Hi, I’m Lucy Demuth and I am a Virtual Assistant! I live in Devon with my husband and two Siamese cats. I go to the gym regularly, love eating out (hence the gym visits!) and when I want to relax I enjoy watching films or reading a juicy crime thriller.
I’ve had an exciting career in small, local companies and international blue chip ones as well as in the public sector, so bring a depth and breadth of experience to my Virtual Assistant business, and I’d like to think that any business – large or small – can call on me for my Virtual Assistant service.
At the age of 17, I started work in admin at a local agricultural machinery business, before moving on to work as Site Secretary at a Civil Engineering company. Two years later I joined a printing company as an account handler liaising with various clients including leading electronic manufacturers.
My experience here prepared for my next position as a PA to the Finance Director at an international blue chip organisation where, amongst my numerous duties, I managed travel schedules, organised national conferences and briefing meetings with MPs. I also received an award for actively demonstrating team building behaviour. I had an exciting, challenging and rewarding seven years at one of the world’s most famous companies, and I gained immeasurable knowledge about the role of an executive assistant.
My next move was to the public sector as Executive Office Manager at the largest hospital trust in the south west peninsula. In this role I provided executive support to the Chief Executive and Chairman. It has been some of the most rewarding work I have done, but felt the time was right to branch out on my own and so I decided that providing a Virtual Assistant service was my perfect solution: I could draw on all my extensive professional experience to provide businesses of all sizes in any location, with a reliable support service.
Former employers and clients tell me that I am:
- Friendly and loyal
- Organised, dedicated and conscientious
- A good listener, discreet and calm under pressure
- Self-motivated, flexible and proactive
- A good communicator
