Become a ZA

Enjoy autonomy and virtual work that offers new challenges.

Becoming a Zirtual Assistant

Zirtual is a company that provides personal and executive assistance for busy people. We hire U.S. based, remote workers to join our team as Zirtual Assistants. "ZAs" directly interact with clientele and act as their delegation point person.

We are working hard to become the leader in the personal assistant space and differentiate ourselves through high-touch methods and our tight-knit community.

If you love the idea of getting in on the ground floor of a truly revolutionary startup, the freedom that comes with working remotely, and most importantly, helping others, then joining our team as a ZA may be the perfect fit for you!


The Role

Zirtual Assistants perform a variety of tasks for their clientele within the personal/executive assistant spectrum. We like to think of our ZAs as concierge/assistant hybrids since you can handle anything from booking a flight to Paris, to researching chiropractors in Tampa, to managing a client's busy schedule.

We set limits on the amount of time a client can ask you to spend on any one task and have other caps on types of tasks, working hours, and turnaround times based on the level of plan your client has signed up for.

What we expect from a Zirtual Assistant:

  • Prompt responses to clients' questions and requests
  • Internet savviness
  • Strong organizational skills
  • Strong internet research skills
  • Strong communication skills
  • Strong problem solving skills
  • A high-speed internet connection
  • Solid phone access; landline or dependable cell phone
  • Availability during working hours to respond to and engage with your clients
  • Familiarity with standard assistant tools like Google Docs, GCal, Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, etc.
  • Strong desire to help people and a positive attitude

You'll need to be passionate about people, be comfortable with technology, and excellent at communication. You will need to have a knack for creative problem solving and conflict resolution, and possess a keen mind and a big heart.


Why be a Zirtual Assistant?

Our assistants come from all walks of life, be it stay-at-home mothers who want to earn some additional income from the comfort of their home, or college-students looking to offset their tuition while setting their own hours.

Being a Zirtual Assistant has allowed people to travel, pursue their passions, raise their children and supplement their income while doing a variety of other things with their lives. ZAs enjoy autonomy, ownership of their client relationships and virtual work that always offers a new challenge.

Our clients are comprised of fascinating, successful individuals from all over the world. Zirtual Assistants get to develop real relationships with each client and learn from their experiences while helping them live a better, more productive life.
