All About… The Arts VA’s Rebecca

The latest VA to join our team is Rebecca. To help you get to know her, she explains her background and experience, and answers our quick fire questions.

What was your first job?

My first job was working part-time on a delicatessen in Safeways whilst I was at college. My older brother had a part-time job there and I started the day after I got my National Insurance card. It was a great introduction to the world of working and earning money.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I always wanted to work in a bank, no real reason why I just did. My grandma wanted me to become a mechanic like Kylie Minougue was in Neighbours.

When did you know you wanted to be a VA?

Having a background of over 20 years in an office environment, I wanted to bring my skills into the workplace. I have worked in a variety of industries - utilities, a uPVC door manufacturers and aerospace manufacturing.

What is your favourite theatre memory?

Watching the pantomime growing up has been part of our childhood.

What do you like about being a virtual assistant?

The variety of tasks and clients. Every task is different and no two days are the same.

They are normally consumed by my son's football training and matches.

Favourite food?

I love fish and vegetables so anything with either

Favourite tipple?

Best way to relax?

Going for a walk.

Three words to describe you?

Organised, strong, happy.

Last supper?
