- What does a virtual PA do?
A Virtual PA is an individual able to provide a range of support services to a business from a remote location.
They can complete as many, if not more, tasks than in-person support staff.
These may include answering calls, managing enquiries, running a social media account, invoicing, bookkeeping, responding to email or web enquiries, data entry, credit control, transcription and general administration.
Virtual PA’s are used by businesses of all sizes to provide additional support with specific tasks.
- Is it worth hiring a virtual assistant?
In short, yes.
A Virtual PA can help you grow a business, giving you time to focus on what matters.
Outsourcing these tasks provides you with more time to focus on the most important and complex elements of your work and requires less to be spent worrying about administrative jobs.
Virtual PAs will ensure you never miss a call or online enquiry, not only increasing efficiency but also potentially your profits.
Unlike regular support staff, Virtual PAs reduce employment costs dramatically compared to a fixed cost associated with permanent employees.
Typically, you would have to pay for office space, relevant equipment such as computers and phones, furniture as well as additional tax.
With a virtual PA working from a remote location, you won’t have to worry about any of those.
Hiring full-time staff in an SME can also be difficult when, of the 40 hours they are contracted to work each week, you may only need them for 10.
Virtual PAs can be more flexible, working as and when you need them.
That flexibility can quickly become an asset to your business.
They can adjust their working hours to match your schedule, maximising performance and productivity.
A Virtual PA can often complete a task within 24 hours, ensuring it is done to a high standard.

- Who hires virtual assistants?
