Virtual PA gets physical in Leamington Spa

Ask Avril 2

Leamington Spa-based business, Ask Avril, is moving into brand new premises on Jenton Road. The virtual personal assistant (VA) service, founded by Avril James, is making the move to accommodate its growing team.

Having started out with a kitchen table enterprise, Ask Avril has had a whirlwind of a year in 2019 being named a finalist in the Independent VA of The Year awards, and the new office is the latest in a series of steps to expand the business’ operations.

The new office in Commonwealth House, Jenton Road, will also play host to the newest face on the Ask Avril team, Helen Stenton. Helen will hit the ground running, supporting with the bespoke administration services Ask Avril provides to businesses of all types, from theatres and recruitment agents, private landlords and psychologists through to golf pros and accountants.

Avril James commented: “2019 already feels like such an exciting year for me and getting to welcome Helen to join me in our new office is just the icing on the cake. I know she’ll be a great fit for Ask Avril and will help us to continue to provide an outstanding service to our clients in Leamington and beyond.

“The modern world moves so quickly that often small business owners find themselves stretched to breaking point trying to keep all the plates spinning at once. That’s where Ask Avril comes in! By outsourcing tasks to a virtual assistant, business owners can make sure their focus is on what really matters: developing their own company.”

Ask Avril is also a founding member of the Warwickshire Virtual Assistant Network, a collaborative group of 13 local VAs established to provide experienced and reliable services to businesses across the county.
