    Hello again!

    You might remember I was looking for a virtual assistant back in Novemberish, and I found one, declaring "This place is better for finding workers than Odesk and Elance put together" so it's that time of the year again!

    I am looking for TWO virtual assistants, but please note that I have rather specific requirements for each. Pay will depend on your experience and bonuses can naturally be earned for good work every now and then, but not looking for anyone in the range of thousands per month...

    Both are meant to be full time workers (eight hours per day, five days a week), but I can consider those who can work less.

    VA #1

    Confident with Wordpress and either graphics design or development work (skills in both are always a plus!), the first virtual assistant will be working on my websites and updating them (customer support might be an addition to the job description later on, so make sure your English is at a level where you are confident in having clear and understandable conversations in English!). Content writing qualities are a plus, but there are two positions open for a reason. No one is perfect in everything.

    VA #2

    A content writer by day, my virtual assistant by, well, whenever I need my emails to be handled and so on. Assistant number 2 will be working more closely with me on my affairs and when I do not have anything to throw at him/her they will be writing content. Native English speakers preferred, but I am acknowledging the fact that there are a plethora of fantastic writers that are not native in English, so I'll give everyone a chance. You must be creative, and if I tell you to come up with the next Harry Potter like mega selling magical book saga, you'll ask "How many books?" and do it!

    The Applications

    PM me your applications! Oh, and I don't want my PM inbox to be filled with useless messages saying "Add me on Skype penismonster.xxx"!

    When applying for either one of the positions, please remember that I will be hiring TWO different people, so indicate which position you would be interested in (or if you are confident enough, apply for both, but you can only be chosen for one or the other). Clearly state your experience in the areas requested up there and then type in your salary request.

    The final step is to show me some samples of your work! I will not hire anyone without seeing samples of the work.

    Alright, I guess that's it. Any questions, PM me or post here. Both of the freelancers will receive a Google Apps for Work inbox as well, so consider that an amazing perk! (Or not...)

    Cheers,
    LC

    How much time one has to work ? And how much are you going to pay for each position?
    Don't say, depends on the person.
    Approx...

    And if you want a preferred amount, then the answer is less than 1000$ per month, but I do recognize quality that is worth more money.

    If you are that confident, then shoot me a PM and include some samples and background, plus a salary request.

    This post is the final one this thread needs, so I'll be closing the thread after this.

    I've received a few good applications, and I am currently in talks with two potential virtual assistants. However, I will only be hiring one virtual assistant after all, since a friend of mine whose summer holidays just started asked if I had a job for him, and I will be hiring him as the second person.

    Thanks for all those who applied!
