As a mother of 3 children, life as a project manager, and then a researcher was rather hectic. So I decided to put the skills I had learned from 20 years of working life into practise by becoming a freelance P.A. to help individuals and small businesses be the most efficient they can be, by outsourcing the time consuming admin tasks that prevent them from enjoying the more fun things in life, or concentrating on making their business a success.

Having worked managing projects throughout my working life, I am well skilled in taking on projects and running with them, whether they be helping you out in your home or your working life, I can make sure every detail is addressed, so you can pass any admin projects over to me and be confident that they will be completed accurately and on time.

"Emily Ballantyne of PA Pal has brought a breath of fresh air to my Training Business. Emily has brought new ideas and was very quick to gain full understanding of how my business worked and what was required to drive the business forward. Emily engaged 100% with my clients and target audience. I would recommend Emily wholeheartedly  to any future business that is thinking about taking Emily on."

Ray Johnston, Business Owner, School of Health and Safety 

"Emily is a dedicated professional, skilled in social platforms, design, Office 365, book-keeping and is also very nice to work with.  We’re happy to recommend her to anyone looking for a multi skilled virtual PA. "

Diane Morton, Director and Founder, Wag and Company 

"Emily is extremely efficient in all aspects of administration, she set up and manages social media accounts for my business which has had a significant impact on both my enquiries and my ability to communicate with clients and potential clients, I would thoroughly recommend her for any admin or social media duties you may require however large or small." 

James R Brown, MRICS

"Emily's interpersonal skills are second to none"

"Emily has project managed some complex campaigns with successful outcomes, this is due to her meticulous organisational skills and her ability to communicate with people on all levels"

"I cannot recommend Emily highly enough and wish her well for the future"

Zoe Farrington formerly of Fused Ltd. and RealRider Ltd.


Whether you are a busy person with a hectic home and personal life, or a business person struggling with the demands of work, a Personal Assistant can help.

I can help you become more organised, more efficient and have more time away from admin to either enjoy doing the fun stuff, or to concentrate on working smarter to make your business be the best it can be.

I am a conscientious, friendly, organised and trustworthy personal assistant, based in Northumberland, and I'm here to help free up your time by relieving you of those day-to-day tasks, leaving you to rest easy, safe in the knowledge that the job will be done right.


Small businesses and private individuals alike struggle to maintain their admin, and find managing paperwork a real drain on their time, time that could be more productively spent elsewhere.

I can help you keep on top of the day to day tasks many people often find difficult to manage, like admin and communications, filing, emails, paying bills, invoicing and much much more.


Social media seems to be one of the biggest forms of marketing in today's world. A virtual P.A. can work with you on content, visuals, post scheduling and more to help get your business more social media coverage.

I can create and manage social media campaigns across various platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more.


Many people struggle to keep on top of meetings, appointments, invitations, important personal dates and events. A personal assistant can efficiently manage all these things, so you never miss an event again.

I can help you become more organised, more efficient, and have more time on your hands by taking control of your diary, leaving you to 'work smarter' away from admin to either enjoy doing the things you enjoy doing, or to concentrate on making your business be the best it can.


Many people don't know where to start when it comes to marketing and advertising. A personal assistant can make the whole thing much less daunting, and can manage a marketing campaign on your behalf.

Having spent 15+ years working in a marketing environment, I have a wealth of experience I can use to help you market your business effectively and to the right audience, including strategy, media planning, creative briefing, copy writing and checking, social media and much more.


Project and event management are often time consuming tasks, which require lots of balls being kept in the air at once. If you are struggling to juggle everything, then a personal assistant can help ensure delivery of the project or event on time and within budget.

I have years of experience managing marketing and research projects, also house renovation projects and events such as weddings, parties, or corporate events, so am well placed to offer assistance in any projects you have on going.


The internet provides us with information on pretty much every product out there, but finding the right information can often be tricky. The internet also provides us with the tools we need to assess the market place for products and services.

Having spent 4 years working in a research environment I am well placed to be able to satisfy most research requirements, be they market research, product research or gift, travel/holiday research.


I offer a range of competitive prices, but can tailor the pricing for my services to suit the requirements of clients on an individual basis. If all you need is a few hours support, give me a call and we can discuss charges for ad hoc support.

Time is charged in 5 minute increments, so you are only ever billed for work done, and billed monthly. Additional charges may be added to cover postage, petrol, printing etc., as necessary.


If you are looking for ad hoc support, then you can take advantage of my competitive hourly rate


Price will vary depending on requirements. Minimum 3 months, unused hours can be carried forward for one month


Price will vary depending on requirements. Minimum 3 months, unused hours can be carried forward for one month



I'd love to hear from you

And because small businesses don't just operate between 9am - 5pm,

I can offer support after hours too.
