About The 25th Hour
We provide a flexible, efficient and cost-effective support service, without the additional expense of employing someone. You receive assistance as and when you need it, either with a one-off project or on a regular, long-term basis. We can help take the workload off you if you are:
- Overloaded with work and need more help with your personal to-do list
- Unable to justify employing another member of staff
- Self-employed, a small business without commercial premises or an individual who works remotely
- Wanting to spend more time on core business activities and less time handling administrative tasks
Using today’s technology we work ‘virtually’, away from your office/base.
It was at a young age I knew my passion was organising and managing people. I started my career at Quest Business College, where I studied professional secretarial and business; I then studied first-line management. After years of working in high-end, fast-paced businesses, I realised that so many people are forever rushing, clock watching, and that there are never enough hours in their day. Setting up The 25th Hour has always been a dream of mine. Equipped with years of experience including EA/PA roles ,front of house, customer service, sales and office administration, I have now launched The 25th Hour. A solution for today’s busy and hectic lifestyles of individuals and small businesses looking for more hours in their day.
What is a Virtual Assistant?
Are you a small-business owner or private individual struggling to fit all your tasks into each day? As a small-business owner or independent consultant, it’s inevitable that you have a million and one things to do. This can leave you feeling as if there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Outsource tasks you don’t want to do, don’t have time to do or can’t do – to me.
My company, The 25th Hour, was set up to help entrepreneurs and professionals win back valuable time. The idea came to me when I worked in the City, surrounded by busy people with never enough hours in the day.
I’m a virtual assistant based in West London providing admin and personal assistant services to sole traders and small business owners who need assistance, and time poor individuals with busy schedules. I’m passionate about what I do and find it very rewarding.
My clients are typically London-based, needing virtual and occasional on-site support. In the last year I’ve worked with Home of Social, EatChiswick festival, a hedge fund manager, an interior designer, coaching supervisor and an IT support company. Please get in touch if you’d like to find out more about my services.
The 25th Hour offers professional, affordable and reliable personal assistant and lifestyle management services for small businesses and private individuals.
You can see a list of all services below. My services are tailored to meet your specific requirements. You can depend on my professional experience to find the right solution for you – confidently, quickly and without complication.
I take requests by phone or email, or I can come to meet you to discuss your needs. I provide a free consultation, where I get to know you and your business and understand your requirements.

What people are saying about the 25th Hour
I have been using 25th Hour’s services for a couple of years now, Charlotte and Jodie have helped my business grows, taking on the admin and making my bookings while I carry out the main task. It started of on an ad-hoc basis – as and when I needed help and they are now a regular and important part in the running of my business, especially when I am away. Charlotte is fantastic, she is great at organising and comes up with fresh new ideas for structure, which are always welcome. Jodie is also super efficient and gets any set task done effortlessly. Five stars from meSarah Tully
Charlotte is an absolutely lovely person. She is clever, professional and enthusiastic. Totally switched on, she just gets on and does whatever needs to be done with the minimum of fuss. Highly trustworthy, with absolute integrity!Alison Cole
After 12 months of working with Charlotte, I don’t know what I would do without her. On a practical level, she manages my invoicing, appointments, mail shots, Zoom etc. She is always warm and friendly both with me and with my clients, who speak of her as “one of us”. However many emails I ping over to her, she picks them up, actions what needs doing, keeps me posted, and then comes up with great ideas for how I/we can organise my work and my clients. We even have time to laugh, which makes it fun for all of us.Alison Hodge
The idea of having a PA can be quite scary but the reality has been brilliant. Charlotte is highly organised, lovely to spend time with, keeps me on the straight and narrow – and takes a great burden off my shoulders. I can get on with what I need and like to do but no longer feel that my life is out control. She knows where things are, she is resourceful and she is unfailingly helpful and supportive. I am so glad I took the decision to get this kind of help and Charlotte was just the right person.Jackie Elton
Charlotte has been a fabulous addition to my working life. Her organisational skills have helped me sort out systems and plans that have helped me be more efficient. I am so pleased to have Charlotte’s expertise and calm manner to help me in my growing business – she also helped with our house move and wedding! Thoroughly recommended.PB
A very dedicated and professional PA. I would highly recommend using Charlotte’s services, which I have on many occasions and never been disappointed.Tina Curtis
Charlotte is a great person to have in your team as she is positive, upbeat and tenacious – all the things you need from a great PA and more. She’s great with people, knows how to get things done quickly and offers a very flexible suite of services.Eva Keogan
Charlotte has worked for me a few times and she is always very professional, efficient and most importantly, a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her services to anyone who hasn’t got time to manage everything going on in their life.Catherine Lister
Charlotte did a fantastic piece of work taking notes for me at several long meetings / research focus groups. She quickly learned to understand what was and wasn’t important, wrote brilliant, intelligent notes and most important of all, remained cheerful and professional at all times. I would have no hesitation in recommending her for whatever you need.Tania Lewis
I came across 25th Hour via a previous employer. As I was setting up my own business I needed someone reliable who would handle the tasks I was less than confident with. Marketing plans, reception organisations, calling potential clients and database building/handling not to mention the promotion ideas and putting them into action. Charlotte was like a breath of fresh air, everything came natural and she has an outstanding rapport with ALL my clients.Lauren Marchant
Faultless service to date and also avoided me hanging around for handymen whilst I needed to be in work meetings.Dafydd Gomez Evans
The 25th hour helped me organise my business and personal life which gave me more hours in my day. No job too big!! I will be calling on Charlotte and her services again and would highly recommend.Paul Fitzgerald
