Here’s 60 seconds with our Berkshire & North Hampshire Regional Director, Suzanne, whose background as a Virtual Assistant makes her the perfect candidate to run a regional office.
Name: Suzanne Cox
Area of expertise: I’m an experienced Virtual Assistant myself; highly resourceful, proactive and detail oriented with a core enthusiasm for HR.
When and why did you join Get Ahead VA? I joined Get Ahead VA in May 2019 after running my own Virtual Assistant business. I always aspired to grow this business and support other local VAs, so the opportunity to run an established franchise came just at the right time.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA? I built a career in operational HR for two multinationals and took redundancy as an opportunity to start my own business as a Virtual Assistant. I had six great years when my children were young being able to manage my work around their needs. I love the varied, reactive nature of VA work and particularly enjoy supporting start-ups to grow to the point where their needs for a VA develop.
Career highlight to date: I’ve been fortunate to have some great roles in my career, all giving me new insights into business, people and myself. Managing and analysing performance management data for over 15,000 global employees in a part time role was certainly my biggest achievement and gave me the skills and confidence to liaise with a range of senior people. I’m really looking forward to taking all my experience into Get Ahead.
Plans for the future: To build the Get Ahead business in Berkshire & North Hampshire with a team of experienced VAs helping our clients’ businesses to grow.
