Get Ahead VA Business Manager: Tarn
Here at Get Ahead VA our people are everything. Our ever-growing team has a wide range of highly skilled professionals with different backgrounds, expertise and even different personalities to ensure that we can find exactly the right VA to match our customers’ requirements.
Here’s 60 seconds with our Business Manager Tarn who joined the team last year, bringing with her exceptional organisational skills and a love of numbers:
Area of expertise: Organising – admin, finances, travel…or all of them together!
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I joined Get Ahead VA in February 2017. I was looking for a new role which would allow me to use my wide variety of skills and work from home around my family life (especially my adorable labradoodle Harley!). I was introduced to the company by one of their clients and I also went to school with one of the virtual assistants on the team, so there were lots of local connections. I met with Rebecca and was really pleased to hear more about the business. Get Ahead VA is perfect for me, as it offers the flexibility and variety I need, without the isolation – you are very much part of a really friendly team.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: Before having my two children, I was an Account Director with a marketing agency that was involved in direct marketing and events for one of the UK’s largest car manufacturers. Prior to working at Get Ahead VA, I was running a company with my husband, organising international travel by private jet which required a lot of attention to detail in the planning.
Career highlight to date: I helped organise a 47-day tour of the world by private jet. The client very kindly flew me out to Bali to meet up with them halfway through the trip (including my husband who was the pilot). It was most definitely the most amazing place I have ever had a client lunch (in the middle of a rainforest), which was followed by an afternoon riding elephants!
Plans for the future: Having visited Toronto, New York, the Maldives, Portugal and Dubai in the last 18 months, I should probably not say travel…but yes, more travel! My quest to find the best Mojito in the world continues. I am also on the lookout for our next home/property project.
