Here at Get Ahead VA, our people are everything. We’re dedicated to growing our business all over the country, so our customers can access a wide range of highly skilled professionals wherever they are. We currently have regional offices in Leeds, Reading and Bristol, and we’re pleased to announce our latest addition: Newcastle.

Here’s 60 seconds with one of our new Regional Directors in Newcastle, Allison, who is working alongside fellow Regional Director Karen McCulloch to bring Get Ahead VA to Newcastle.

Name: Allison Wood

Area(s) of expertise: Business operations, processes and procedures.

When and why did you join Get Ahead VA? I joined Get Ahead VA in October 2018, and I run the Newcastle office with Karen McCulloch. Get Ahead has enabled me to fulfil my dream of running my own business, but I have the added support of working closely with Karen and the wider support of the Get Ahead team – it’s the best of both worlds, really!

What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA? I worked in the newly formed Customer Outcomes department of Newcastle Building Society as a Customer Outcomes Analyst.

Career highlight to date: I think making the decision to join Get Ahead was a big highlight – realising that I can work for myself and taking the leap!

Plans for the future: To fully establish Get Ahead VA in Newcastle and the wider North East.

If your business could benefit from Allison’s help, or to find a regional office where you are, please get in touch on 01483 332220 or We pride ourselves on being the staff you don’t see, but the difference you do.
