Happy New Year

We'd like to wish you a very Happy New Year and we hope the start of 2014 has found you all relaxed after a well-earned Christmas break.

We ended 2013 on a very big high, having spent the year working towards our business plan (with a few strategic diversions along the way!) and whilst it was a whirlwind year, we've left it behind feeling rather proud of the achievements of Kaleidoscope Executive PA Services - both in how well our ever growing team has come together and in how we have been able to use our fantastic skills to provide a first class service.

Kaleidoscope is recruiting

If you’re an experienced PA looking for a flexible, challenging new opportunity, you could find it with Kaleidoscope.

We’re now recruiting self employed part-time executive Virtual Assistants to work alongside the established Kaleidoscope team. The business has been providing high level executive support to clients for several years now, and we’re growing the business and the team along with it.

What makes a Virtual Assistant executive?

There are many types of Virtual Assistant, but a Kaleidoscope Executive Virtual Assistant is unique. The main reason for that is that word, ‘executive’, which refers not just to the type of work we do, but the way we do it and the people we do it for.

A self-employed non-executive director or management consultant – our main clients – is working at a very high level, and usually dealing with executives in large corporate organisations. All of their clients have professional PAs running their diaries – and we believe our clients should have exactly the same service.

Business peer support is the way forward

I’m delighted to report I’ve just joined the Alternative Board.

It’s a professional coaching and consultancy network, comprising business leaders who get together monthly to share tips and help solve particular problems in each others’ business.

It’s well structured, quite formal and very practical and results-focused, so I’m really looking forward to getting on board with it. As we propel Kaleidoscope to its next stage in business growth, I’m keen to apply a bit more pressure to myself to set goals and be accountable for working towards them!

Kaleidoscope is four years old!

Happy birthday to Kaleidoscope!

We’re raising glasses to the little one’s birthday at the new Kaleidoscope headquarters in York, which is also our new home, as we moved house last week.

Today is my first day back at work and, apart from a few technical hiccups, both myself and the business are settling in well.

It hardly seems real that almost four years ago to the day I left my job as PA to the finance director at Northern Rail in York. That happened on a Friday in late March and on the following Monday, Kaleidoscope was launched.

Virtual Assistant goes back to school

I’m going back to school in a few weeks!

I’ve become involved in the Young Enterprise project for primary schools, which is a volunteer programme open to anyone who would like to help inspire young people aged between 4 and 25 to learn and succeed through enterprise.

It’s based on  the need to expand children's learning beyond the curriculum. The volunteers are there to help with passing on essential life and work skills through topics and stories covering work, saving, earning, decision-making and teamwork. The older students create and run real companies with help from business mentors.
