Name: Charlotte Smith
Area of expertise: Client relationship management and organisation
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I joined Get Ahead VA in February this year after deciding to change my working practice in order to give myself more flexibility around my family’s needs. I was looking for more variety and challenges in my working life, meeting new people and helping them with their businesses. Mutual friends put me in contact with Rebecca at Get Ahead VA. When we met her professional yet personal attitude and outlook really resonated with me and I was very happy to become part of the team.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: Since leaving my career in the City as an Account Manager when I started my family, I have enjoyed working as a Guest Relations Consultant for a ski company and PA to the Head Teacher at a primary school. Client services and relations have always played a big part in my working life.
Career highlight to date: Whilst I was working as an AccountManager for City Software House I initiated and maintained the relationship with their first European client. We signed a very important contract which paved the way for other European clients and the international expansion of the business.
Plans for the future: I am looking forward to continuing to develop my VA skills, particularly with respect to social media and the more technical side of the business. There are so many experts on the team that I already feel I have learned so much from. I am also looking forward to completing the Counselling Skills course I have been studying part time since September and enhancing my people skills. In my spare time, I love listening to live music so I am hoping to see a few open air concerts and maybe even get to a Festival over the summer months.
