Hello and welcome to Virtual PA Derby. I’m Kirsty Allen (Dip. RSA) and I’m an admin loving Virtual PA based in Derby. I set up Virtual PA Derby on 1st October 2016.
I have worked in administration for over 24 years. I started as an Office Junior for a local Steel Fabricators. Since that time, I have worked in a number of administration roles: Senior Proofreader and Production Assistant for a publishing company; Clerk Typist for Social Services; Administration Assistant for a Contract Flooring company; PA to General Managers for the Mental Health Service and Medical Secretary to Consultant Psychiatrists for the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service.
I worked for over 13 years as a Medical Secretary / PA and Team Leader for Derby Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. I am a true believer in lifelong learning and through my career, I have gained a multitude of relevant qualifications to Diploma level, which have given me a comprehensive skill set that I can call upon.
Admin is a very important part of any professional’s working life but, as with most things, the demands of the job often mean that admin tasks get overlooked; deadlines are missed and it often seems like you will never get on top of your admin.
Whether you are a small - medium sized business owner, freelancer, tradesman, a sole trader, or even a busy medical professional who needs help with their private practice admin, Virtual PA Derby can help.
It is rare that businesses can afford the luxury of an employee to assist with the minutiae of tasks that are necessary for the business, but which you either do not have the time or inclination to do.
There are only a set amount of hours in the day for businesses to work with clients so why waste time on tasks you don’t enjoy?
Although we are a Virtual PA company, we will work with clients at their premises, within a 20-mile radius of Derby, if this is what they require.
