The Full Story


About Me

Claire Chatterton, Virtual Assistant

You started your business because you wanted a better lifestyle for yourself and your family but find yourself spending too much time at work. Your to-do list is getting longer and you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. You don't know where to start and you're drowning in overwhelm, stress and mum guilt.

That's why I started this business. I'm a homebird at heart. I want to be at home with my family and I work with busy, spiritually aligned professionals who value their family time too.

Clear Skies VA provides administrative support services. Helping you grow your business and giving you back your free time so that you can focus on what's really important to you.

Why I'm different

I'm not your average VA. I don't want lots of clients. I'm looking for a few special relationships. I want to be the team member you never knew you needed until now. I'm here to get up, close and personal in your business. I'm the person who is going to lift that weight off your shoulders and give you the break you need.

For me, it's all about balance. I love to work but not at the expense of my family. I created this business to help you get your time back. To reconnect with your family and not be sitting hunched over your laptop in your evenings and on weekends.


Why me?

I'm the original super geek. I crave organisation and order and I get a kick out of ticking off tasks and turning chaos into order. If admin isn't your 'thing' it's like pulling teeth, minutes feel like hours. I have been doing administrative work since the early 1990s when I started out as an Office Junior for an IT Recruitment firm. I worked my way up to Team Secretary then Junior PA to the MD and then finally as an Administrator and Director-Level EA.

I've worked in Recruitment, Patent & Trademark Law, Private Client Law, the NHS, Charities and Nonprofits, and I like to keep my workload varied and interesting.

Here's what my clients say about me:

Jen Lawton MCIPS, Liberty Consulting Ltd

"Claire Chatterton is a great virtual assistant and is passionate about what she does! She always provided a high level of support for Senior Leaders and I have rarely come across real talent that stands out like Claire.

I had the pleasure of working with her at Working Links where she supported the Directors and Senior Leadership Team. Claire is able to handle, and deliver on time, multiple projects - nothing is ever too much for her. Claire's organisation skills and ability to juggle ever changing priorities are a true skill. Claire earns my highest recommendation."

Yvonne Finnigan AIEP, Learning & Development Specialist

"Although we only met once over approximately 2 years, Claire was a massive support to the team working out in the Middle East 3500 miles away. Nothing was too much trouble and Claire worked efficiently to help with meetings, events, travel arrangements and other challenges as they arose. Claire made me realise that efficiency has no distance limitations. Thank you."

Helen McArdle MBA, FCIPD, International Senior HR Management, UAE

"I worked closely with Claire when I was a business partner to the International unit within Working Links. Claire's role became more than a PA to the International Director due to her capability, skill and her instinctive manner to be organised. Claire assistant in underpinning our international team with operational support, often out of hours, incurring time differences and on occactions stressful situations.

Claire became a key figure within the team, admired for her flexibility, consistency and importantly, confidentiality. Claire was my 'go-to person' to gather information, data and overall as an extremely dependable work colleague."

"I had the pleasure of working with Claire during our time at Working Links.

She is 'unflappable' has a calm head and can be relied on to deliver against tight schedules."
