Nice to virtually meet you!
My name is Sophie and I am the Founder and Director of Eastop-Scopes Virtual Assistants;
loving all things admin, with specialist knowledge in Social Media and Marketing.
A little about Sophie Eastop-Scopes
I am predominantly based in Surrey and South West London, living with my husband and son.
Being a mum to a little old boy means I have acquired a love of the outdoors, am swimming in football cards and stickers, and know the names of more dinosaurs than I ever imagined I would; and I wouldn’t swap it for anything in the world!
My career as a Virtual Assistant enables me to utilise my skills, experience and Business Management degree (2:1 with The Open University), without sacrificing the level of flexibility and presence I want as a mum.
I have over 15 years experience in customer service and business administration based roles with a background in hospitality, marketing, events organisation, the private sector and education.

Finalist for the Kingston Borough Business Awards in 2021 and 2023.
I have worked closely with start-up and small businesses my whole career and I love seeing how ambition and dreams can become big successes in reality. I am honoured to be a part of

Our Vows to You
The vowels are our vows
It is hugely important to us that regardless of the tasks you outsource to your VA, that your voice and passion remain integral to everything we do.
We will advise authentically and honestly on all services, and write content in a way that truly reflects you and what you do.
The efficiency your business will gain from having a Virtual Assistant by your side will enable you to do all the things you didn't have the time for. Save time, money and grow your business of your dreams, rather than having to work in it all the time.
We promise to always treat you and your business with the upmost respect and honesty.
All fees are agreed in advance, and all decisions regarding the services we provide you are made jointly and honestly; so no scary surprises.
We know small businesses have a lot of expenses, and so we aim to work with software and strategies that you can rest assured are affordable in the long-term. As Organic Reach Specialists we only provide organic social media support.
When you welcome us into your business and team, we become united with your goals, aspirations and hopes. We become your accountability partner and sounding board; helping you to provide your clients with the best customer experience possible.
What we do
We are passionate about becoming a helping hand to small businesses and enabling them to grow with the support of a virtual assistant, social media manager and/or marketing assistant.
Eastop-Scopes Virtual Assistants offer secretarial, administrative, marketing, social media and events support to businesses; and domestically where relevant.
But what is a Virtual Assistant (VA)?
A VA is a PA who works remotely on tasks delegated by you. VA’s are not a member of your staff and so you do not have to worry about sick pay, holiday pay or long-term contracts. The tasks you would delegate to one of our VA's, often don’t warrant hiring a full-time, permanent member of staff for; hence the beauty of hiring a VA.
VA’s can help reduce the stress and free up time that particular aspects of your business demand, so that you can focus on building the business of your dreams.
There may be a particular area of your business that you find challenging; or one that causes you stress; or simply one that takes up too much of your time. This is where we can offer support. From data entry to social media management; from organising events to conducting market research; we can support your business whilst you are busy growing it.
We offer hourly rates, retainers, packages and and bespoke quotes depending on what you need and your budget.
