I'm Sophie, a virtual assistant based in Oxfordshire & Brighton.
I am creative, organised and reliable. I enjoy finding creative solutions to problems and helping people.
I have over 8 years experience in administration roles (including teaching myself on all products, handling phone calls and managing projects) and for 5 years I worked as a Learning & Development Trainer, both at a large insurance firm, excelling in training, supporting and managing staff members in everything from their first day in the office, to the vast amount of processes and products. I designed and run courses, produced inventive learning solutions and created company wide training material.
I have worked as a Marketing Manager for a local magazine, where I multi-tasked creating and managing their social media, email marketing, sales leads, and even sourcing content for the magazine including carrying out interviews with local celebrities, and writing up and designing articles. (from Interior Design to how to spring clean!). I also rebranded the company logo and designed their business cards to be more current.
In my own time I have studied and completed a Legal Secretary Diploma, an Interior Design Diploma and I design wedding stationery and personalised gifts (this one mostly as a hobby!).
For the last few years I have been working as a virtual assistant alongside being a mum of 2. I have already worked with so many different amazing people in all sorts of sectors, from well known large companies, to entrepreneurs, and charities, and the role has meant that I have learnt about things I never would have done otherwise, which I really enjoy.
Each time I have worked with a client, it has been a very different experience. Each business has different needs but I like to think i'm good at adapting to fit the role required.
If I really don't think I will be a good fit for you or your business, however, I will be honest and can help point you in another direction.
It's really important to me that you feel confident and comfortable working with me, and there is no obligations at all. If you longer need my help, then you only need to say, there are no fees, no middle man (or middle company's fees to pay).
The kind of tasks I have previously done as a VA include: running Shopify and Amazon accounts, managing customer service, checking emails, designing logos and business cards, coming up with marketing ideas, creating and maintaining spreadsheets, PowerPoint, blogging, setting up and managing social media accounts on all platforms, responding to customer reviews, research, day to day admin tasks, and more.
I like to think that I can cover quite a few different areas, helping you in getting all those small jobs done that you never seem to have time for! I know that your time is important and that you'd rather be spending it running your business, so this way you can have an extra staff member without the added overheads.
