Here’s 60 seconds with one of our VAs who delivers significant software expertise following many years in Retail Supply Chain Management:
Name: Jane Knight
Areas of expertise: MS Excel, MS Powerpoint, Data analysis & Project Management
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I joined Get Ahead VA in October 2012 – My daughter had just started preschool and I was keen to do something interesting with the time that I had available. Working at Get Ahead VA has been fantastic as it allows me to work on varied and interesting projects whilst still keeping the flexibility to be a stay at home mum.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: I worked in Retail Supply Chain Management for 8 years. My most recent role was as Supply Chain Systems Manager for World Duty Free where I worked closely with IT and Technical functions to deliver the best working software solutions to the Commercial team.
Career highlight to date: There have been so many – I loved being in the corporate world and communicating with all levels of business to roll out new or improved pieces of software that would enhance business effectiveness, but being a VA and proving that it is possible to balance being a full time mother with an interesting job has also been a huge highlight. There is such a great sense of achievement to complete a piece of work for a client that makes a positive difference for them.
Plans for the future: My daughter is starting school in September so that will free up time to do more VA work. I also enjoy learning so am definitely thinking about something like a part time Open University course and my big 5 year goal is to take my Grade 8 Piano exam before I turn 40!
