David Rutley, the MP for Macclesfield mentioned in a recent blog post that he would like to see first-time employers looking to recruit staff for the first time. David goes on to say that people should take on the roles of entrepreneur and employer to create more opportunities in the job market, as they are more likely to recruit unemployed people.

Quotes from clients…
Having a call answering service means that I don’t have to worry about missing any calls, which could be a new client. I also have the back-up support which means that my dedicated PA takes detailed messages for me from my callers. Juicy Visual.
I love not to have to take every call, saving me time every time I switch the service on. Matthews Computers
I was previously using a standard voice mail answering machine for the calls I was unable to take, which was certainly not ideal. Using Face for Business has given me the confidence to show my business in a new positive light for all existing and new clients. Charles Lucas
