Jennifer Powis Virtual Assistant Staffordshire

Hi, I’m Jenny, a Virtual Assistant based in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire providing remote VA services. With several years of administrative and blogging experience under my belt, I’m a highly organised and conscientious VA.

I love working with small business owners and creatives, helping to free up their time and improve their content.

When I’m not carrying out my VA work, you’ll no doubt find me doing DIY, spending time in the garden, browsing Pinterest for interiors inspiration or reading my favourite blogs.

Work Experience

A Warwick University graduate, I gained administrative experience during my studies in temporary office placements, providing PA and administrative services in various roles.

Following my graduation, I worked as an Administrator for an education provider, building on the experience I had gained from previous temporary assignments. Responsible for providing PA services to the Education Support Services team, I also provided administrative support to Team Leaders and members of the Education Management Team when required.

In between working as an Education Support Services Administrator and becoming a full time Virtual Assistant, I worked as a Merchandiser for several companies. Providing merchandising support to various retail clients located throughout the Staffordshire area, this period gave me excellent experience of coordinating numerous projects simultaneously.

 

Virtual Assistant Experience

My first experience of being a Virtual Assistant came in 2014, when I carried out project work for a busy HR department at a nationwide construction company. Tasks included researching suitable training courses for various job roles, searching job boards for potential candidates and screening candidates for the Trainee Plant Operator Academy.

Fast forward to 2017, I chose to take the leap into becoming a full time Virtual Assistant and I’ve never looked back.

Clients worked with recently include jewellery and personalised gift businesses, a mental health charity, a franchise owner and a magazine editor.
