Whether you’re a consultant in need of an Excel enthusiast or an agency owner in search of a number two to get your projects back in line, we want to know who you are and what you need from us.

Then we’ll get to work on putting together your new dream team – you’ll see a bespoke proposal land in your inbox, before getting to speak directly with the Virtalent VA we picked out for you.

Empowering Our People

We’re a people-powered business. So at Virtalent, we make a point to put our talented team on a pedestal – if they need something, they get it.

That’s the #Team Slack channel your VA can turn to for handy restaurant recommendations or useful software tips from their experienced colleagues.

Or the shared knowledgebase and carefully-crafted resources they can delve into, to level-up on how else to help you out. Or the direct line manager they can call on whenever they need to. The list goes on. And on. And on.

Because we know that the more we do for our team, the more value they’ll add to the lives of our busy customers.

The Little Things Add Up

Make no mistake: ours is a premium, fully-managed service. It just doesn’t come with a premium price tag.

Yet compare Virtalent to Time Etc and – at first glance – you might feel you’re playing “Spot The Difference”. We’re both stand-out support services with a talented team behind us.

But, like any puzzle worth solving, the key is in the detail. Calculate our prices and you’ll notice you save a few quid here. Get matched with a Virtalent VA and you’ll feel there’s an “extra something” there. Speak to your Client Success Manager and you’ll understand how just one person can make all the difference.

We think many little things can add up to make a big difference. Don’t you?

Your FAQs

Learn how Virtalent makes a Time Etc alternative.

It sounds too good to be true. Where do I check the facts?

Virtalent is not affiliated with Time Etc – we’re an alternative provider.

Time Etc certainly offer a high quality Virtual Assistant service, however, we’re passionate about what we do and think there are a few key differences between the two solutions:

  • Time Etc hires Virtual Assistants in the USA and UK, whereas we only hire UK-based VAs. We prefer to focus here only.
  • Time Etc has to manage a much larger team with many hundreds of VAs in it. This naturally leads to a very different end user experience for you.
  • Our stringent selection criteria asks new applicants for 8 years’ minimum experience working in relevant roles to that of a VA, whereas Time Etc asks for ‘2-3 years commercial experience’.
  • You can’t work with us for free. We’re humans, not software.
  • Our systems and processes are set up very differently.

All of the information we’ve gathered for this article is publicly available at the Time Etc website, web.timeetc.com, and can also be verified independently by contacting Time Etc directly.

Success Stories

What makes Virtalent stand out from Time Etc?

At Virtalent, we’re truly passionate about what we do. We’re on a mission to deliver the very best Virtual Assistant services that your hard-earned money can buy.

That means we do things differently from the competition. We’ve ditched the free trial so many VA companies offer, for starters.

Instead, we’ll have a short phone call together before expertly pairing you with your dream Virtual Assistant. Your bespoke proposal from Virtalent will contain our reasons why we handpicked that particular VA for your business and a copy of their professional profile.

Personality, industry experience, software skills… we get it. You need us to tick all of your boxes, not just some of them.

Then, if you’re happy, you get to speak directly to your prospective VA before making a final decision.

As a new customer, you’ll then be assigned a Client Success Manager who will help you get maximum impact out of our service.

It all matters and, long-term, our curated approach means you’ll save yourself heaps more time, energy and stress as a result!

Then there’s the holiday cover, the premium quality team members, the great value rates… we don’t want to blow our own trumpet, but we stand out because we offer you a little more where it counts.
