Gone are the days when Secretaries were housed next to their Manager’s office and were called in to sit in front of their boss’s desk to take shorthand.

Secretarial Services are now being offered to businesses from a ‘virtual office’. Secretaries and Administrators have their own office which is usually home based with all the latest equipment and technology in which you would find in any modern office.

It is a concept that is growing and as companies are seeing the many benefits it provides, for instance, only paying for the time it takes to do a task, saving on holiday and sick allowances, superannuation and not having to pay their secretary to have a chat to their colleague about a television programme they watched the previous night, more and more companies are seeking the help of a Virtual Assistant.

It is no longer necessary for a Secretary, Personal Assistant or Administrator to be right next door to their Manager. Most communication, even in an office in this day and age, is done via email, therefore what difference does it make that your Secretary is sitting in an office on the other side of the world?

Virtual Assistants are becoming increasingly popular with small businesses who cannot justify employing a full-time administrator and other headaches associating with recruiting, training and supervision.

Virtual Business Support is a virtual secretarial service based on the Gold Coast, Australia. Its owner, Karen Talbot has over 20 years experience in administration and is qualified to Diploma, level 5 in Management. Its client base is constantly growing due to the variety of high quality services it provides and the Virtual Assistant’s professionalism and reliability. No job for Virtual Business Support is too big or too small.

  1. The virtual assistants perform the tasks remotely bringing cost-savings and greater efficiency for the company. The developments in web tools have also helped in making virtual assistance thrive because companies that are not used to using social media and other internet tools for business are outsourcing the tasks to competent virtual assistants.

  2. Thank you for your comment L. Social Media is one of the services we specialise in and as it is here to stay, more companies are realising this and relying on VA's to keep their profile socially active for them.

  3. Hi,

    A virtual legal secretary is a perfect niche you can specialise in, in your virtual assistant business. There are so many practices out there that are better off outsourcing their work to a home based legal secretarial service, especially small ones. Thanks a lot...
