Virtual Assistant Durham & Darlington
I am Trish Guy and I run Pink Spaghetti Durham and Darlington. I live in Sedgefield and provide virtual personal assistant services to small businesses across County Durham, including Bishop Auckland, Newton Aycliffe and Peterlee.
I love helping others and finding solutions to problems so supporting small businesses in my local area with their projects, administrative tasks and social media management is my ideal role.
I have over 20 years experience working in client-facing roles in professional service organisations and more recently I have worked in the public sector. My experience includes working within HR, providing outsourced HR support, working within tax departments in accounting and legal sectors. I have worked with a diverse range of clients during this time which has given me a great deal of experience in listening and understanding clients to provide support tailored to their needs.
I am approachable, proactive, highly organised and love research and improving processes. It is a privilege to use these skills to support small business owners with their admin tasks to allow them to focus on the work they love.
Why a virtual assistant?
A virtual assistant does not just cover the traditional diary management and minute taking tasks, we are more of a virtual personal assistant, a clone of you as the business owner, getting through the tasks you don’t want to do, don’t have the time or the inclination to do. We are used to working with people who are amazing entrepreneurs, but by outsourcing and delegating their tasks, the time it frees up allows them to focus on what they are great at.
Using a virtual assistant is a cost-effective way of adding resource into your business. No holiday or sick pay, no tax, NI or pension costs, you don't pay for coffee breaks or office chat, and we are already trained in the things you need done. We offer either a "pick up, put down" hourly rate, or retainer agreements from just 4 hours a month for something more stable - whichever suits your business. We pride ourselves in open and honest pricing, so you will never get a surprise bill, and we can work to your budget.
Why Pink Spaghetti?
Pink Spaghetti is a franchise, and this means I have all these great people to call on. So, if I don't know the answer to something, there is always someone to ask to help. They are such a lovely bunch of friendly people and they can help if large projects come in, or cover through holidays and sickness. This means, for you, resource is always there even when I am not.
At Pink Spaghetti we appreciate how much there is to do - we are small business owners too! We are a friendly, approachable and humble bunch and enjoy becoming part of your team for as much or as little time as you need us. Our clients enjoy outsourcing to us without the hassle of employing.
A range of Virtual PA Services
The tasks we carry out are as varied as our customers! They are typically administration, social media, organisation and marketing tasks and we can be seen with a pile of receipts, or setting up a CRM system. We get involved when a business owner has had something on a list for a while but never quite gets around to doing it.
