Team Bev Jardine?
Bev started 'Bev Jardine Services' in October 2016 through her passion for organisation and keen eye for attention-to-detail, and has recently become the first South African Certified Online Business Manager (Certified OBM®), further expanding her knowledge and love of all things systems and processes!
Combined with 14 years’ corporate experience in London, you will benefit from a sophisticated and high-level support team led by Bev. Having previously set up and worked in a bespoke lifestyle management and outsourced PA service business (Bev was interviewed by Elle Macpherson to be her personal PA!), and many years experience in the business management team of a large UK bank, and in finance departments in PR and media companies, Bev brings a professional virtual business support team to the creative entrepreneur looking to scale their business.
Bev has always wanted to make a difference and contribute to the bigger picture. As a highly skilled and experienced administrative professional, Bev knew she could give more value with a personal one-on-one service, getting to help you grow and manage your business.
We have a vested interest in you and your business and together we work to achieve your goals with our business support services tailor-made just for you. We love getting stuck in and watching our efforts make a difference. It just makes it that much more meaningful, that we're right there at the heart of the business with you.
If you’re looking for a virtual support team who use their intuition to take on tasks rather than just performing them, if you’re not just looking for an assistant, you’re looking for YOUR support soulmate?
Then we’re on the right track!
What our clients say
Working with Bev is a total joy - she is one of my secret weapons in my business. With her support, I’m able to take on so many projects with confidence knowing that she has my back, not just to assist and implement but to input and improve where it’s needed - that fresh pair of eyes that have taken the time to get to know my business over the past year is priceless. There is no task I’ve thrown at Bev where she doesn’t have a solution - usually she can handle it, will learn it and if she can’t she knows someone who can and takes this on always with a smile and always with first class communication. She helps with email marketing, CRM, social media updates, event registrations, and communications and I trust her fully to represent me with my clients in communication often. Every growing business needs Bev in my view!

Bev was a total life saver this week, I had a massive load of work to complete for my marketing project and just did not have the expertise or knowledge to get stuck into Mailchimp. Her and the team completed all my emails in record time AND she even made me a how to video to help with future projects. Above and beyond what I expected. I will be using your services AGAIN and AGAIN.
Bev is someone who takes her time to thoroughly get to know your business and needs but isn't slow in reacting to the tasks ahead.
She takes the initiative and is a gem at helping you running the admin and inter-connecting bits in your business.
Bev is my Podcast coordinator and she does this with such fervour and joy! It's a pleasure having her on my team and I'm so excited to expand her integration in my business in the future!

I just finished my first month of working with Bev. What a massive difference it made to my business and my stress level! For a quite some time, my goal was to do one newsletter per week and one blog. I do enjoy writing but I needed someone who would check the text for me and mainly design the newsletter... I used to spend hours and hours on Mailchimp trying to make professionally looking newsletters and blogs. And it still never looked as professional as I would like it to. I was recommended Bev on one of the FB groups I'm in and booked the initial phone chat. We spoke about my strategy, plans, etc. I signed up with Bev on that first phonecall and she created and sent the first newsletter within 24 hours of that call! What a success! I received so many emails complimenting the newsletter ... and after the second as well ... the best part is the opening rate went up well above average in the industry, and the click rate as well.
I am so happy and grateful I am working with Bev. She knows what I'm looking for, she is always very easy to talk to, very professional and also friendly and kind.
Now I can't imagine my business without my lovely VA, Bev!

Bev helped me to put a great big tick in a number of boxes on my "must do when I get time" To Do list. She is fast and efficient and has a great attention to detail. I would highly recommend her as an invaluable resource for your business.
Benessamy Wedding and Event Planning
I have been working with Bev since April 2017. Before Bev, I was juggling a lot of tasks that seemed quicker for me to do myself, such as manage my diary and travel arrangements. I very quickly learned that having Bev onboard to take care of these arrangements for me, meant I could concentrate on other more important aspects and it gave me back time to focus on the business issues that matter most.
As a busy Executive, time is a scarce commodity. I travel extensively and knowing I have Bev to take care of these tasks is a huge weight off my shoulders, especially when I am frequently in different time zones, it helps to have someone keeping on top of things for me while I’m out of reach.
Tasks you might consider simple like arranging appointments, gathering quotes, completing applications and paperwork, the tasks that “will just take me 5 minutes” add up! But having Bev to entrust these tasks too has been a game-changer.
Before Bev, I had never come across anyone in her profession as a VA, and now having worked with Bev as my VA it has been an invaluable resource. I’m not sure how I managed without her before.
Bev is very efficient, motivated and extremely professional, and I would highly recommend her for your business.
CEO, Skyfii Group Pty Ltd
When I started working with Bev, I wasn't exactly sure what I needed help with, I just knew I couldn't do everything on my own. I was bogged down in the daily minutiae, not making the time to focus on my bigger vision and the reasons I started my business in the first place.
Bev was amazing at helping me find the tasks that I could delegate to her. She went above and beyond to fill in the gaps where I needed support. Bev was extremely skilled with running everything behind the scenes so that I was free to delegate and focus on what brings me the most joy in my business.
I am so grateful to have a VA on my team that I can completely trust and who I know will take the utmost care in supporting me. Thank you, Bev!!
Soul Abundance IQ
I can’t recommend Bev highly enough. I had accumulated a mass of time consuming chores and a big admin backlog, and Bev just sailed through it with minimum guidance. She followed up some old outstanding payments, went through a heap of paperwork, arranged for some jewellery to be repaired, and shipped a large heirloom dolls house to my great-nieces. Nothing seemed to dismay her. She also took exceptional trouble to get a set of keys back to me, which I had quite forgotten about. It was very positive and refreshing to work with her.

Social Media Manager & Pinterest Guru
I handle all things social media at Bev Jardine. I am enthusiastic about what I do and 100% results-oriented. I have an educational background in interactive media and digital marketing, so you can rest assured you’re in good hands. I work remotely as I travel between my two homes - Sicily, Italy and Cape Town, South Africa. When I am not in front of my computer, you can find me on the water kiteboarding!
I support clients with newsletter and blog management, and proofreading. Basically, I help you to shave off hours from your work week giving you more time to get at those things you rock at!
I’m also a mother to Jesse and Isla and our beautiful kitten named Livie. I try to remember that life is short and that it’s worth fighting for all that your heart desires. Because of this I’m just trying to live my best life and be as gracious and kind to everyone as I can be whom I meet along the path. There’s nothing like the sound of the ocean to calm and refocus me. The only other sound that does this for me is the night sound of the African bush. I love all things cheese and basically grew up on cheese and Bovril toast. I love the stage and musicals and you’d probably find me in a ballet class if you got a sneak peak of my younger self.
We thrive on building long-term relationships, it’s what we're famous for! It means that we can really get to know you and your business, while you work on it, we work consistently each week in it.
We value working with only a select number of clients and that’s why we prefer to offer you a set number of hours each week, every week.
The more we get to know you and your business, the more we are plugged into its vision with you, the more benefit you will start to see as we become aligned with you.
You'd like to see that we’re a great fit (we're sure we will be!), before diving into a monthly package.
This is a one-off bundle.
10 hours of our time to be used within 30 days from the purchase date.
You're ready to delegate and take your business to the next level.
Set number of hours each month where we clear the diary specifically for you and your business.
We typically offer a minimum of 10 hours, but we can tailor the number of hours to suit you once we know what tasks you need done.
And so the adventure begins ...

A little note from Bev ...
I LOVE this type of work. I'm kind of a weirdo when it comes to ticking off a to-do list!
When I’m not getting plugged into your business I love finding crazy adventures to go on with my husband and young kiddies. We love running and riding the local trails on the weekends and generally getting dusty or muddy, and are always finding excuses to keep us motivated to stay fit and healthy. Together we’ve completed transfrontier multi-day running events, half-ironman, 100-mile cycles, climbed mountains, bungee jumped and white-water rafted. I LOVE the outdoors, and you can definitely say I love to live actively!! We are lucky enough to live on an incredible coastline on the East Coast of South Africa, fondly known as the Dolphin Coast, and you’ll find us walking the forest trails or on the beaches most weekends (on occasion with some bubbly too ... and not just the kids kind of bubbles 🍾!)
