Our Story

Virtual PA London was founded in 2017 by Hannah Collins and Jessica Gray: our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer. Hannah and Jess have built up over 25 years of executive experience between them, collecting a huge wealth of knowledge and becoming experts in the virtual world. They recognise what works in this industry and what doesn’t. As qualified Executive Assistants themselves, they have mastered running a virtual PA business that leaves clients feeling satisfied time and time again.

Hannah and Jess both strived for a more flexible work-life balance since becoming parents, and were sure that thousands of other professionals would be feeling the same way. They noticed a gap in the market for virtual working, and decided to pair their executive expertise with the idea of a virtual company. This is where Virtual PA London was born.

Our Vision, Mission & Values
At Virtual PA London, we aim for consistent client satisfaction above everything else. We wouldn’t exist without our wonderful clients – our mission is to ensure we continuously meet and exceed their expectations. Every member of our team shares this goal, and strives to be the best in the business. We also – of course – value each and every one of our incredible Virtual Assistants here at Virtual PA London. Our founders wanted to help professionals similar to themselves enter a career that offers a healthy work-life balance. They wanted to offer remote, virtual career prospects to hard workers with a wealth of experience and expertise. Our vision is to continue building on our company, and spreading the message about remote and virtual working. Hiring a Virtual Assistant for 2 hours per day is just as effective as having a full time PA, but for a fraction of the cost. We want to help people realise the potential that lies within virtual working, and understand how effective it can be for businesses and professionals.
We are proud to have a team of Virtual Assistants with an incredible wealth of knowledge across multiple industries. We have an extensive recruitment process, ensuring we are appropriately particular about who we work with. We know exactly what we are looking for in our Virtual Assistants in terms of both skillset and personality, and every one of our Virtual Assistants have a minimum of 10 years experience. The successes of our recruitment strategy reflects in our high retention rate.
