Make Your Time A Priority.

I certainly will.

Option 1: Hourly Rate

A simple pricing option for your ‘one off’ or ‘need in an emergency’  task.  All time is tracked and a report is sent to you with your invoice.  Perfect for tasks required on an ad-hoc or PAYG basis.  No ongoing commitment although a 50% advance payment is required for all new clients.   Any onsite training required will be billed at an hourly rate and does not include travel expenses. 

Option 2: Project based

Perfect when its easier to set a fixed price for a specific task or project. Is there something on your to do list that for whatever reason never gets done?  Individual quotes for individual clients.  Let me know your project needs.

Option 3: Retainer

So we now love working together and you want a regular and continued service.  We agree a retainer fee and set number of monthly hours based on your business requirements. All retainers include a priority service, expertise and regular communication to ensure your business needs are met.  Package deals start from 2 hours per month up to 30 hours per month. 


I have worked closely with Debbie for a number of years and her commitment to work is excellent.  Debbie is organised and has used her skills to develop effective systems to support running a busy office.  She completes all tasks with diligence and fulfils her role with proficiency and expertise.  Debbie has outstanding relationships with all stakeholders and is very well respected by everyone.  Above all, Debbie is loyal and trustworthy.     


Debbie has dealt efficiently and promptly with pulling together information from different sources and presenting it to us in order that we could organise admission appeals correctly and quickly.  Her help was much appreciated.     

The Virtual Temp! Absolutely brilliant!  Extremely fast, extremely efficient and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the prompt and professional service.


Reliable, efficient and full of enthusiasm!  Debbie is reflective, meticulous and provides a thorough breakdown of every task; often sharing ideas and giving positive suggestions.      

It is a great pleasure to recommend The Virtual Temp.  Debbie has the ability to manage all kinds of tasks efficiently and to the highest standard.  Debbie prepared correspondence and undertook all the necessary requirements to enable me to take a successful choir out into the community.    

I have worked with Debbie for 15 years.  The support she has given, particularly during an academy conversion, has been invaluable.  I wish her every success in her business.     

The Virtual Temp is always a pleasure to work with.  Efficient and effective and no job is too much trouble.  Thank you for all your hard work.

I have known Debbie for many years and she has helped me in my role as Treasurer and Committee member in a variety of different ways, always with a smile and a willingness to help and support, even when she has been extremely busy with other tasks.  She carried out her tasks efficiently and quickly and always has sensible and useful suggestions to any queries or issues.  I have really appreciated her help and support.     

Perfect!  A lot of patience!  Will definitely use her service again.

I have liaised with Debbie over several years now, publicising and arranging events.  She is quick to understand what is required and can be relied upon to action requests in a timely and efficient manner.  She will help out whenever she can, often taking on tasks and making helpful suggestions.  She has always been most helpful and is brilliant to work with.

The Virtual Temp is extremely efficient and helpful.  I know I can ask for something, and it will always be done in plenty of time.    Paul, Site Manager

Debbie is friendly and welcoming even when busy and under pressure.  She has always been very patient, efficient and keen to help me.
