Answers to popular questions

What is a Virtual Assistance?

A Virtual Assistant (VA), or Virtual PA is the equivalent of a PA/EA or administrator. Rather than being in your office (or home), your Virtual Assistant works remotely.

Virtual Assistants provide admin, technical and creative support on a regular, ad-hoc or project basis which can be varied according to your needs.

Why use a Virtual Assistance?

Using a Virtual Assistant can be a cost effective and simple solution that allows you to find the time to focus on important things. I understand you need to be able to move onto your next milestone and my services will help tie up those loose ends.

A Virtual Assistant can help your business and life run more smoothly by utilising the services as much or as little as you need without the requirement of a contracted employee.

Not sure what to outsource?

I suggest you have a fresh look at your to do and wish list (or write one). Take note of the tasks you would have to do to achieve your goals. Continue to monitor the ‘business as usual’ tasks that you are doing over a week or so period.

From the created lists, identify the tasks that you need to do, the tasks that you don’t enjoy doing or are time-consuming and the tasks that you could ask someone else to do.

This will help you pick out what tasks you can and want to outsource to Milestones.

What about confidentiality and security?

Everything Milestones does is treated with strict confidence. Over 20 years of experience working in confidential environments has allowed me to fully understand the importance of confidentiality.

Milestones can provide templates for confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements which I am happy to provide and sign.

I am ICO registered and fully comply with GDPR. My devices are encrypted and the cloud storage I use is GDPR compliant.

What are the benefits of hiring Milestones as your Virtual Assistant?
