Here’s 60 seconds with one of our VAs, Bev, who recently joined the Get Ahead VA team.
Name: Bev Davies
Area of expertise: PA support including diary, meetings and inbox management. Project Management. Research. Event Planning.
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I met Karen and Allison at the North East VA Conference in September 2018. In early 2020 when I was looking to work with a forward thinking and vibrant organisation as a VA, I contacted the team and the rest is history! I love the variety of clients that you get to work alongside and help them flourish.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: I have 30 years’ experience as a PA working in UK, Australia and Hong Kong. One of my more interesting roles has been supporting the Test Team of over 200 in number at Hitachi Rail, Newton Aycliffe. Not many people can say they have been in the pit looking at the underside of one of the new LNER Azuma trains.
Career highlight to date: I set up the operational side of the National Skills Academy Process Industries (NSAPI), I held the title as being employee No.1! In the first 18 months I was responsible for setting up the business infrastructure from inception and two subsequent office moves. I procured and managed business insurances, telephone/mobile contracts, office equipment and IT infrastructure, pension scheme, H&S requirements, HR contracts and handbook. I learned so much during this time and can bring to clients.
Plans for the future: To continue to support growing businesses by looking
after their non-billable tasks, allowing them to concentrate on doing what they
do best with their clients.
