Virtual Personal Assistant Agency
Elite PA Solutions – Virtual & Executive Assistants
An award-winning virtual assistant agency, committed to supporting you in identifying and onboarding the assistant best suited to your requirements. We provide guidance throughout the process and are experts in understanding how your relationship with your virtual assistant is fundamental to your success.
With the right appointment, a virtual assistant brings expertise, efficiency and value to you and your organisation. They align themselves to your goals and ambitions, representing your values and purpose, and allow you to be the best version of yourself professionally.
We provide virtual personal assistants who support senior level executives, non-executive directors, leadership coaches, entrepreneurs and business leaders who are at the top of their game and understand the value of delegating tasks to the right people.
How do I know how much time I'll need support?
If you have not worked with a virtual assistant before, start by logging the time it takes you to complete. Simultaneously, segment out your tasks into categories – what you need to do, what you don’t enjoy doing, what you can delegate now, what you can delegate in time.
20 hours of support per month works out to be about half a day a week, 30 hours is almost a day a week and 40 hours is 1-1.5 days per week.
We suggest you start with a realistic amount of hours and we can build on these hours over time. Being realistic is a key part of our matching process, when it comes to the availability of the decided assistant you are ultimately matched to.

How do I work with my Virtual PA?
Working with a virtual PA is no different to being office based, well part from not physically seeing each other every day!
Communication is key to the success of your working relationship with your virtual assistant. Whilst it can take a few weeks for you both to become accustomed to working with each other, it is important to set out patterns of communication to which you both commit.
- Understanding priorities: In order to provide high quality and effective support, your assistant needs to understand your focus and goals, both short-term and long-term. As part of this, we always advise that our clients and assistants hold regular review meetings.
- Clear expectations: You should be clear of your requirements and any deliverables from the outset. As part of the onboarding process, so far as possible, key skills and tasks should be identified, and within this, it of course should go without saying that your assistant’s standard of work is to be professionally delivered and to a high standard.
- Understand your virtual assistant’s requirements: Your virtual assistant is not a full-time employee and will likely also be working with other clients or have personal, or family, commitments which affect their working hours. Be clear to understand from your assistant their availability, and to bear this in mind in particular with last minute requests.
