Executive Assistants 

What we do

Assistants From a Distance are two remote executive assistants (Penny and Nicole), and we help small businesses focus on their business needs by effectively managing their administration. Many business owners go into business thinking they’ll be doing what they love, but eventually find themselves stuck down the rabbit hole of endless admin. That’s where we come in, we can streamline the admin processes, from general diary to social media management and project support, so that small business owners can get on with the important task of running their business and doing what they love.

We understand the burden employment law and red tape can have on small businesses, so when you hire us, you needn’t worry about holiday pay, maternity leave, health care, pensions, sick pay as we are self employed with a 2 week cancellation policy. We like to be as flexible as possible as we understand the changing needs of small businesses from week to week.

There are two of us, so you effectively get 2 for the price of 1. With two, you’ll never need to worry about holiday or sick cover again as when one is off, the other seamlessly takes over.

Between us, we have 25 years executive assistant experience, working in the City for some of the world’s leading financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs. Although our backgrounds are primarily banking and finance, we have experience across multiple sectors, from events to regulatory finance.
