Here’s 60 seconds with our VA Jacinda Love
Name: Jacinda Love
Area of expertise: Multi-media marketing and business development
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I joined GAVA in January 2021. I love the ethos of everything GAVA stands for –helping businesses by giving them assistants (and assistance!) on affordable and flexible terms which, in these times where life and work is constantly being juggled, suits clients and consultants alike.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: I was the Marketing Manager for one of the UK’s top investment promotion agencies promoting Essex as a place of business. I led a marketing and PR team to deliver multi-media marketing for a £2.1 million project which generated over £110 million and nearly 3500 jobs to the local economy. My team and I promoted 23 events over three years and I was a key influencer for the Business Excellence Awards Essex securing corporate sponsors, partners and entrants. I worked with businesses, from large organisations to over 50 SMEs, helping them to thrive and grow.
Career highlight to date: A major project involving developing a new website (resulting in an increase in website traffic by 52%) and rebranding business centre (resulting in a 25% increase in occupancy)but most satisfying of all was seeing clients expand their reach through my direct involvement, facilitating collaborations for clients with the likes of Eat Natural and The Dorchester.
Plans for the future:
- Maintain a healthy work/life balance.
- Help as many SMEs as possible navigate their way through and out of the pandemic. Forge new collaborations and nurture existing ones.
- Non-Executive and charity work.
- Travel if and when allowed!
- Try and get stronger in yoga. A never-ending work in progress…
