About me

Hello, I’m Emma; a highly efficient and well organised, Virtual Assistant based in the New Forest. I'm here ready to help you free up your time so whether it’s HR or recruitment support, diary management, event support or anything else, you can consider it done!

I pride myself on being reliable, trustworthy and motivated with excellent communication skills. I work either remotely from my office or locally on site, depending on my clients’ needs. 

  • ‚ÄčI began my career in HR, overseeing all recruitment needs for the commercial side of a large travel company based in the South Coast. The role quickly evolved and I became more involved in HR related activities picking up employee relations and training and development
  • I then went on to become a PA to various high profile Captains within the cruise industry, this involved HR related tasks, event management, guest relations and general secretarial tasks whilst being lucky enough to travel to various locations around the world
  • After spending two years on cruise ships I was bitten by the travel bug so I spent the next two years in Australia where I was a PA to a family who owned three small businesses. I helped with the day to day running of the businesses including PA support, client visits as well as general and personal administrative tasks.
  • More recently I have been working for a family run business within the Engineering Sector as an HR Advisor, this role included generalist HR advice and support to the business owners, process improvement, recruitment and retention, and payroll.

Having my two daughters made me realise that I wanted the flexibility of being my own boss. After building up 15 years worth of experience in various roles and sectors I decided to put my skills to better use and help a broader variety of businesses and families. This would then allow me to have the work life balance I have always desired and that is the reason Emma Clark VA was created.
