Why Hire A Virtual Business Assistant?

Growing a successful business takes time you struggle to find. Why not put someone else in charge?

People-Powered Performance

Running a business, without driving yourself insane, is one of the toughest things you can do.

One of the most difficult parts is simply staying focused on working on your business, growing it, and not spending too much time working in your business – managing and maintaining it.

Are you a manager or a leader? Do you want to spend all of your time following repetitive processes or creating new opportunities?

This is where a Virtual Business Assistant comes in. They will take charge of any processes you would like them to follow and, if you like, proactively contribute their own suggestions as to how to improve these.

They will take care of day-to-day operational activities – from sales to customer service – whilst you focus on leveraging your time as effectively as possible, spending each day expanding your company and not simply treading water.

At Virtalent, a Virtual Business Assistant will have an average of 15 years’ experience supporting business owners and execs before they even make an application to join our team. That means your business will be in safe hands and not left to a junior member of staff still “learning the ropes” at your expense.

What would you do with an extra two hours of time each working day? It doesn’t sound a lot, but that’s 40 hours per month and therefore 480 hours per year. Based on an 8 hour working day, you’ve just gained back 2 whole months (60 days!) per year. Now that’s something worth investigating further!

An Experienced Online Business Assistant

Virtalent do things a little differently. Our strict recruitment process means that less than 4% of applicants are successful in securing a position with our team!

Our tough selection process includes:

  • An in-depth application form
  • A video-based assessment
  • An independent identity check by Veriphy
  • References and previous client checks
  • Skills tests – from writing to numeracy
  • An interview with our Recruitment Manager

Once onboarded, all Virtual Assistants benefit from induction training and are then guided in their role by their Client Success Manager.

Not only do new team members have an average of 15 years’ experience upon joining Virtalent, but we also look for more than this. Are they commercially aware? Are they tech savvy? Do they fit in with our entrepreneurial, resourceful ethos as a team?

With Virtalent, you can hire a Virtual Business Assistant safe in the knowledge that we have gone to great lengths to ensure they are the best person for the job. Plus, you’ll enjoy holiday cover, roll over unused hours and receive the full attention of your dedicated Client Success Manager too.
