We have seen a rise in the demand for virtual and hybrid/flexible working office assistants, PAs, Administrators and Executive Assistants who largely work 100% remotely or in a flexible hybrid home/office working capacity, to respond to the demands of a more agile working world.

This increasingly flexible and efficient way of running a business, means typically smaller companies, entrepreneurs and start-ups, who either may not have extensive office space, or an immediate office requirement with the financial commitment involved, are still able to hire these key assistant and support roles. This ensures the success of the business, enabling our clients to maximise their time whilst maintaining professionalism, business image and seamless organisational support.

The Benefits of a Virtual or Hybrid PA

The benefits of recruiting a virtual or hybrid/flexible personal assistant, on either a temporary or permanent basis, is that you tap into a wider network of our candidate community as location is largely taken out of the equation.

We will find you an exceptional calibre candidate, whether you are looking for a private PA or a corporate PA who understands the industry you work in.

As this is virtual working, we are able to carry out further check in addition to our existing service. We can provide further backgrounds checks if required and can facilitate the signing of a NDA. And with Virtual Assistants, comes virtual hiring, interviewing virtual is even more crucial as some of the nuances you glean from a face to face interview (from both parties) are harding to see. Our competency based interview framework is designed to mitigate these elements and ensure you make the right hire, or find the right role.

All candidates undergo the same rigorous interview and vetting and have been assessed for their eligibility to work in the UK. So they are able to start working for you straight away.

Our Virtual Support is broad and encompasses all areas we recruit for within our permanent and temporary divisions;

  • Reception
  • Secretarial and Office Administration
  • Project Work
  • Event Professionals
  • Personal Assistants
  • Executive Assistants
  • Private PAs
  • Marketing Assistant
  • Team Coordinator
  • and more...

Our fees are the same as our office or hybrid working candidates on either a temporary or permanent basis. If you require a service that involves expenses, or a specific project with a daily rate we will discuss this with you before finding the right virtual assistant to suit your requirements.
