Here’s 60 seconds with one of our VAs, Rob, who joined Fiona’s team this year.
Name: Rob Beadle
Area of expertise: Copywriting and social media
When and why did you join Get Ahead VA? I began working with Get Ahead VA in May 2018 after Fiona contacted me about the opportunities here in Leeds. As a freelancer I like the flexibility and the variety of work available.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA? I’ve been a freelancer for about 6 months. I’ve worked with a range of small businesses from hypnotherapists to designer-makers.
Prior to that I’d been a project manager working for banks and building societies. I helped clients to manage complex IT and business changes. Whilst project management was my day job, in my spare time I was a volunteer for a campaign organisation. That’s where I learnt my copywriting skills – playing with words to change people’s minds!
Career highlight to date: The biggest highlight has been leaving the corporate world and becoming a freelancer. It’s allowed me to follow my passion, make a difference and help other people.
Plans for the future: I’m looking forward to working with a new range of clients. Also, I’ve recently moved to Yorkshire with my wife, so I’m keen to explore more of this part of the world.
