All businesses have administration tasks that are crucial to their smooth running . These are those crucial, unseen ‘nuts and bolts’ tasks that hold a business together helping to ensure you are able to delivering to your clients. 

It isn’t always necessary for you to be doing these tasks yourself – if you want to excel at what you do, you shouldn’t be doing them either.

This is where a Freelance PA/VA can come in handy. They manage those back-office administrative tasks for you, letting you focus on delivering what you’re good at your core business.

So if you’re wondering what types of “nuts and bolts” administration your freelance PA/VA should do for you, here’s a quick breakdown of each.

Proactive planning

You know where you want to go, in terms of your business goals, but do you know how to get there? It can be incredibly helpful to have access to a Freelance PA or VA who can provide you with insight and support to help you reach your goals. Whether they’re researching suitable software solutions or creating a shortlist of suitable venues for your next event, they can take your idea or goal and get proactive in making it happen.

Travel and accommodation administration

Travel is often an essential element of doing business. But it can be a costly one too! So why not let a Freelancer do what they can to help you cut those costs down? A good VA/PA will research and plan your next business trip or break away for you, including booking accommodation and flights and planning your itinerary.

Appointments and calendar management

If there’s one thing that’s going to lead you to feel overwhelmed, it’s a constantly full calendar! Appointments are a necessary part of doing business, but that doesn’t mean they should take over your entire working day. You still need time to focus on those tasks that matter. So why not hand over the management of your calendar to a VA or PA? They can ensure it’s handled well and isn’t overflowing with appointments, as well as ensuring you have time to travel between appointments, additional breathing time throughout your week and slots for you to get some focused work time in your day.

Family administration and work life integration

And let’s not forget the importance of personal and work life integration. You need to ensure family appointments are booked and added to your calendar, as well as making sure your family knows where you are and how to get hold of you, especially if you’re travelling away. A VA can manage this all for you, as well as ensuring you don’t forget those important birthdays and celebrations (and have suitable gifts ready to go too!).

A Freelance PA/VA can be the glue that holds your business together, especially with those unseen tasks that are automatically completed during the running of your business. Handing over administrative tasks such as those listed above can help free up your time and also ensure it’s handled well and completed to a high standard.
