About Me | Alison Quinn | Virtual Assistant in Kent
Having established a successful career in Administration, Management and Leadership, I launched Alison Quinn Virtual Assistant in 2019 to share my knowledge and experience with others.

My background is in the Higher Education sector, particularly in the Creative Arts and Osteopathy specialisms. I spent over fifteen years working my way up from Administrator, to Academic Registrar.  I learnt a huge amount during this time and witnessed an enormous amount of sector change. Externally, this ranged from funding changes to political decisions.  Internally, this ranged from the introduction of new frameworks and changes in partner awarding bodies. These changes required flexibility, understanding, sensitivity and confidentiality.

During my time in Higher Education, I undertook training provided by The Institute of Leadership and Management. This enhanced my skills to create stronger and more productive teams. Stakeholders would comment what a wonderful job my team and I did. It was a huge accolade against the backdrop of change mentioned above.

Outside of Higher Education, I have worked with small businesses supporting them in a variety of areas. For example; branding and logo design, populating website content and supporting marketing campaigns.

I take great satisfaction in helping others achieve success. I provide a time-saving platform, where clients can offload tasks.  As a result, my clients have more time to spend doing what they do best!

As a Virtual Assistant, I have worked with clients in the areas of Compliance, Construction, Business Consultancy, Property Development, Higher Education and Health & Fitness.

I have a passion for helping people get things done in a smart and effective way. I add value by taking the hard work out of your administrative and managerial needs. Therefore, you can gain precious time to grow your business, reach your goals and most importantly, to find the work/life balance we all strive to achieve.

You can be assured of my Professionalism as I am fully registered with the Information Commissioners Office for GDPR compliance.

I hold comprehensive insurance with Policy Bee, including Public Liability Insurance.

I use a time management tool to record the amount of time I spend on your business and produce reports from this system which I attach to my invoice.
