Virtual Assistants for Business
Hiring a virtual assistant for your business is a cost effective way to add high-level staff to your team. The median salary for an executive assistant in the UK is £30,800 - add to that your pension and employers’ NI costs, training days, office space and equipment costs, sick days, holiday pay, professional fees, and consumables, and the cost of an employee skyrockets.
Signing up for a virtual assistant package from Lintel Studio gives you access to a huge talent pool of skilled executive assistants, marketing experts, copywriters, researchers, designers, and accountants for none of the overheads that come with hiring a traditional office team member. You won’t bear the cost of long chats about the weekend or lingering coffee breaks, you’ll only pay for our productive time.
As experts in our field, we can help you by completing a wide range of tasks with a short turnaround time, whether it’s booking travel for your next work trip, helping with the month-end accounts, scheduling your weekly tweets, assisting with board reports, writing a newsletter, or scheduling your client calls for the next three days. All with a rock solid confidentiality agreement in place.
Outsourcing work to a competent, capable VA will release you to pursue new opportunities without worrying about the burden of day-to-day administrative tasks. Choosing the right virtual assistant means getting somebody who is highly skilled, who works smarter, and who provides exceptional experience and value for money in the areas you struggle to keep on top of.
We have a highly-skilled, reliable, and competent team who work quickly and efficiently to provide a wide range of business support services, so if you want to expand your business without burning out, and you could use an extra pair of hands, we’re here to help. With over 22 years of combined experience with CE-level staff, we’ll help you get more work done in less time.
We offer the kind of flexible working and professional discretion that is invaluable to business owners, so whether it’s a few one-off hours to help you deal with an area of concern, or whether you’re looking for some help on a regular basis, read on to see if we’re the right fit for you.
