A virtual assistant needs to have a range of skills including:

  • Writing and oral skills
  • Time management and organisational skills
  • Word Processing and computer skills
  • A love for learning
  • Self starting and effective decision making

A Virtual Assistant should be good at multitasking, time keeping,  problem solving, computers and communication as well as being able to work on their own initiative and work remotely.

Being a Virtual Assistant is not easy but with the right skillset and a plan, it’s perfectly possible to succeed.

A mentor will help to identify your skill gaps and develop your existing skills, and pass on any information you need in order to start and grow your Va business.  They will support, encourage and cheer you on!
