The name Virteffic comes from Virtual and Efficient.
Our Core Principles
Time is precious. Our goal is to be productive and deliver value for your money.
The information we are privy to will be kept strictly confidential at all times, and we will always act honestly, transparently, and respectfully. Our service agreements and employee agreements contain strict confidentiality clauses. We have invested in all the technology and software we need to operate securely and efficiently.
Communication about expectations about tasks, deadlines, and capacity is standard practice for us.
Virteffic’s logo consists of five circles, each representing a core principle centred around high-quality service.
Let Virteffic handle the day-to-day administration so that you can focus on growing your business.
Why and How
There is a recruitment crisis in the Channel Islands, whilst we also have a high number of ‘non-employed’ individuals. The high childcare costs disincentives women, in particular, from working full-time or working at all. By offering unique roles, we access a greater pool of people.
We work extremely hard to build a business model and strategy that genuinely puts employees first and provides opportunities for those who cannot commit to static working hours whilst cultivating an ethos of independence and flexibility. By entrusting everyone with complete flexibility to set their own hours and working environment, we have revolutionised how our business operates. As a result, Virteffic has experienced and qualified individuals with regulatory expertise from lengthy careers in the Channel Islands finance industry. The working model creates much better morale and atmosphere for both workers and clients – and better results too!
How it started
Having graduated from a university in Sweden, Tess moved to Jersey in 2006 to gain experience to complement her academic credentials. What was meant to be temporary turned out to be permanent, and Jersey is now her home.
In 2020, after 15 years of working in corporate, trust, and fiduciary environments in Jersey, Tess left employment and my position as a regulated director and launched Virteffic Limited. Her decision to quit was motivated by a desire for independence and flexibility. In 2021, a decision was made to take on new staff members to meet the demand for secretarial support services, and the team has continued to grow since then.
Virteffic is trusted by businesses of all sizes, including many of the larger regulated firms (funds and trust companies, wealth advisors, and insurance companies) and non-profit organisations. Our clients are based in Jersey and Guernsey, the Cayman Islands, and the UK. Our services are focused on corporate governance and secretarial skills, which has allowed us to put our qualifications and previous work experience to good use. Over the years, our team has drafted thousands of minutes and prepared hundreds of board packs. We have helped businesses with their board effectiveness reviews, corporate governance framework, as well as day-to-day administration support. Since 2022, we have also provided training, courses and presentations.
My thoughts and priorities
The opportunity to expand and take on a wider team of professionals was a great opportunity after an incredible year as the only virtual assistant at Virteffic.
We have always placed the staff’s well-being as our top priority, and we have always strived to appreciate and care for every member of our team. The team members all enjoy the same benefits, flexibility and work-life balance as I do. Everyone who works for Virteffic is in complete control of their own hours. This opens up opportunities for those who can’t or don’t want to work in a traditional 9-5 office role.
The sports, social, and well-being committee was created early, and we organise regular activities and giveaways to make sure everyone remembers their value and importance. Sharing success with the team and promoting an environment where everyone can share ideas and views is important to me, along with regular catch-ups and forums for discussion.
I’m very passionate about my work and my business, and I enjoy drafting minutes, attending meetings, and discussing governance, meetings, board support, and my role as secretary very much.
