Jen Workman, Virtual Assistant and Founder and Owner of Business Owl

Who we help

We are a team of legal professionals. As Virtual Assistants, we also run our own businesses. This unique combination makes us perfectly placed to support clients in the legal and small business sectors.

The legal sector

As a team comprised of former Legal Executives and Paralegals, we know what it takes to make a law firm tick. We use our expertise to support sole practitioners, consultant solicitors, small law firms and other professionals linked to the legal sector. Read more about our work with the legal sector…

Professionals & small businesses

Our small business clients range from sustainability consultants and career coaches to a garden nursery and a flooring company. Our extensive services help a wide variety of business owners, whether you are looking to save time or money (or both!). Read more about our work with professionals and small businesses…

Specific projects

We manage projects for a number of clients. Project management tasks can often derail business owners from the work that only you can do in the business. We have the skills and expertise to manage projects throughout their lifecycle.

Jen came onboard at a very challenging and chaotic time and I’m delighted by how quickly she grasped what needs to be done. It takes the pressure off me to have the support of a reliable and safe pair of hands. It’s a bonus that she enjoys gardening!

Vanessa Cook, Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens & Nurseries

I was impressed by Jen’s professionalism, friendliness and efficiency; when enquiring about Business Owl services, she anticipated my questions and concerns. On the first assignment, I asked Jen to assist at short notice, and she was able to accommodate – thank you.

Waheeda Joomun, W J Property Law Limited

Jen is exactly what we were looking for – someone who understands busy professionals and the many competing demands on their time. Jen keeps us organised, arranges our meetings, ensures we follow up on commitments, and manages our website. She is completely reliable. What more could you want?!

Nigel Haddon, Mosaic Legal

Jen is a complete breath of fresh air within my company. Every time I’ve felt overwhelmed or needed assistance, she has been available to assist me. Her drafting is accurate and attention to detail is excellent. Jen spends time getting to know your business and offers advice on how she can best help as a virtual assistant. She is practical, always calm and simply gets on with her tasks. Highly recommend taking on Jen as a Virtual Assistant. It frees up your time in your business – it’s the best thing I did connecting with Jen.

Sharon, Your Will Made Easy Limited

I cannot recommend Michelle highly enough. She recently project managed our internal CRM project, which was complex, integrating many different internal systems and communicating with all stakeholders. Michelle is down to earth and finds pragmatic solutions when problems arise.

Nicola Moore-Miller, Jayva Global

Jen is a gem of a find! She is passionate about what she does and takes the time to get to know you so that her work can accurately reflect your personality and business. I recommend her unreservedly.

Louise Duffus, MLD Events

Jen really cares about her work and I have enjoyed working with her for the last few months. She takes away my admin so I can focus on client work and growing the business. Jen is efficient, picks things up quickly and is easy to work with.

Jane Barrett, The Career Farm

I was introduced to Jen by a colleague and she has proved a life saver.

Andrew Roberts, Association of Law Firm Merger Advisors

Jen quickly understood my target audience and worked with speed and accuracy to produce a piece of work beyond my expectations. I’m already starting to see the fruits of her labour and am hopeful of a steady increase in sales as a result. A job well done and I’ll definitely use Jen again – an asset to any business.

Matthew Dent, Fertile Fibre

I was drawn to Jen’s warm approach when we had an initial discussion over the phone. She is very thorough with a great eye for detail. She is knowledgeable with a high level of technical ability, frankly, one of the best assistants I have ever worked with. Jen is truly a safe pair of hands. I would highly recommend Jen and Business Owl to anyone looking for a top-notch assistant.

Victoria McLagan, English Wills and Probate Switzerland – EWPS

Jen has been a delight to work with and she has tackled jobs, when I didn’t know where to begin, with ease, taking a huge weight off my shoulders. She is an asset to any business.

Alison Jowett, Nature Cure Trust

Jen helped me out at pretty short notice with a complex appeal hearing. She was helpful and responsive getting the notes of the meeting done in a tight timescale and to a high standard. I’d definitely work with Jen again, she couldn’t have made it smoother.

Siobhan Clarke, HR Consulting

By contracting Jen, with her knowledge and expertise, it has been an extremely cost-effective way of taking Precious Flooring forward, and we would highly recommend her services.
