VIRTUAL ASSISTANT TO THE OWNER
I'm looking for someone who is smart, organized, and trustworthy to be my executive virtual assistant. As clearly as possible, I'm looking for a perfectionist who is extraordinarily detail-oriented.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not an entry-level assistant position. You MUST have at least 2+ years experience as a Virtual Executive Assistant for an executive or business owner.
This is a fast-paced, extremely detail-oriented and high-pressure role. Expect to get 30+ emails/day from me, many of which include tasks that must be done that day. You'll handle my business and personal details, including travel, scheduling, and coordination with my team.
I'm looking for someone with extreme attention to detail who enjoys negotiating deals, finding the best travel arrangements, and is fun to work with. If you're looking for a slower role with 9-5 hours, this is NOT the role for you.
But if you have extensive experience managing an executive or business owner's calendar, travel, and personal affairs, this position will be very challenging and extremely rewarding.
This is a part-time role, starting between 10-20 hours per month. Depending on how we work together, this could increase to more hours per month. We communicate via email, chat, and phone.
It's also remote, so you can work anywhere in the United States / during Chicago business hours. We communicate via email, chat, and phone.
