There are thousands of virtual assistants listed on the Virtual Staff marketplace. You can directly choose from either part-time or full-time Filipino VAs. 

The first step is as simple as creating a free employer account and posting a job. 

VirtualStaff.ph has the largest database of fully vetted virtual assistants in the Philippines. Our database consists of thousands of skilled, educated, and ID verified workers.

Instead of going through a traditional Philippines outsourcing provider , you can directly hire virtual assistants on VirtualStaff.ph by creating a free employer account, posting jobs, and choosing from the best applicants.

The unique thing about our outsourcing marketplace is that all virtual assistants on VirtualStaff.ph are exclusively from or based in the Philippines.

A virtual assistant is a remote staff who works either part-time or full-time on admin, social media, replying to emails, amongst other things. 

The most commonplace to hire a virtual assistant is in the Philippines. You can easily hire English-speaking and educated Filipino VAs at a fraction of the cost of hiring a local employee.

Easily hire virtual assistants by following these three simple steps:
  1. Write a job description. The key here is to keep it simple while including everything a potential applicant should know before applying. We suggest you include what skills you require the VA to have, the level of experience, the work hours of the job, and the hourly salary rate. 
  2. Post the job on VirtualStaff.ph. We make it easy for you, it’s free, and it only takes a few minutes.
  3. Within 24-48 hours, you’ll get applicants. The next step is to shortlist the best ones, send them a message, and either schedule an interview or decide to hire the person there and then.

Of these three steps, your job description is the part in which you must include all the critical information related to the job position.

You can hire virtual assistants in the Philippines for between $2.50 and $10.00 per hour, depending on the individual, experience, skills, and expertise.

Average salary rates for Filipino virtual assistants are:

Entry-level: $2.50-$5.00 per hour 

Intermediate: $3.00-$7.00 per hour

Expert: $4.50-$10.00 per hour or more depending on the VAs quality. This virtual assistant will be highly skilled, experienced, and usually someone who can easily replace a local employee without any quality compromise.

These are ballpark numbers. Ultimately the hours the virtual assistant works, and the salary you decide to pay, are entirely up to you and the virtual assistant to agree on!


  • Less than 12 months of work experience
  • Fresh graduate or somebody new to the world of work
  • Able to do basic tasks but nothing too complicated
  • The VA will probably need training for foundational stuff.

Intermediate level:

  • Degree educated (remember, you can ask the applicant to show proof of their degree if you want to)
  • Under 5 years work experience (not necessarily as a VA, but in complementary fields)
  • Solid resume with proven work history

Expert level:

  • Five years minimum work experience
  • Proven track record with local or overseas employers (solid resume)
  • Able to work independently or as part of a team
  • Minimal supervision is required 

Hiring virtual assistants in the Philippines will let you save a lot of money on salary costs. You will also be able to hire excellent quality English-speaking VAs to help you grow your business. 

The reason why the Philippines is the best place to hire virtual assistants is due to the following reasons:

  1. You can save 66%-80% on salary costs by hiring Filipino virtual assistants due to the cost of living.
  2. The Philippines has thousands of talented and highly educated people who want to work remotely as part-time or full-time virtual assistants.
  3. English is the joint official language of the Philippines. All laws and road signs are in English. If you walk into a restaurant in the Philippines, you’ll notice that the menu is exclusively in English. 

You can learn here why virtual assistants in the Philippines speak English.

I’d suggest you also read the article about the advantages of outsourcing to the Philippines.

To get the best applicants, write a simple job post that is clear, concise, and straight to the point. It’s always best to leave out any filler. 

Remember to include all vital information such as tasks, salary, work hours, and why the VA should apply for the job. (Remember “what’s in it for them”).

Choose a job title such as “virtual assistant,” "real estate virtual assistant ", “social media virtual assistant,” “Amazon virtual assistant, ” “experienced virtual assistant,” “online virtual assistant,” or anything that easily describes the job position.

The goal is to pick a keyword that applicants are likely to search for. This is how you’ll get better quality people to apply.

Here are some samples of more descriptive virtual assistant job post titles that might help you attract quality VAs:
  • Full-time virtual assistant needed to provide customer service to our customers
  • Need a virtual assistant for administrative tasks
  • Are you an experienced VA?
  • We are looking for a rockstar virtual assistant!
  • Virtual assistant to manage social media.
  • A virtual assistant to the CEO
  • A virtual assistant to answer phones and handle admin

Job posts for virtual assistants should include:

Tasks: What will the job involve the virtual assistant doing? For example, you could say something such as “Tasks will include handling my admin, replying to customer emails, research, and posting on social media.”

Salary: I’d suggest you again touch on the hourly salary rate as well as the work schedule. For example, “this job pays $5.00 per hour, and the job is 40 hours per week. You will work 9am-6pm EST from Monday to Friday”.

Here are some examples of virtual assistant job responsibilities:

  • Create social media posts and reply to our followers when they comment.
  • Schedule meetings and book travel and accommodations
  • Respond to emails, phone calls, and live chat, prepare customer spreadsheets and follow up with customer queries.

Include any requirements and qualifications you’re looking for in a virtual assistant. Here are some examples:

  • Proven experience as a virtual assistant or relevant role
  • Experience with Google documents or Microsoft office
  • Minimum of a bachelors degree
  • Excellent phone, email, and instant messaging communication skills

Virtual assistants can help you improve productivity, free up valuable time, and increase your profits by drastically reducing your payroll costs. 

Businesses hire Filipino virtual assistants to save thousands of dollars a year on employee costs. It makes sense to leverage hiring overseas virtual assistants, especially now that the world is globalized and interconnected.

Hiring a virtual assistant directly on the Virtual Staff marketplace is the best idea for most people. However, you can also professionally outsource to the Philippines with our enterprise solution.

Some of the things that you get as part of the enterprise solution include:

  1. Client success manager: Get your dedicated outsourcing account specialist.
  2. Recruitment: Our talent acquisition team, based in the Philippines, will find you the best candidates based on what you need.
  3. Legal protections: We onboard the staff with our Philippine-based sister company before assigning them to work for you. By doing this, we can add in extra-legal protections.
  4. All-inclusive pricing: The price you pay includes the staff salary, service fee, payroll, and compliance.
  5. Peace of mind: Have the full weight of VirtualStaff.ph behind you to ensure outsourcing to the Philippines is a long-term success.

As we mentioned above, the enterprise solution is not for most people. However, if you feel it’s something that would be better for your business needs. You can learn more about it here.
