Why use Optimum Support Services as a Virtual Assistant
Firstly, a Virtual Assistant is not someone you never meet, who has a generic name and is actually a group of different employees pretending to be the same person. Well not at Optimum Support Services anyway. Whilst we are offering in essence a virtual service, this does not mean that we only support you through the web or over the phone (although we do just this for many clients who travel, have a home office etc). We are offering services that save you money. We do not need a desk in your office, or a computer or any employee benefits and you will not need to pay National Insurance contributions for us or join us in your Pension scheme.
Founded by Rebecca McGeachy (fCIPD), Optimum Support Services can provide you with the perfect virtual assistant services. Whether it’s a bespoke piece of work or regular monthly support, I’m here to support you. I am a fully qualified HR consultant and a Chartered member of the CIPD as well as IOSH qualified and having worked across various sectors including finance, insurance, retail and beauty, contact centres, recruitment and third sector I have seen the importance of Support Services. I spent my last 6 years of employment working as an Assistant Director managing the Support Service functions (HR, Payroll, Finance, Office Management, Training, Reception and more) for a large Charity in Kent and made the move to become a Virtual Assistant having been approached by local businesses for support with their back office service so that they could focus on building their business.
As a qualified HR professional and a Fellow member of the CIPD, Optimum Support Services can off you a fully qualified HR Manager at a fraction of the cost. For most businesses having a fully qualified member of staff dedicated to managing all of their HR administration would be an ideal solution to their needs.
Payroll administration and processing presents a set of time-sensitive complexities that requires substantial resources to execute efficiently, accurately and in a legally compliant manner. By outsourcing your payroll administration to Optimum Support Services it will free you from the meticulous and time-consuming efforts associated with payroll, allowing internal resources to focus on core business objectives.
Back Office Support
Your focus, quite rightly, should be on the front line of your business – dealing with clients and customers, setting your strategy, focusing on how to grow your business. However, all businesses, regardless or size, age or type have administrative tasks that need to be undertaken.
