OFFICE FLEX: Young entrepreneurs on their new venture


TWO young entrepreneurs have set up an office in Chichester city centre to help start-up businesses in the area.

With a regular online column, the pair will keep us updated on their progress on the new venture.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening! My name is Jess Green and I’m writing to tell you all about how James Parsons and myself found our way in to the world of business.

By following our online updates, we’ll share with you our journey, every problem we encounter, and hopefully every solution.

We will update you on how we plan to improve our business, not to mention our embarrassing moments!

We will share with you all the help and support we have received, and how Office Flex became a business reality.

Firstly, a little bit about ourselves. I’m 20-years-old and since leaving Gloucester University last year, I’ve been doing a number of different jobs including care work, window cleaning, teaching the piano, and even working as a builder’s labourer! James is 24, and since leaving sixth form, has been working in office retail. We met last year and have been in business together since March of this year.

Together, we have created and manage Office Flex, a company conveniently located in South Street, Chichester. We provide conference and meeting rooms, as well as flexible office space and a ‘virtual office’ service.

In addition, we provide administrative and secretarial support, a mail re-direction service, and an on-site print and copy centre to cater for all business needs.

Our aim is for Office Flex to be the first choice for local businesses to approach for all their business solutions. We plan to provide small businesses with the opportunity to work together, share information and advertise in networking meetings, to enable more effective and efficient ways of working for all concerned.
