Our Five-Step Recruiting Process

Step 1 Salary

From the beginning of your virtual staff journey, you need to know what it is going to cost in the long term. We charge a small investment to recruit your staff member but we also ensure that you can determine whether they are affordable for you in the long-term. You can do this by getting a free salary report here. You then provide us with a simple Job Description document with your requirements for virtual staff and when you are ready, we start the recruitment journey.

Step 2 Education

Available exclusively to Virtual Staff clients are educational videos which will ensure you are ready to hit the ground running with your new virtual staff member. We will let you in on insider tips on how to effectively integrate your new employee into a productive member of your team.

Step 3 Sourcing

We are experienced in finding you the best candidates possible which match your Job Description. Once the sourcing team has narrowed down their choices from a pool of candidates, then it’s time to move on to the next step of the process.

Step 4 Interview

This element of the Virtual Staff recruitment process will include phone interviews and, where possible, face-to-face interviews. Online testing, background checks, and a final internal selection process is applied to all candidates. After this, three candidates will be offered for your consideration.

Step 5 Hiring

You are welcome to spend as much time as you would like interviewing and discussing your requirements with your three prospective staff members via Skype. This part of the process is designed to make you feel as comfortable as possible with your decision. Finally, when you’ve made your selection, you and your new virtual assistant can get to work!
