Hiring a VA instead of a new employee gives you much more flexibility and a cost-effective way to get the support you need for your business. Here are some of the most significant benefits of hiring a VA rather than a new employee:

  • Working with a VA frees you from worrying about complex contracts and costly legal obligations. 
  • If your needs change, it’s easy to change your VA support. In contrast, changing an employee’s hours or hiring additional staff can be challenging. 
  • You only pay for the time your VA spends working on your tasks (to the second!). You won’t be funding coffee breaks, office gossip or quiet patches where your employee is just twiddling their thumbs.
  • Holiday pay and sick leave won’t affect you. If your VA can’t work, we’ll arrange for cover without an extra charge.
  • Hire a VA, and you won’t need to pay for desk space, laptops, national insurance, or pension contributions. You won’t even need to worry about performance reviews.
  • On the rare occasion that your VA isn’t meeting your expectations, we can quickly arrange for you to start working with another VA. There are no uncomfortable conversations, performance management or grievance procedures to worry about.
