Here’s 60 seconds with one of the VAs who joined our team earlier this year, bringing with her over 10 years of PA and administration experience and a love of typing!
Name: Hannah Brinklow
Area of expertise: Typing, Administration, Microsoft Word & PowerPoint, Shorthand
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I joined the Get Ahead VA team just a couple of months ago in July this year. The role sounded perfect as it allowed me to work on a variety of projects for interesting clients, whilst still giving me the flexibility to do the school run.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: I worked for over 10 years as a PA for an Insurance Underwriters in London. More recently I worked at the University of Surrey as PA to the Associate Dean for Research. Although local, and only a short walk rather than a train and tube commute, I still found the job lacked the flexibility I wanted to fit working around my young family.
Career highlight to date: The decision to leave my ‘regular’ job and embrace freelance work has definitely been a highlight. I haven’t looked back!
Plans for the future: To enjoy working flexibly around my two boys Elliott and Dexter, which being at Get Ahead VA allows me to do. On a personal note I would like to continue studying Spanish and gain a translation qualification which would add another skill to my armoury.
