Virtual Assistant Yeovil, Mendip & Warminster
We are Zoe Schoon and Jemma Chambler. We are Virtual Assistants and together we run Pink Spaghetti Yeovil, Mendip and Warminster. We pride ourselves on taking care of your back-end office, so you can get on with running your business and doing what you do best.
Zoe lives in Bruton and Jemma lives in Yeovil, which means we are local and can work remotely or in your office as your needs require. Consider us the invisible glue behind your business – we can work and write in your voice providing seamless support for your business. Everything from admin, invoicing, marketing, blogging and social media – we can take care of all this for you.
Zoe has over 20 years secretarial and PR experience, gained mainly in the art world and theatreland in London. As well as this, she has experience supporting HNW individuals on a personal level and experience in London’s property sector. She is used to high pressure environments, problem solving under pressure and thinking on her feet when things unexpectedly change. She has also been fortunate enough to work in a variety of sectors so can adapt her communication style to support clients’ individual style.
Jemma worked as a PA within the NHS for over 10 years and then worked from home running a busy Private Patient practice for a busy Orthopaedic Surgeon. This covered a wide range of tasks from diary management, general office management and communicating with the public on a daily basis. She prides herself on organisation and the finer details and also has a real flare for events planning and organisation. Providing support to clients and therefore contributing to a successful growth for their business is a challenge is something that Jemma thrives on.
Why a virtual assistant?
Cut out the holiday and sick pay and the rigmarole of recruiting! No more faffing with NI, tax or pension costs. You need help and you need it now. It’s bad enough that you’ve not got the time to run your business (as well as do the do) but now you have to recruit too?! If this is you, then a virtual assistant (or VA) could be your answer. It’s not just diary management. We will become a clone of you – running your business from the back end; from Social Media to research, blogging, website updating and invoicing to managing your diary, responding to emails – whatever youo need us to do in order to get on with your work.
With Pink Spaghetti there are no nasty surprise bills at the end of the month. We can offer a pick up and put down service or a retainer agreement. The point is, the hours are agreed before we do the work (or carefully monitored throughout) so you always know what’s coming out of your pocket at the end of the month.
Why Pink Spaghetti?
If you decide to work with us, you’re getting the benefit of the whole Pink Spaghetti network. A wealth of expertise, experience and knowledge in all sorts of sectors and all sorts of systems, specialist or otherwise. We are a small business ourselves, so we totally understand the pressures of trying to run a business whilst doing your work – it’s a fine juggling act! Nothing is too big or too small. You can commit to a few hours a month or simply pick us up and drop us when you need to cover holiday or sickness.
Similarly, if we get sick or go on holiday, we have a whole network to provide cover for us, which means you’re always taken care of as a valued client to a big community of doers. We enjoy becoming a part of your team and working in your voice. Nobody need know you’ve employed a virtual assistant if you don’t want them too – we can be your secret support system.
A range of Virtual PA Services
We are looking to work with business owners who are great at what they do and less good at running their own business. Tasks we typically take on are administration, social media, research, marketing, piles of receipts, correspondence, CRM systems, diary management, filing – you name it. And if it’s something we’re not familiar with or haven’t done before, you can bet we know somebody who has! Remember there is no limit to how much or how little you use us for each month – we literally charge by the minute.

“I have been working with Pink Spaghetti for a few months now and I honestly don’t know how I managed without them. Before, I was time-poor, trying to do multiple tasks at once and generally feeling frustrated that I had a lot of things I was failing to get through each day. Now I am able to spend more time on my customer work, I feel like I have more time in the day, and know that I have the support of Jemma and Zoe if I am overloaded. They managed to integrate seamlessly into my workflow, and improve it as though they were an extension of the team, and I would highly recommend them."
