I have been employed and self employed in various roles in over 30 years of working. My experience is in many areas, including admin, procurement, insurance, sales and training; gaining the majority of my knowledge from working in the head office of a well known major retailer for 21 years.
I am married, a mother to two daughters and have lived in London and Essex all my life. We now live in Burnham on Crouch where I run my business from my home office.
The previous five years of being self employed, prior to launching KB Virtual Services, I was running my own franchise branch of a Nanny Agency and then working with an Insurance Broker. During this time I began networking and meeting other business owners in and around Essex. This helped to develop my idea of setting up my own business and offering my various office skills to individuals and small businesses as a Virtual Admin Assistant.
I enjoy helping others to free up their time so they can work on their businesses instead of getting stuck in their admin. I love to learn new skills and packages so I can take control of certain tasks for my clients, so they don't have to worry.
About KB Virtual Services
KB Virtual Services support small businesses and individuals by being an extra pair of hands when you need us. You can benefit from using our professional admin services by having us for as little or as long as you need. The work we do is of great quality at all times and you can rely on us to help you through a short term crisis, holiday cover, maternity leave or sickness, or on a more regular basis.
Ad-hoc work is charged at an hourly rate or you can choose from our monthly/retainer packages which are paid in advance - these can help you by planning the use of our time more effectively and having regular hours assigned to your business.
Hiring a Virtual Assistant is very cost effective – the main advantage is complete flexibility - we work as many or as few hours as required and you only pay for the actual time worked. You can also claim our costs as an expense to your business!
You don't have any employee costs - sick pay, pension contributions, PAYE, National Insurance, holiday pay – or agency or recruitment fees.
There's no need for additional office space, equipment or supplies, including the costs this involves, as we support you by working remotely at our own office space. However, if you'd like support at your office this can also be agreed depending on location, etc.

Create or edit documents
Create or edit Excel spreadsheets
Update CRM or databases
