As the owner of a small business, employing just 12 people, I have to wear many hats. Whilst I didn’t have the need for full time business support, I found myself getting bogged down in the day-to-day “stuff” on top of leading a team and growing a business. I always thought it would be easier to “just do it myself.” Then I was recommended PA Business Support and within just six short months, Jo has made my life a whole lot easier. We have a set block of hours that she’s dedicated to supporting me per month and they’re used in line with the rhythms and rituals of the business so it’s totally flexible. She takes things off my to-do list, has taken on board the tasks that were bogging me down and preventing me from getting on with the bigger picture and her pro-active approach and intuitive nature means that she adds value and support that I hadn’t even considered possible. She just gets on with stuff and nothing is too much trouble. Aside from the business element of the relationship, she’s a great woman and a brilliant cultural fit too. She might be virtual, but she’s definitely become a part of the team that we wouldn’t be without.
Our working relationship with PA Business Support has been amazing. You are responsive when we need you to be, intuitive about the type of support we require and always professional in your approach. Amanda is a great person to work with, friendly, flexible and always willing to take on whatever task we set her. Thank you for supporting us through such an exciting growth period. I would not hesitate to recommend PA Business Support.
I have been delighted with the service I have received from PA Business Support. Even if you have reasonable keyboard skills when it comes to typing lengthy documents or reports, it is so easy to let PA Business Support do it for you. It makes so much sense to let them do the work for me, so I can focus on running the business or actually taking some well-deserved time for myself. The service is fast, efficient and very professional. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
I want to thank you so much for your service Reena. When I began my contract with PABS 6 months ago, I was very clear on what I wanted to accomplish. This project completes all on my wish list and I certainly could not have achieved all of this without you. I appreciated that you were very open to my methods of working, including using Asana – it made a huge difference to me because it meant that I could follow on a day-to-day without e mail. I have been dreaming of working with a well running CRM and having all of my bookkeeping up to date. I am very grateful, and I hope to work together with you very soon.
Following 3 years of managing everything ourselves, the business volumes had got to a stage of requiring further support. We found we were spending time on routine activities and not doing sufficient marketing and sales work to ensure a constant pipeline of new clients and project work. We decided to contract support on a virtual assistant basis, in keeping with our flexible resources and variable cost approach. We contracted with PA Business Support, as Sophie understood fully our requirements and was able to match a member of their team to our broad brief. 2 years in working with Jenny, we have been delighted with the support and work Jenny has produced for us. During this time we have managed to fully automate our back office system to simple app based interfaces and quick cloud software. Jenny has fully adopted this, allowing a high proportion of her time to be focused on supporting our clients, our contact network and marketing activities. During this period we have seen significant growth in our business and client base. We would highly recommend the virtual assistant resources managed by PA Business Support.
After almost five years, things were going well for my micro business, but I was now so busy that things were falling through the cracks — I needed some help! As it was always just ‘me’ previously, I was unsure how or where to start, or how to ‘let go’. I found PA Business Support, and Sophie listened to my concerns and could not have made it easier. She suggested Jo as my VA, and we immediately clicked — it was like we’d been working together for years after only a couple weeks. Jo is highly skilled, self-motivated, diligent, and she has become ‘my team’. I would highly recommend PA Business Support.
The team have been great to work with, very responsive with an interesting and diverse group of candidates to interview, all often offering different key qualities, providing a good selection. It was a great support and meant that the candidates put forward mostly met our requirements and we took them through to interview, avoiding the need to advertise and sift ourselves.
I am a ‘one-man-band’ and desperately needed assistance with the day to day running of my Financial Advisory company. Sabina listened carefully to my brief and selected a range of applicants who each had their own relevant attributes to bring to my business. She supported and advised in the decision making process and I now have an excellent PA who is working out really well. It was a seamless process and I would definitely recommend her to source good, competent PAs for your business
