About Durham Office Services

Durham Office Services offers businesses a whole range of practical support services from call answering, messaging and secretarial services to business addresses, meeting rooms and managed office facilities.

Our offices at Portland House on the Belmont Business Park, Durham, provide a prestigious virtual business address for companies that wish to move away from using personal details, and that want to promote a local presence and create a professional first impression. We work with all kinds of businesses – from start-ups to established firms – and provide our virtual office services to customers in the North East, UK, and elsewhere.

As our highly trained and experienced staff answer your calls, they also act as virtual assistants providing secretarial and administrative support on both a regular and one-off basis, tailored to meet individual needs.

Easily accessible via major road and rail links, Portland House is also an ideal location for business meetings and training courses – in one of our two attractive meeting rooms – or even as a base for your business when you occupy one of our managed office spaces.

Proudly part of Durham Business Group

Durham Office Services is part of Durham Business Group (NE) Ltd, a not-for-profit organisation run by and for business owners and managers. Durham Business Group traces its origins back to 1981, and the establishment of Durham Business Club as a support network for local businesses in County Durham and the North East.

Since 1983, to keep the Club independent and financially self sufficient, we have always run a small business of our own. Today, Durham Office Services is the business side of the Group, offering virtual office services to both Club members and a much wider pool of businesses across the UK and beyond.
