Vernon's Virtual PA - Secretarial and Admin Services for companies and organisations across the UK

PA Services for the busy executive

About Us

About Us

Vernon’s has been established with the specific purpose of providing remote PA/secretarial services.  Our key principles are to provide a swift, efficient, reliable, accurate, confidential and cost-efficient service to the client.


Modern business practices often no longer require a PA/secretary insitu.  Through modern communication and IT infrastructures it is now possible and highly beneficial to outsource the PA/secretarial functions within an organisation.


  • Flexibility - PA/secretarial services provided to meet your needs/timescale, ie work undertaken outside of the normal working day/week
  • Considerably increased benefits - the ability to dramatically reduce business overheads
  • You only pay for the time and services you actually utilise, with no commitment to provide regular work to Vernon’s Virtual PA
  • References available on request

What we do

Vernon's Virtual PA is not an agency offering temporary staff.  Rather Vernon's may be regarded as a valuable addition to your support staff team, minus all of the associated employer on-costs.

Vernon's has been set up with the express purpose of assisting business through the provision of remote secretarial/PA services on a 24/7 basis (including bank holidays).

Vernon's PA

Exactly how does this work?

  • Secretarial work is primarily undertaken using digital dictation received by Vernon's/returned to your company via electronic mail or Dropbox.
  • Normal turnaround times – we will ensure to return your work within 24-hours from time received for transcription of digital dictation and/or copy typing. Urgent work – please identify this to us before sending the work through and we will both advise on projected time of return and do everything possible to return this to you as quickly as possible dependent on the length of, for example, the digital dictation voice file (as a guide, 15 minutes’ of dictation will on average take one hour to transcribe).
  • A copy typing service is also provided – documents received in pdf format and produced in, for example, Word or Excel to your requirements.

What about confidentiality?

  • Vernon's current client list includes independent financial advisors, countrywide surveyors' practices, whilst also having historically undertaken work for a small locally based charity and solicitors' practices. Thus, Vernon's is well versed in the need for, and requirements of, maintaining strict confidentiality and the protection of data. (Please see also our terms and conditions via the link below).
