How can I support you?

Andrea Archer, founder of Assistopia

I’m Andrea, founder and business owner at Assistopia. As a Virtual Assistant based in Derby, I can help you free up your time by providing you with valuable office support, managing those admin tasks that are essential, but might not be the most efficient use of your time.

Assistopia can provide office support in a variety of ways, whether you want help with your finances, day-to-day admin, social media, organising events or something else, hiring a Virtual Assistant is a fantastic way of giving your business the support it needs without breaking the bank.

If you find you are distracted by day-to-day admin tasks and want that extra office support so you can focus on the core activities of your business, contact me for a free consultation and see how a Virtual Assistant can breathe life into your business.


I like to keep things nice and simple, so I charge a flat rate for ad-hoc admin support, which is charged in 15-minute increments.

When you need office support and hire a Virtual Assistant, you only pay for the hours worked and nothing more. There are none of the associated employee costs, such as National Insurance and pension contributions, holiday or sick pay, training or expense claims.

If you need a Virtual Assistant to provide on-going office support for more than 20+ hours per month, then one of my retainer packages may be more suitable. To discuss how my retainer packages work, please contact me.

Craig Barker, Koobr

Here at Koobr, we hired Assistopia and Andrea to assist with client communication, project management, CRM administration and many more things. Andrea also identified areas of the business where we could make more money, a task which resulted in generating income that more than paid for her role for a year.

We think of Andrea as an integral and essential part of our team, all of the staff love working with her!

One of the great things about working with Andrea is that she’s not just virtual – she attends team meetings, keeps herself up-to-date with our operational challenges and offers suggestions on how to help.

Andrea and Assistopia have been instrumental in improving our invoicing process significantly and now our credit control is actually under control thanks to her hard work. She even handles our tediously boring jobs quickly and with a smile too!

I’ve worked with Assistopia with 2 organisations and it is clear to see that Andrea is organised, dedicated and asks the right questions and can work autonomously with the ability to push on a project. She is diligent and demonstrates her experience time and time again. I would recommend!

Andrea helps me with research projects. She is friendly and professional and always delivers on time and to brief. By working with Andrea, I’m able to free up some of my time so I can expand what I’m able to do for my clients.

Assistopia and Andrea have been such a help to me and my business. Andrea is a self starter, flexible, approachable and extremely professional. I would not hesitate in recommending her and Assistopia to anyone.

When I looked for a virtual assistant in Derby, I came across Andrea from Assistopia and asked her to help me complete a complex digital administrative task that I was finding very time consuming. Andrea came to the table with a quick understanding of what needed completing, took full ownership of the task and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. Highly recommended.
