Virtual Administrative Assistants remotely help a team to organise their data and administrative tasks, as well as tracking financial invoices and reports. These assistants don’t usually have too much involvement with day-to-day operations but help keep the level of admin down for the team, directly impacting productivity.
Essential parts of a Virtual Assistant job description:
- Virtual Assistants won’t work closely with many members of the team, usually just checking in with the relevant team managers.
- They will mainly work ‘behind the scenes’ with daily or weekly check-ins where necessary.
- One of the main Virtual Assistant duties will be organising and sorting files, as well as entering data. Therefore, it is essential that they have access to the relevant drives.
- Typical employers of a Virtual Assistant include remote or hybrid businesses that are used to communicating with off-site employees.
