Outsourcing Made Easy


Outsourcing Made Easy

Is your to-do list never-ending? Can’t get away from work to meet a tradesperson? Don’t want to spend your whole weekend researching accommodation for your next holiday?

If so, Executive Personal Concierge, based right here in Docklands, might be able to help you out.

Docklands resident Margaret Cairns started the business mid-last year with the aim of providing a service that takes the pressure off people and allows them to make the most of their time.  

Her clients range from busy professionals and parents to seniors and business owners, for whom she offers a range of different services.

Executive Personal Concierge can help with party planning, picking up gifts, making appointments, researching and booking holidays, taking care of pets, picking up dry-cleaning or doing your grocery shopping.

“I do whatever you need to be done that you don’t want to be running around doing on your lunch hour,” Ms Cairns said

According to Ms Cairns a lot of the work she does involves completing research and online tasks for her clients.

“I recently had a client who wanted to buy a new camera so I did some research on the best deals on different kinds of cameras.”

“I cut out all of those time-consuming tasks sitting in front of the computer when you could be spending time with your kids,” Ms Cairns said.

Executive Personal Concierge also assists small businesses that might need someone to do a few hours of filing, admin work or other odd jobs.

“It’s a new concept to feel free to outsource. You don’t have to spend all of your free time doing time-consuming tasks,” she said.

Ms Cairns charges $50 per hour for her personal concierge services and charges in 15-minute increments, which means you only pay for the time you use.

For example, if you pre-pay for an hour of assistance but the task you set only takes half that time you’ll have half an hour in credit with up to 12 months to use it.

You can also pre-pay for blocks of four, eight or 12 hours, at a discounted hourly rate, which also remain in credit for up to 12 months.

“Really it’s like having your own personal assistant at home or at work that you don’t have to pay a full-time wage to,” Ms Cairns said.
