What is a virtual expert?

A virtual expert is a professional within a particular field. Across our team, we have experts in admin, business development, marketing, websites and more, delivering fantastic work for clients like you. They usually work from home and use Get Ahead email addresses to ensure security and compliance.

Our virtual experts are all specialists. They only do what they’re exceptional at, and only do what they love. This means you can expect a high standard of work and some valuable professional insights too.

A hand-picked solution

We’ll listen to your business requirements and hand-pick the right individual or team for your needs. We can even help you analyse your business to identify what support you need and how to make it work for you. 

How it works

If you’re a business that would benefit from flexible outsourced support, we’re here to help. Start by contacting your local regional director – they’ll help you put together a scope of work or a brief. Choose from open-ended support for total flexibility or a fixed budget to keep you on track.

Next, the regional director will assemble the right team for your needs or introduce you to an individual expert. You can work directly with your virtual expert(s) or let the regional director manage the communication for you.

At the end of each month, you’ll receive an invoice from the regional director for all the approved work your virtual experts have completed.
