PVPA is a direct reflection of my own personality - loyal and trustworthy, with an inherent need to get the job done, on time and professionally.


I'm a good administrator and my career history spanning over 35 years proves this, having held senior positions of Administration Director, Company Secretary and Executive PA, predominantly in Executive Search (recruitment) and Finance. 


I'm dependable and persistent in my approach, with a very warm, engaging and personable style.  I'm a good communicator and enjoy building strong relationships with all around me.


I'm very practical, a great believer in common sense and very down to earth.  I'm not afraid of hard work and work well under pressure.  I enjoy looking after people and sorting out their business lives, making sense of chaos!  


I am based in Cookham, close to Maidenhead in Berkshire and either work remotely from my home office or offer onsite support if local.  Working remotely means that location is not an issue and I am able to offer my support services to both national and international clients.


All of my values are held with the utmost importance to me in providing a first class service for busy people, as and when they need it.

Julie is a great administrator; well organised, committed and passionate.  She was my Administration Director managing all aspects of the company’s systems, finances, human resources and administration.  She takes on responsibility, finds solutions to problems, is pro-active and builds strong internal and external relationships.  We worked together for over 20 years and I found her to be an invaluable member of the team, a great support to me personally and a pleasure to work with.

Julie is truly a fantastic person. I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Julie over the last twelve years or so where Julie has been Administration Director. Julie is extremely diligent and efficient in her work and has shown great skill and flexibility as the business has evolved in terms of size, shape and international scope. Julie can tackle problems head on and can navigate through administrative issues with great ease and professionalism.  One of Julie’s real strengths is her ability to engage and build relationships with all of those around her, whether this is the team, our clients or candidates alike.  Julie is great fun to work alongside and makes everything about being part a team or working with her one to one very special.  Julie is an asset to any business and I would have her in my team anytime...

Having worked with Julie for some 20 Years, I only have positive things to say. She has great integrity, a keen eye for detail and professionalism second to none. The projects we have worked on together have always been delivered with a true partnership approach with success to match. I would jump at the chance to work with Julie without hesitation.

Philip Stone

I have worked with Julie for almost 20 years on the company accounts and have always found her very conscientious, hard working and reliable, as well as being great to work with.  The work with me was mostly dealing with the bookkeeping, monthly management accounts and cashflow monitoring, but Julie also worked on credit control, invoicing, banking and all the other many aspects of the day to day running of the business.  I would certainly recommend Julie as a valuable addition to any company looking for assistance using her many years business experience.

I have known and worked with Julie for approximately 10 years. She was instrumental in ensuring that the IT function of The Nichols Consultancy ran smoothly, working with my company to anticipate problems and using good judgement to develop appropriate action plans or solutions. I found her to be very passionate about not just her role but also her company. Julie is a good communicator and built excellent relationships with my team. I wish her much success in her new venture as a Virtual PA and believe she has all the attribute to succeed.
