I’m Jean and I help small business owners by providing ad-hoc tasks and on-going support, so you can focus on your core business. You outsource your necessary, but time-consuming, tasks to me and you’re freed up to get on with other things – like making money, enhancing customer service, getting referrals or bringing in new clients.
My career began, at Abbey National (later Santander) where I worked in IT, supporting head office systems, and then I specialised in project management and system implementation for 7 years.
In 2011, I left and worked as a consultant with Home Retail Group implementing Coupa, a cloud-based Purchase-To-Pay (P2P) system.
I had my daughter in 2013 and when she started school, I looked at how I could have a more flexible and balanced approach to work and give myself and our family a good work-life balance, so I relaunched Oyster Flame, offering Virtual Assistant services using skills and experiences from my past career.
As well as a Mum and a business owner, I am also a Guide Leader, and devote a lot of time to not only running my Guide Unit but I am also the Marketing & Communications Advisor for Girlguiding Bedfordshire.
I have updated my skills and knowledge to keep abreast of the latest tools and technology to enable me to support busy, overwhelmed small business owners, so you can reach your goals.
My skillset is primarily on the technical side, providing services including creation and maintenance of databases, data manipulation and transformation, reporting, analysis and project management. I also provide marketing support – social media posts and newsletters – as well as general administrative tasks.
So, if you, or someone you know, is struggling to find the time to focus on your business because of tasks you think I can help with, please get in touch to discuss how I might be able to help.
