Can we talk about what I need before I commit to any hours or package?
Yes of course! I offer a complimentary discovery call to discuss your needs and answer any questions you have – contact me HERE
What if I don’t use all my hours in the monthly retainer/block package?
Within my retainer packages I allow 10% to be carried over, any more than that will be lost. However, with a carefully structured plan and regular catch-ups, it’s highly unlikely your hours won’t get used each month. Rolled over hours only last for the 1 following month.
For block packages you need to use your purchaed hours within 60 days of booking start date – these do not roll over.
What if I need more than the agreed hours?
If you need more hours than we originally estimated, I will do all I can to accommodate you and I always try to be flexible. Please note this will be dependent on my availability. If in doubt, always choose a package that allows a buffer – remember for retainer packages 10% rolls over!
My work is urgent and deadlines are tight - can you meet them?
My standard turnaround times are within 48 hours. I try to accomodate urgent tasks where possible but If you require a turnaround in less than this time then you will need to raise an urgent request.
For urgent requests I do charge an increased hourly rate (+£10ph). If there are any delays you will be notified immediately.
Urgent work required outside of Monday – Friday 9-5 is subject to availability and charged at an additional £35 p/h and is not included in any packages purchased.
Urgent requests are not covered on Block packages, unless agreed and paid in advance.
What are your payment terms?
Invoices have 7 day payment terms, payment to be made via BACS transfer.
Monthly retainers – Invoices are sent on or before the 21st of each month. With payment required in advance of service commencement. Monthly retainers have a 3 month minimum contract, with one month notice period.
Block packages – Require payment inadvance to secure my time.
Project work – Requires a 50% deposit on agreement and the remainder will be invoiced upon completion.
A Contract and Terms & Conditions will be sent out when work is agreed and will commence once the signed agreement has been returned (digitally) and invoice paid (where appropriate).
