WHY WORK WITH US?
Since 2015 we have helped hundreds of busy entrepreneurs lead more productive lives. From start ups to small teams at established companies, we provide assistance quickly and efficiently with very reasonable financial and contractual terms. Find out why we are fast becoming the UK’s number one supplier of high-quality virtual assistants.
No freelancers. Only highly-trained, full-time employees.
Your dedicated, perfectly matched virtual assistant is fully trained and ready to jump into your business and personal life from day one. You can message, phone or email them directly at any time just like a freelancer or in-house office assistant. However, unlike an office-based assistant or freelancer, should they be sick, on holiday or lacking skills you need for a specific task, you have the full cover of our experienced team to fall back on. With AVirtual you get a lot more than just one dedicated assistant.
The perfect fit
We have a wide range of virtual assistants for you to choose from ensuring the perfect fit without any recruitment fees. In a rush? We can normally get you matched up and ready to go within 24 hours.
World-class quality at extraordinary prices
Our Cape Town base allows us to provide industry-leading service quality at prices which are lower than any other provider in the UK market. Our virtual assistants have English as their first language and years of international experience, having worked for companies like Audi, Condé Nast and Savills, and they’re just 1 hour ahead of GMT.
Access to a team of experts
Why work with lots of different freelancers? Your virtual assistant has full access to our team of experts in fields like content creation, design and website management. All included in one simple package and at one price.
We back the quality of our work with guarantees for everything we do. Find out more about how we guarantee quality.
Peace of Mind
We give you peace of mind through our 30-day money back guarantee, quality assurance guarantees and task insurance.
WHY CAPE TOWN?
AVIRTUAL’S OPERATIONAL TEAMS ARE BASED IN SUNNY CAPE TOWN. WHY?
Most of the AVirtual team have spent several years in the US, UK and Europe before returning to their native South Africa.
Just 1 or 2 hours time difference.
In the UK summer it’s 1 hour, in winter Cape Town it’s 2 hours ahead of the UK.
Fibre optic connectivity, world-class data centres, robust transport – all contribute to a reliable quality of service.
English first language
Our team all have perfect English language, some with a touch of a (rather charming!) South African accent.
“I always thought that a VA would need a lot of management, but AVirtual’s clear communication, efficiency and ability to anticipate and adapt has convinced me that it’s a must for anyone who is time-poor and needs a fast but sustainable solution.”Hayley Elias
