Meet the VA: Jennifer
Jennifer became a bilingual VA in 2016 after working as a Personal/Executive Assistant in Paris for 15 years. She grew up in England but was always passionate about Europe and learning foreign languages. When she began her first full-time job in Disneyland Paris in 1999, it was the beginning of a new life in France for her. Now completely bilingual, she is equally comfortable in both cultures.
During her career, Jennifer has assisted high level executives in a variety of industries. Through her experiences, she has developed strong administrative skills and a good knowledge of HR procedures.
As a dynamic, reliable and trustworthy PA, Jennifer is highly motivated and looks to provide her clients with efficient and reliable administrative support. She is a good communicator, uses her initiative and is well organised.
Based near Paris, Jennifer is ready to help clients in any geographical location. Target clients are small businesses and sole traders in both the UK (who need a French speaker) and France (who need an English speaker).
When not working, she can be found wearing a Girl Guider uniform (encouraging girls to be themselves, have fun, build lifelong friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and communities).
“I started as a bilingual VA after realising that there is a growing need from businesses and sole traders for virtual administrative services, that are only paid for when needed, with no recruitment costs or need for a permanent contract. I am now able to assist both French and English speaking businesses with tasks including general administration (email and agenda management, travel organisation, tracking of expenses, document preparation, etc.), event organisation (meetings, lunches/dinners, fairs or exhibitions), HR projects (recruitment, training, health and safety requirements, etc.), communication (social media accounts, websites, translations and interpretation).”
If your business could benefit from Jennifer’s help, or from any of our other VAs, please get in touch on 01483 332220 or [email protected]. We pride ourselves on being the staff you don’t see, but the difference you do.
