Virtual assistant

Do you feel weighed down by administrative tasks?
Overwhelmed by the constant flow of emails and paperwork?
Are you struggling to keep up with social media, CRMs and new software?

If you’ve ever wished you could spend less time working IN your business and more time working ON your business, now you can.

Hi, I’m Carmel Bond. I’m an award-winning Executive Assistant and administration expert with over 15 years’ experience. I love making life easier for busy professionals, and helping businesses perform at their best.

I’ve helped some of Melbourne’s leading companies and entrepreneurs manage a mountain of administrative tasks, and now I’ve gone virtual. Hire me as your virtual assistant (VA) and let me sweat the small stuff, so you can get back to doing what you do best. 

What a VA does - and why you need one

In today’s digital world, there’s no need to hire an admin professional to work in your office. And, if you’re like many fast-paced professionals, you don’t need an office at all. Perhaps you work from home, on the road, or from different locations. Or maybe you need someone to work on an ad-hoc basis, or for just a few hours a week. Either way, I can help.

As your VA, I can do anything an in-house EA, PA or admin manager would do. That means replying to emails, managing your calendar and invoicing clients. It also includes taking care of any online tasks, such as website maintenance, travel arrangements or event management. The only difference is, I do it remotely.

That means you can get the benefit of my vast experience and award-winning support, no matter where you are in the world. If you want a flexible, cost-effective solution for all your admin needs, I’m the VA you’ve been looking for. 

more About Me

Throughout the course of my career I’ve worked as an Office Manager, Department Secretary, Personal Assistant and Executive Assistant. I’ve worked across a wide range of industries and won many awards, including the prestigious Morris Jones Secretary/Assistant of the Year 2017, for which I received over 130 nominations. I have experience helping large corporate companies, small business and now, as a VA, sole traders, coaches and entrepreneurs.

I’m also the founder of Melbourne EA Group – an exclusive networking group for passionate EAs and PAs in Melbourne – and Mum to two little ones, Mia and Ethan.

With over 15 years’ experience under my belt, I know my way around an office (even if I’m not in one). I’m fast, affordable and easy to work with. Once you hire me as your VA, you’ll wonder how you lived without me.

So, what’s my weakness? Stationery. I’m addicted. Pens, notepads, post-it notes – I love it all. But, since I work virtually, you’ll never have to see my stash!

"Engaging Carmel to provide support with admin and project management tasks was the best business decision I made last year.  She’s incredibly efficient,  no fuss and makes the tasks that stand in the way of progress… easy.  She has effortlessly taken over our venue management, new client on boarding, documenting procedures and complex CRM automation.  Carmel loves a challenge and will not let a problem go until it is resolved.   And above all she is a delight to work with.
