All our team members are resident in Jersey or Guernsey and we never sub-contract the services.

We recognise that remote work is not right for everyone. When building our team, we make sure we choose people who are flexible, highly organised workers who can work independently with the support of the team, and who thrive in a remote work setup. All our team members are reliable, diligent, and have excellent communication skills. 

Communication is important. Our standard practice is to clearly and consistently communicate with our clients about expectations around tasks, deadlines, and capacity.  We use regular reminders and an internal project management software system so that our virtual team can be just as effective as if they were working together in an office. Senior support is available for the virtual team to provide guidance and assistance when needed before reaching out to the clients should any further information be required.

Security and confidentiality are vital for our business. Virteffic has invested in all the technology and software required to ensure we can work securely and efficiently, and we also have IT support from a local provider on hand if required. We have numerous communication options available and our clients will choose a communication style that works best for them. 

Team Virteffic

- the flexible solution to your resourcing and capacity issues

Do you want to join our virtual support team?

Virteffic is a new, innovative, and flexible company. We want to foster a collaborative working environment that delivers the best solutions to our clients. As virtual assistants, the Virteffic team works as an extension to the client’s in-house team, or as an alternative for those clients who do not want to (or do not need to) commit to hiring an employee.

Our team works closely together and have regular face-to-face meetings. However, the core concept of Virteffic is to provide remote services, and therefore the full workforce is working from home the majority of the time. Virteffic provides full flexibility in when and where people work. The aim is to have energized, motivated, happy, team members who care for the business as much as I (Tess) do. This creates much better morale and atmosphere for both workers and clients – and better results too!

We are always interested to connect with ambitious, self-motivated, highly organised individuals with positive attitudes. Get in touch if you want to register an interest for any roles that may become available.
