Your business is our passion and we treat everyone as an individual. Always looking for the most cost effective way to support you.
When people hear the term ‘Virtual Assistant’, they often conjure up an image of some sort of robotic, android like humanoid from a far away sci-fi laden realm. Here at I’m Your P.A this is most definitely not the case.
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to you all. We want you to get to know the real us, warts and all.
Michele Ibbs- Managing Director
I’m Michele and I head up I’m Your P.A. having started the business in 2007.
My background was originally nursing and then I spent many years in sales before moving into steel treatment, setting up two successful steel processing companies. All the skills I have learnt over the years have been used at I’m Your P.A. - from knowing the importance of dealing with phone calls to ensure the caller has their expectations managed, to sales, customer service calls and setting up systems to allow us to work remotely with our clients.
I can honestly say that I never had such a fun and challenging job as working with the I’m Your P.A. clients - every day is completely different and my greatest satisfaction is watching the businesses of our clients develop and grow, as they grow so do we. I have a passion for helping people - probably comes from the old nursing days, so if I can help any of you with my contacts - please just ask.
Jo Bevan- Office Manager
My name is Jo and I am the office manager, I have been working with Michele since July 2011. I have a 3 year old son Jack and have been married for 5 years. Prior to joining I’m your P.A. I was a nursery manager but chose to leave following the birth of my son. Within my previous role it gave me plenty of experience in customer service skills and the knowledge of how to run a business. This meant when I joined I’m your P.A. I was able to settle straight in to the role of being the organiser of the group. I manage our client’s diaries, schedule tasks and keep on top of incoming emails and requests from our clients.
Jayne King- Virtual Assistant
My name is Jayne King and I have been working for I’m your PA for 2 months. I am a 44 year old married mom of 2 children Ben 13 and Laura 17. I have had 27 years experience of office and administration work having previously worked in the claims department for an insurance company for 22 years. In the last month I have taken on the Debt chasing for 3 of our clients, there has been some encouraging positive feedback. I enjoy this part of my job as it is a challenge and I have a sense of achievement when payment is made.
Lianne Bayley-Saad- Virtual Assistant
A big hello to you all, my name is Lianne and I am the ‘newbie’ here at I’m Your P.A. I might be new to the role but what I lack in experience I make up for in personality. I recently graduated from university where I completed a BA Hons Degree in early childhood studies and education. After achieving this goal I decided to do a complete 360 and set myself a new and exciting challenge. Fortunately for me I made one of my best decisions to date, I thoroughly enjoy working here at I’m your P.A and I am surrounded by amazing individuals. Other than completing the general duties associated with the role I also work alongside Kirstee on the marketing front.
Kirstee-Leigh Branston- Apprentice
My name is Kirstee-Leigh (I’m the baby of the office) and I adore working for I’m Your PA. Why? I hear you ask, we are a dedicated team of 5 and have been praised more times than i can count on the amazing job we do for our clients. I started working for I’m your PA in March 2013 after leaving a receptionist position at a plumbing and heating company. I have found I have a niche for property maintenance and dealing with trade’s people.
