I’m Kirsty Allen (Dip. RSA) and I’m an admin loving Virtual PA based in Derby. I set up Virtual PA Derby on 1st October 2016.
I have worked in administration for over 24 years. I started as an Office Junior for a local Steel Fabricators. Since that time, I have worked in a number of administration roles: Senior Proofreader and Production Assistant for a publishing company; Clerk Typist for Social Services; Administration Assistant for a Contract Flooring company; PA to General Managers for the Mental Health Service and Medical Secretary to Consultant Psychiatrists for the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service.
I worked for over 13 years as a Medical Secretary / PA and Team Leader for Derby Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. I am a true believer in lifelong learning and through my career, I have gained a multitude of relevant qualifications to Diploma level, which have given me a comprehensive skill set that I can call upon.
Admin is a very important part of any professional’s working life but, as with most things, the demands of the job often mean that admin tasks get overlooked; deadlines are missed and it often seems like you will never get on top of your admin.
Whether you are a small - medium sized business owner, freelancer, tradesman, a sole trader, or even a busy medical professional who needs help with their private practice admin, Virtual PA Derby can help.
