Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a Personal Concierge and a Personal Assistant?

A Personal Concierge is very similar to a Personal Assistant.  A personal assistant is often associated with a business, and a concierge is often associated with a hotel, but today they are more widely understood as the same job. Both essentially work for everyday people, namely assisting busy people who find that they don’t have enough hours in the day.

What areas do you cover?

Some things I can do for you ‘virtually’ so if there is no need for my physical presence, I cover anywhere!

I am based in Southam, Warwickshire (CV47) and cover all surrounding areas: For example, Southam, Napton, Long Itchington, Deppers Bridge, Bascote, Ufton, Radford Semele, Bishops Itchington, Harbury, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Daventry, Rugby, Boddington, Priors Marston, Dunchurch, Ryton, Marton, Helidon, Flecknoe, and more!  If you live further afield, I can still help you, but I may charge for my travel time.

Why would I need the Time Fairy when I have a cleaner and a gardener?

The Time Fairy can do multiple different jobs for you in one day. Even if you have a cleaner already, I expect that there may be things they won’t do for you, such as windows, making beds and ironing. If you hire me, I can also do extra errands such as taking packages to the post office, collecting your dry cleaning, waling the dogs, etc. There are so many different things that I can help you with – you just need to ask.

Can I meet the Time Fairy before deciding if I want to hire her?

Yes, of course! I am happy to meet up with you to discuss your individual requirements, and so that we can get to know each other a bit better. Use the Contact page to set something up.

Do I have to hire the Time Fairy full time?

No! The great thing about the service is that you can use it as often as you need it. Some people prefer a weekly time slot because they always have things that need doing. Others only want assistance as a one off.

Are you DBS (CRB) checked?

Yes, I have a current DBS (formerly called a CRB) and can provide references too.

How much do you charge?

Prices start at £16 per hour and depend on different circumstances, such as how many hours you require and the travel distance.  For example, if you live close and want a weekly time slot, it would cost less than if you live an hour away and only want a short amount of time as a one off.
