It is our new year's resolution to continue to build our database of Occasional Assistants and to work hard to make small businesses aware of the huge benefits of using our members.
If your new year's resolution involves a return to work, or a commitment to expand your current freelance workload, please do contact us to see how we can help advertise your professional services.
Alternatively, if you run a small business and have decided that 2012 is the year that you will regain that all important work-life balance, why not search our members' database and begin the new year with high quality, reliable assistance in place for the times you need it most.
Happy New Year!
Well, Christmas is finally upon us. We hope that you all have a very lovely time and Santa is kind to you too!
Merry Christmas, love from Sarah and Beckie x

After many months of hard graft, we are in definite need of a Christmas night out to celebrate launching OA. But, Newbury or beyond, that is the question - any suggestions?
Bit more market research:
If you represent a local small business, would you consider using a reliable experienced freelancer on an adhoc basis or would you prefer to advertise a contracted role, despite the various costs associated with permanent recruitment?
What would your rationale be for this decision?
All feedback very gratefully received.
Bit of market research.... If you were looking to return to work, would you consider self-employment over a contracted role? If not, what is it that would put you off setting up as a freelancer?
