SUPPORTING UK VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS
SVA was formed in 2005 by a group of 7 Scottish virtual assistants who wanted to improve the reputation of the industry - it quickly mushroomed into the largest organisation for UK based VAs with over 1,600 members. Our aim is to help virtual assistants set up and stay in business by encouraging and supporting one another whilst promoting best practice in the VA industry.
Being run by actual VAs rather than those who get their income from coaching or specialist services, we're able to give real advice about issues that frequently crop up - how to get more virtual assistant clients, what equipment virtual assistants use, how to deal with client issues...
"Caroline, who runs the fabulous Society of Virtual Assistants (SVA), is the very reason why I became a VA in the first place, after reading her article in the Office Secretary magazine"
"The SVA has been a constant source of inspiration and information. It has been my pleasure over the years to welcome new VAs aboard, and to meet up with some of them."
"The Society of Virtual Assistants is an excellent resource which helps new & existing VAs, the support & advice I have received since joining them back in 2006 has been invaluable."
