Business support

We offer key services to help you run your business more efficiently, as well as provide access to mentoring and finance - even if you don't rent one of our office spaces in Leamington Spa

Services

Back office services

Back office services

We offer a range of services to support small businesses with time-consuming back office work, enabling you to concentrate on the core tasks involved in establishing and running your business. This also means you don’t have to employ administrative staff in the early stages.

Our services include telephone answering tailored for your business. This is a personal bespoke service, unlike the alternative large-scale ‘call centres’ model. A personalised and quality service can also make your business appear more established and larger to your potential customers. Get in touch to find out more.

Or perhaps you need someone to tackle your administrative tasks such as bookkeeping, typing documents or organising meetings and events - this can all be taken of care of at a very reasonable cost.
