularly looking to develop relationships with 'people who make things good for other people', in whatever shape or form that comes in.


With over 20 years' experience working in a variety of roles including as a PA, marketing / PR agency account manager (in-house and in agencies), HR officer and business support executive,  I naturally consider the big picture and am equipped to appreciate importance of all elements of a business working together. 

I'm happy to provide more info - just ask or check out my Linked In profile, (there's a link at the bottom of the page), or  contact me today to find out how I can help you. We can have a no obligation chat and go from there...

 

TESTIMONIALS

 

A breath of fresh air when you need assistance to quickly tackle and convert or manage projects of all sizes. With a diverse range of skills and experiences, Sam quickly understands the brief(s) and can quickly not only make immediate progress but also lends her knowledge to guide the process efficiently, thoroughly and ensure its absolute quality.

I have to admit I was a little tentative to outsource such important and profit sensitive work but I’ve been proved entirely wrong, although I do believe this virtual assistant might be quite unique.

An asset to entrepreneurs and small teams in all fields - thanks Sam 👌

As you've got this far, you're probably wondering how much this will cost. Hiring me to share your business overload is surprisingly affordable as well as relatively low risk.  And it means you don't have the expense of recruiting and training a permanent team member (or members).

A flexible freelance virtual assistant like me will share the load and fill your gaps. I can work remotely or in your office, (travel costs may be applicable), on an ad hoc, regular or retained basis.
