Virtual Assistant Bristol
I am Helen Jackson and I run Pink Spaghetti Bristol. I have the skills to support small businesses run smoothly and efficiently. This allows you as a business owner to concentrate on doing what you do best.
I live in Ashton in South Bristol, just outside the city centre. I believe small businesses are hugely important and am passionate about supporting their growth. I am a good listener and enjoy finding solutions for customers. I am approachable and enjoy doing the work in the background needed to run a business.
I have 15 years’ experience in project management in both the private and public sector. I have managed projects from inception to completion, individually and managing a team of people. My skills range from managing budgets and project planning to chairing and minuting meetings and responding to issues as they arise.
I enjoy working with people to find solutions to problems and finding better or more efficient ways of working. I am confident working to deadlines and prioritising work to effectively get work done.
I have a good eye for detail and pride myself in producing work to a high standard and enjoy working with customers to work in accordance with their business ethos.
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.
