See Why Karina Chose Virtalent
Karina explains “I’d tried other Virtual Assistant systems before and really found them lacking. But when I found the Virtalent team, it just ‘clicked’!”
Same 5* Service, Different Price Tag
It’s widely-known that Boldly hires top staff and delivers an excellent service.
Yet the top reason why CEOs across the country are switching from Boldly to Virtalent is that their budget goes so much further with us. You get the same premium quality VA, the same professional level service standards, and it costs you over a third less.
That’s cash that can be spent on more support, which equals more time saved by you.
Proud To Be British
Virtalent is one of the only VA services in the UK that hasn’t set their sights on the States. Sure, our accountant thinks it’s tempting, but despite the rainy commute, we really quite like it right here in Blighty.
We don’t have US-based staff, nor team members spread across the Continent. We don’t want to take over the world.
Instead, we’re proud to operate right here in the UK, focused on supporting a cloud-based community of ambitious, growing businesses, both small and large.
It’s The Little Things
As well as getting an extra third out of your budget, there are a few added extras you’ll get by choosing Virtalent. That’s because our service is built for ambitious business owners, not blue chip execs. Growing a small business is hard. We get it.
With us, your hours will roll over if you happen to have a quiet month. With us, you’ll kick off the process by booking in a call directly into our diary – right away. With us, you’ll get a stack of information to help get you started with your new VA.
We know that when you’re already up against it, these little things can make a big difference.

Think big, spend small - we're a better Boldly alternative.
Maybe it’s the 6* VIP holidays she’s planned, or perhaps it’s the annual Time Inc. conferences she continues to co-ordinate – Georgina’s glowing 25-year career means it’s hard to pick out exactly what makes her such a vital part of our virtual team. Luckily we don’t have to!more details
Maybe it’s the BBC parties or perhaps it’s the BAFTA screenings – with two-decades of event planning and EA experience, it’s hard to know where to begin with Kate. She’s been there, done that and got the virtual t-shirt – meaning she can make a lasting impact on your day right from the start.more details
Nicola’s an accomplished EA and Virtual Office Manager of over 20 years. She’s worked in all manner of industries - including property and hospitality - in both London and Dubai. Nicola’s key skills lie in keeping growing, global teams organised and focused on the task at hand.more details

For the last 30 years, Clare has covered pretty much every area you’d expect an experienced VA to have worked in: from recruitment support to financial admin and entrepreneurship. She holds a CIM in Marketing and has worked as a Marketing and Operations Manager during her extensive career.more details

Content writing, social media management, meeting prep and travel booking are all well within her expertise.more details

Virtalent is not affiliated in any way with Boldly – we’re an alternative solution.
Like us, Boldly offers on-demand Virtual Assistant and PA services. However, the hourly rate we charge for our support comes in at over 30% less, depending on the monthly support plan you choose.

Use your favourite search engine and you’ll also find more results from the likes of industry website, Virtual Assistant Assistant.
Want more? You can find detailed case studies on real customers at Virtalent in our Success Stories.
Simply put, at Virtalent, you’ll get matched with the same high-calibre, premium Virtual Assistant as you would at Boldly, but you won’t pay through the nose for the privilege.
That means your new hire will still have heaps of experience, will still be carefully vetted and you’ll still get access to an Account Manager (we call ours Client Success Managers), but you’ll pay at least 30% less per month for that support.
That means you can either choose to spend the budget you’ve saved on other useful stuff, or you can get stacks more support from your new Virtual Assistant (and save even more time and energy every week!).
The first step is to tell our team a little about you and the support you’re looking for.
A structured 20-30 minute consultation call means we can discuss your needs together and you can ask any questions you might have.
Then, if you’d like us to, we’ll use the notes we make on the call to carefully match you with the most suitable Virtalent VA we have available for you. We’ll look at everything from their personality and professional background, to personality and software skills. It all matters!
We’ll send you a bespoke proposal within 24 hours and you can then speak directly with our recommended VA, before making your decision.

SEO Consultant (Marbella) I've been very impressed with Virtalent. Over the years I've worked with various UK Virtual Assistant agencies and Virtalent is by far the best. Nearly all of my clients are UK based, so having a highly educated assistant from the UK makes a big difference. Someone who not only understands the language but also the culture and mentality has really made a big difference. Being on the same timezone is a big plus as well. Highly recommended to anyone looking to hire for a Virtual Assistant agency you can trust.BOOK A FREE CONSULTATION
Director, ALO Solutions Clare had been with me four weeks, had a late paying client who my accountant said I needed to write off – Clare spoke to them once and the bill was paid! When first matched with her, she was just brilliant - she told me all the things she’d done – from her experience in Xero and invoicing I knew it would be fine, it’s also about understanding how you would work together. It’s good to have a fresh pair of eyes to look at everything and see how it’s done.BOOK A FREE CONSULTATION
