Questions you need to ask before choosing a VA

4. Working with a Virtual PA – What you need to ask in advance

  • How long have you been in business?

Beck & Call has been in business for 6 years in the UK, prior to which we operated a similar business in Canada.  We have now re-established an office in Canada. Therefore we have over a total of 12 years experience in the industry. 

  • What type of PA experience do you have?

Linda Humphries, director, has 23+ years experience.  Her background includes working with various industries, government, legal, accountancy, insurance, networking group and the media. Our other team members have between 5 to 10 years PA experience.

  • How does the process work?

Prior to signing an agreement, we offer you a 1-hour free consultation in person (if local) or on the phone.  We listen carefully to your requirements and offer some  suggestions.  When you have decided what services suits you best, we then send you an agreement for signature, along with our Terms & Conditions.  We work on a Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) basis, which means you purchase the number of hours that you require.  A deposit is usually required prior to start of work.

  • Can you provide references and CVs for our review?

Yes, we have CVs available to send to you upon request.  Our references are listed under our Referrals page (or click here).  Feel free to contact them.  If you require more references these are also available upon your requests.
