If you’re looking for a part-time work-from-home job that offers a bit of a challenge, Worldwide 101 could be the company for you.

It’s hiring experienced, professional-level virtual assistants to join its team across North America and Europe.

Worldwide 101 connects business clients with its network of virtual assistants around the globe to provide not only administrative support, but also help with marketing, customer service, project management and bookkeeping.

You’ll work with clients who match your availability. You can work around your schedule, but you should be available during business hours.

This is a part-time job, 20 to 25 hours per week. Pay is $15 to $20 an hour, depending on experience, skills and seniority.

Your job would vary depending on the clients you support, including duties like:

  • Scheduling meetings, conferences and travel
  • Organizing travel arrangements
  • Providing customer support
  • Fielding client correspondence and managing emails
  • Administrative support

The company is dedicated to making this more than a job. You can expect a career with room to grow and develop.

“We foster long-term partnerships, open communication and transparency with our team,” the listing states. “We have a ‘virtual’ open door policy, which means that everyone has access to our CEO’s email address, and Skype, and is encouraged to speak up, and connect with her directly, no matter what the issue.”

You’ll also have opportunities to virtually meet the team. Even though everyone is remote, you won’t have to work in a vacuum!
