DO YOU WANT TO WORK AS AN ASSOCIATE VA?

Both new and established Virtual Assistants can greatly benefit from taking on Associate work.
 
It's not only a fantastic way for new VAs to gain experience, figure out what tasks they like doing and earn a regular income, established VAs also like taking on Associate work because there's less pressure to find direct clients and the additional income can really help during quiet periods.
 
However, if you're looking to become an Associate it's important to know how it all works. Because when you understand what a Lead VA is looking for and what you can do to stand out from the crowd, you're much more likely to be the one who gets the role.

THIS GUIDE COVERS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO WORK AS AN ASSOCIATE VA

FAQs


Can I work as an Associate if I'm a new VA?
Yes, definitely. You don't need necessarily need to be an established Virtual Assistant, but you do need to be able to legally work in a freelance capacity. Established VAs definitely outsource work to new ones, but there are a few things they will insist you have in place before they do so. These are outlined in the guide.

Does the guide guarantee me Associate work?
Although the guide shows you where to look for Associate work, how to apply for roles and how to prepare for both the consultation and assessment, it will be up to you to apply the advice and make a good impression. You won't be hired for every single Associate role you apply for, but you will be in a far better position than someone who doesn't understand the process.

Is the guide suitable for non-UK VAs?
Yes. Although the legal and financial aspects are UK-focused, you're advised on what you need to have in place before another VA will outsource work to you. Although the GDPR and insurance aspects are global, tax laws will vary depending on your location. 

How can I find out how much I'll be charged in my own currency?
The guide is priced in pounds sterling but you'll be shown the amount you'll pay in your own currency before you click to confirm the transaction. You can also check beforehand by visiting the currency exchange website www.xe.com.

LEAD VAs CAN BE SELECTIVE ABOUT WHO THEY WORK WITH

With their reputation on the line, Lead VAs simply cannot afford to hire just any VA who contacts them. They not only need to ensure any Associate they take on has the right skills, but they also need to have confidence in the quality of their work and trust they can deliver to their client's standards within set deadlines. With a huge number of willing VAs to choose from, a Lead VA can afford to be really selective about who they outsource work to.... but with the help of this guide, you'll be in a much better position to ensure it's YOU they choose!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Because I haven’t worked with Associates myself, I asked Victoria Tretis from My VA Rocks to write this guide after receiving numerous requests for training on how to be taken on as an Associate by another VA. 

Prior to setting up her business, Victoria was an employed VA and worked closely with another VA. They buddied together to provide back-up support to one another’s clients during holidays, absences and seasonal peaks. As a result, Victoria hired Associates quite early on and now manages a small team of them.
