Depending on where you go, roaming charges can be astronomical, wifi can be intermittent and don't even think about the timezone difference! Do you really want to be returning calls at 3am because where you're staying is so far ahead of the UK?

"I know I wouldn't want that. I'd want to relax!"

You deserve your holiday, don't you? You want to drink cocktails by the pool, bury your feet in the warm sand, relax in a shady hammock or even splash your giggling kids in a warm ocean. And you want to switch your phone off too.

So here's a great solution for you. Let The Office Genie cover your phones when you're on holiday. You can relax knowing that every call will be answered in your business name, every message taken and emailed to you and we'll even let the caller know when you're expected to return and when you can call them back.

That's right, it's our short-term telephone call handling service and it's just what you needs. It's holiday cover if you'd like, and it starts at just £10 per day. That means we'll take up to four messages per day for you, so if you have a ten day holiday, then you can get up to 40 messages.

And don't forget that The Office Genie also offers virtual assistant services. Do you need marketing materials sending out? How about us updating your CMS? Have payments taken? Email enquiries responded to? Maybe we can even book appointments for you so you can hit the ground running on your return from holiday? We do charge extra for that, but of course it's always great value for money.

"Whatever you need, The Office Genie can help you!"

So don't leave your business in the hands of your voicemail, or worse, in the care of cowboy message takers, the genies are here for you.

Call us on 01604 529170 to find out more about our telephone call handling service, or click here to send us an email enquiry and we'll be in touch as soon as we can. We'll sprinkle some magic for you and you just relax ... your business is in safe hands with us.

Until next time ...



More about Jacqui Frost ...


I had a successful 20-year career as an office manager and personal assistant; however, my job was no longer focused on the customers and became all about the numbers. My customer-focused background began when I was 12 in my father's independent carpet showroom. I had a spell with Marks & Spencer before I moved into office-based jobs. I have worked as a training administrator, a PA and PA/office manager in a variety of industries from manufacturing to the IT education sector.

Meanwhile, my husband Ian, a successful Northampton based Master Decorator and owner of Rainbow Frost, was losing out on work due to missed phone calls. When he was busy, callers were getting his voicemail but weren't leaving messages. I knew how to fix that problem!

I quit my job and took on Ian as the first client of The Office Genie in November 2005. Word quickly spread with the second client coming on board just one week later. The majority of our clients since have come to us through word of mouth recommendations and networking referrals. Over the years, I have become well connected in Northampton and Milton Keynes.

Outside of work I enjoy swimming, roller skating, the theatre and my cats and dogs!
