Businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to find skilled staff. Virteffic can assist to solve your resourcing issues in Jersey, without the cost and hassle of hiring an employee.
Resourcing Issues in Jersey
Many firms in the finance industry are recruiting and the lack of available candidates and finite level of resources is a well-known issue in Jersey. Whilst some roles in the finance industry may be filled quickly, it could take months or even up to a year to fill a vacancy. In particular, it takes time to fill vacancies for a senior more experienced position.
Resourcing issues are a major problem. It can cause increased stress levels for existing employees as well as having a negative impact on your business growth and profitability.
In addition, hiring a staff member can be very costly. The salary, training cost, infrastructure, tax, social security, and benefits add up to huge expenses. Fear and uncertainty from the latest global challenge spell trouble for a lot of businesses across all sectors. In light of this, this may not be the time to hire an employee. However, the work is still there and it needs to be done.
Virteffic has the solution
2020 may have been the most disruptive year. However, a crisis can rejuvenate the way that we operate. The pandemic and resulting lockdown made it clear that the remote workforce is a valuable resource. The workplace is changing. For instance, the ‘traditional’ 9 to 5 jobs are still there, however many are looking for flexible solutions.
A Virtual Assistant is a person who provides services to other businesses from a remote location in exchange for an agreed fee. Accordingly, the services offered are remarkably diverse, as detailed in the list of services provided by Virteffic.
The concept of Virtual Assistants is attractive as it has a low cost, low risk and high flexibility, which is appreciated in this period of uncertainty. It is modern, convenient, flexible and cost-efficient.
Virteffic Limited is based in Jersey and provides virtual assistant, secretarial support, and administration services to other businesses. Virteffic can assist as an extension to your on-site employees. A Virtual Assistant can perform most tasks that a regular employee can do.
Virteffic’s packages are fully flexible and tailored to the needs of your business. Some clients may just need assistance as a one-off for a specific project. There may also be a need to cover during temporary staff absence. Other clients may need close to full-time support whilst they are recruiting for a permanent employee. The great thing is that the service agreement is drafted so that you only pay for the time and services that you require. Furthermore, you can stop using the services at any time.
Having a virtual assistant located remotely has no impact on your operational costs. For example, you don’t have to supply a desk or any office space. Moreover, there are no benefits to pay, no training costs, utility bills, or even internet connection.
