Frequently Asked Questions

What is a virtual assistant?

A virtual assistant is the circulation system that keeps things pumping, whilst allowing you to be at the heart and head of your business. 

This might mean they take on small every day tasks, or even specific projects that you no longer have time to do yourself, or you don't have the expertise to do yourself, or you simply don't want to do yourself.

Contracting a virtual assistant may be the right thing for your business if you don't want to commit to taking on a full time or part time employee or if you don't have enough tasks for a full time or part time employee...but you do have too much to manage without some help!

You might decide to contract a virtual assistant for only a few months or it might be an ongoing relationship. Having a virtual assistant is all about flexibility and finding the right solution for your business.

Most virtual assistants work 100% remotely, but have regular catch ups with their clients. Your virtual assistant is likely to have a number of different clients that they dedicate their time to, but you will be able to agree on deadlines and priorities for your business and how you can work together for success. 

How can a virtual assistant help me?

Virtual assistants offer a wide range of services aimed at helping you get your business to the next level. 

Typical services include traditional secretarial services such as organising your meeting schedule and prioritising the emails in your inbox, but many virtual assistants also offer help with social media channels to ensure your business is engaging in a meaningful way with the customers you want. 

You can also find virtual assistants with technical expertise in areas such as marketing, bookkeeping, transcription and minute taking, and technical support. 

Whatever help you need, there is a virtual assistant out there for you.

How do I know my business is safe with a virtual assistant?

As a small business owner I understand how scary it can be to let someone else do important tasks for my business, but when it comes to the best use of my time and expertise it is often the right decision. 

In order to provide peace of mind to my clients and to protect both their businesses and mine I am a fully insured and compliant with data protection law.

I have the following in place:

  • Professional Indemnity Insurance
  • A competent data storage and backup plan
  • Appropriate terms of business
  • Appropriate policies

I am always happy to answer any questions about these policies and documents or any other concerns you might have.

How do I know my information is safe?

Like every business I take data protection extremely seriously and have taken steps to ensure that I am fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). 

The UK requires UK based companies to register with the Information Commissioner´s Office (ICO). As Helen May VA is not based in the UK, I am regulated by the Spanish equivalent of this office, Agencia Española Protección Datos (

Should you decide to contract my services you will be provided with copies of the relevant data policies and required to sign data processing forms where appropriate. 


Who I Am

Helen May

After nearly fifteen years organising Chief executives in London in communications and public affairs roles, I left the big city for a very small village in northern Spain where I’ve been helping Spanish executives manage their communications in English.

Whether in English or in Spanish I know how much small business owners worry about all the admin tasks that keep everything they’ve worked for going when they’d rather be focusing on what makes their businesses great.

If an in-house or permanent assistant isn’t the right thing for your business a virtual assistant can help.
