Andrea Archer, founder of Assistopia

Honest, Reliable and Friendly

Not all virtual assistants provide the same level of service and professionalism. However, with Assistiopia you always get the professional admin support you need, and with a smile! As a virtual assistant based in Derby, Andrea is used to working with local businesses, sole traders and SME’s, as well as working with other businesses that are further afield within the UK.

At Assistopia, working with a virtual assistant doesn’t always mean you are restricted to working remotely. Being a virtual assistant in Derby means that other Derby-based companies can benefit from in-person office support from Assistopia where needed, as Andrea is often invited to work on-premise or to attend team meetings where appropriate.

Office Support Without Boundaries

Whilst based in Derby, the office support Assistopia provides is not limited to a specific location and being a virtual assistant means that businesses, sole traders and SME’s from any part of the UK can utilise the business support services Assistopia provides.

Whether you’re a business based in Cambridge looking for support with credit control; a plumber from Essex who needs help with their invoicing or a Managing Director of a SME in Edinburgh who desperately needs social media marketing, Assistopia has got you covered.

So if you need a virtual assistant who can provide office support without boundaries, then look no further than Assistopia and Andrea.


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!

Owen Conti, Managing Director of Code 56
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.
