“Lancashire entrepreneurs deserve the headspace to do the work they love
during this challenging time”
Eloise Robb, from Chorley, started an Alchemy Virtual Assistance (VA) hub from her home office last month, with the purpose of providing flexible, remote admin and PA support to growing businesses under the trusted Alchemy brand.
Since the soft launch of her franchise at the beginning of August, Eloise – who has many years’ experience as an in-house PA and VA, as well as a degree in business – has been approached by sole traders and independent business owners in the Northwest and UK-wide, all looking for extra support now that they have had to adopt new remote and virtual ways of working.
Just one month on, and she already wants to do more.
“Lancashire entrepreneurs deserve the headspace to do the work they love during this challenging time, especially as they are working harder than ever to get back on track – but they cannot do it alone. These are the kinds of people I am now supporting, and I can help others too,” said Eloise.
“I help plan and organise new and more efficient processes and procedures for clients, as well as taking charge of their inbox, invoicing, social media management and lots of other tasks remotely.
“During lockdown many people have re-evaluated their lives and decided to follow their dream to start a new business. Being a VA in Lancashire puts me in a fantastic position to support others as they recover, reshape and innovate during these uncertain times.”
Already a highly knowledgeable VA, Eloise was keen to raise her game and actively sought to launch her new venture under the umbrella of Alchemy’s successful and award-winning team.
Alchemy VA’s founder, Suzy Sanders said: “We’re delighted that Eloise has chosen to pursue her Virtual Assistant dreams with the support and backing of Alchemy, and we are incredibly excited to have welcomed her into our family business at a time when we are seeing an influx of enquiries.
“Eloise has such passion and enthusiasm, as well as an incredibly robust and varied skill set across many sectors and disciplines. Having Eloise on board will only strengthen and broaden our ability to help and positively impact even more people.”
“Professional VAs have a wealth of experience, skills and connections which means we are best placed to assist people who are now running their businesses remotely, whether it be partially or exclusively. It is because of this that we are proving to be such powerful strategic partners to small business owners during this extraordinary period.
