Caroline Wylie

Caroline is the “oldest” virtual assistant in Scotland. With a background in music and advertising, Caroline honed her virtual working skills working between London and Glasgow in her business Virtually Sorted which she established in 2004.
At that point, virtual assistance in the UK was a fledgling industry, so she worked with a collection of VAs to educate the business community about virtual working which grew rapidly into the Society of Virtual Assistants. SVA is the largest organisation of UK virtual assistants with nearly 3,000 active members, a forum, regular newsletters, the virtual assistant diary, industry research and regular features to help promote best practice in the industry.
Along the way she has specialised in providing virtual team solutions for a variety of different clients – charities, big teams, solopreneurs and of course SMEs. This included establishing best practice for virtual assistants and also virtual assistant trainers.
Along the way Caroline has lectured at various universities in the creative industries, appeared on conference panels, conducted workshops and presented at exhibitions such as office*, Strathclyde Business School and The VA Conference.
In her role as founder of SVA, she has previously judged the VA of the Year Awards, runs the UK VA Survey each year and is the UK representative of the world’s first virtual assistant certification programme, VAcertified.
Caroline lives in Glasgow, with her husband Craig, their two young children and her crazy Burmese cat. Her mantra remains “I must wear jeans to the office”.
