Virtual Assistants: Genies of the Office

Virtual assistants office support

You’ve all heard of Aladdin & the genie of the lamp?

Virtual assistants ARE THE OFFIce equivalent!

Well … they can’t really fit into an oil lamp or grant three magic wishes but they’d do an excellent job of finding perfect solutions to your business problems.

So what are the benefits to you of hiring a virtual assistant? 

Virtual assistants are multi-skilled professional business people in one package.

If you hire an employee, you hire them to carry out one job with particular parameters.

Hire a virtual assistant and you could have a first class Personal Assistant who has a flare for social media, creates effective email marketing campaigns, types detailed notes at meetings and then does a little transcription work when she has as moment.  Oh, and she understands the challenges of running a small business because she runs one herself.

They’re Jill-of-all-Trades, and very good at them all!


Hiring an employee is costly.  You will pay for:-

1)  Tax or National Insurance
2)  Holiday pay
3)  Sick pay
4)  Paid breaks
6)  Office overheads
7)  Equipment such as laptops, desks, chairs or telephones

Hire a virtual assistant and you will pay for:-

1)  Her time.

That’s it!


An employee is taken on for an agreed amount of time (either full or part-time) and contracts are binding.

Virtual assistants can be very flexible with time.  They will work on an ad hoc basis as and when you need extra help, or they’ll arrange to work with you on regular, ongoing assignments.

This gives you financial flexibility: work with your virtual assistant for as little or as long as your budget allows.

Location, location, location

An added bonus, which is sometimes overlooked, is that you’re not restricted to working with a virtual assistant within a certain geographical area.  I know of two virtual assistants who live in France and work all week, virtually, with clients in Britain!
