The need for business support is not always constant or planned, TidyDesk provides a flexible, reliable and professional VA service specialising in sales, marketing and design that is available as and when you require.

Working with a VA will free up your time to allow you to focus on what you do best. You may need help with a single project or event, have piles of tasks to get through, or you may wish to attract new business.

Lucy Joyce, Virtual Assistant

A graduate in Marketing Design, my experience in sales, marketing and admin spans more than 16 years across a diverse range of industries including publishing, design and print, automotive, recruitment, banking and leisure.

Having spent much of my career working within small businesses I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to get involved in all elements of business support from sales and marketing to procurement, accounts and HR. With extensive contract experience both in the UK and overseas, my capability for adapting smoothly to new ground is well-honed.

I began working from home after having my two sons and set up TidyDesk in 2013 having realised the demand for ad-hoc business support particularly by smaller businesses. Alongside managing my boys – including my husband, and a little triathlon hobby – it is needless to say I possess some sharp multi-tasking skills and energy!
