helping you run your life

Try as we might, it's difficult to avoid our working life impacting on our personal life. Sometimes, it seems as if there just aren't enough hours in the day.

Do you return home from work after the dry-cleaners, the garage and the shops have shut? Do you spend your weekends catching up on domestic chores, only for Sunday evening to roll around all-too-soon? Would you like some of your free time back?

Wouldn't it be great to have someone you can call, who you can trust to make the arrangements for that dinner party next week, who can collect your dry-cleaning, who will organise your holiday arrangements?

Virtual Girl Friday loves a to-do list! From collecting parcels from the Post Office to letting the plumber into your house and overseeing their work, Virtual Girl Friday offers a comprehensive array of lifestyle management and concierge services to busy professionals in the South East Kent region.
By helping you tick the things off your to-do list, we give you your free time back, so your evenings, weekends and bank holidays can be spent with friends, loved ones or by yourself if that's what you need.

Virtual Girl Friday gives you a tailored lifestyle management and personal concierge service. We can source, manage and organise almost anything, including:

Sourcing plumber, workmen, cleaners and electricians.
Booking theatre tickets and restaurant reservations.
Organising, sourcing and planning party details.
House and animal sitting and security for holidays or business trips.
Sourcing and finding presents, sending flowers and sending corporate gifts and cards.

There isn't space to list everything Virtual Girl Friday can do! Think of us as a domestic PA. Why not call us today to discuss how we can help you run your life more efficiently?
I simply don't know where I'd be without Virtual Girl Friday!

about me

Hannah Grover, the founder of Virtual Girl Friday, is a highly organised PA and Company Secretary who's worked in various administrative management roles since 2005.

She is experienced at dealing sensitively with personnel, covering contracts, disciplinary issues, targets, incentives and absences.

testimonials

It's all well and good listening to us talk about how good we are. This is what some of our happy clients have to say about the team @ Virtual Girl Friday...

As a professional entertainer, I need to focus on just one aspect of my job, namely delivering a great performance every time. Thanks to the services of Virtual Girl Friday, that is exactly what I can do, in the sound knowledge that they will take care of the rest. I leave them to deal directly with my agent, taking enquiries and making bookings, liaising with clients, collecting my fees, promotions and marketing, and even dry cleaning on occasions. I would highly recommend their mix of services to any small business.

I run a franchise supplying to small and medium customers in the local area and so, for me, time on the road selling products is the key to my success. I use Virtual Girl Friday so I can focus on selling alone. They help to chase my debtors, deal with my banking and suppliers, as well as helping me with sales forecasting and planning spreadsheets. I simply don't know where I'd be without them, but I know that farming out these tasks has helped to contribute towards me achieving my business goals.

Hi Hannah, Wow, I can't believe it! That's great, why didn't I call you before, I'm so grateful.
Lucy Newing, Dr Hauschka
I find 'bad-payers' one of the trickiest aspects of freelancing. I have asked Hannah at Virtual Girl Friday to help me chase payments several times and she has always been successful (even when my own efforts have failed). One email from Hannah brings about more action from clients than 10 emails from me! Hannah is my secret weapon (well I guess the secret is out now...!)
Nicola Joyce, Freelance copywriter www.nicolajoyce.co.uk
Thank you Hannah for your continued great level of service you and your team provided us. The quality of returned transcription is flawless. Modern technology enables me to send dictation files directly to you from wherever I am, and on occasions, the completed transcript has arrived before my next day in the office.
Great service, to be continued...

Since 2006, Hannah at Virtual Girl Friday has efficiently (and with good humour!) run my personal and financial life whilst I have been travelling. She has looked after my rental properties, which has included advertising, organising and attending viewings, running through rental agreements with tenants, project managing improvements to the properties, producing inventories and rent collection.
She has managed all my correspondence for me whilst I have been away and dealt with any urgent financial and personal decisions on my behalf. She communicates regularly and concisely and is excellent at taking instruction; her superb time management and organisational skills have meant that I have been able to enjoy my travels with minimal interruptions. You will not find a more trustworthy and efficient Virtual PA - Thank you, Hannah. Long may our relationship continue!
Kate, Hythe, Kent.
