Virtual Assistant Talent is well-known virtual assistant company in the Philippines. The firm was founded in 2010 by John Davern, Jr., a human resources professional and real estate investor.
The company specializes in helping busy entrepreneurs maximize their time with affordable overseas virtual assistants. Virtual Assistant Talent VAs can take care of a wide variety of tasks, including accounting, customer service, marketing, graphic design, and more.
Two basic services are offered: Virtual Assistant Staffing Service Subscription (say that 3 times fast!) and Virtual Assistant Recruitment Service.
With the Service Subscription set-up, Virtual Assistant Talent advertises your position based on your detailed job description, and narrows down the applicant pool to the top 2 or 3 candidates. From there, you interview them just like you would an in-house employee, and choose which one you want to work with.
The rates for this service are very competitive — even for the VA companies in the Philippines — starting at just $4.20 an hour. They have a range of different packages available based on how many hours you need, and you can get a full-time VA for just $672 a month. The prices go up depending on experience and technical skill required to complete your job.
These virtual employees will be based out of their home-office, but managed by a local HR supervisor. Virtual Assistant Talent handles all the payroll processing and other requirements. They charge a one-time $99 set-up fee to get you started with your Subscription VA.
The other offering is the Recruitment Service. The benefit of the recruitment service is that the ongoing rates are lower, ranging from $2-4 an hour, which could add up to some long-term cost savings.
Under this set-up, they do the legwork of finding top-tier candidates for your position, and you can interview them to decide on the winner. After that, your relationship with Virtual Assistant Talent is over aside from the 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Your VA will work directly for you as a remote contractor and you’ll pay them directly.
