Dear Virtual Latinos,
We’re looking to hire 1 VA through this job that the Virtual Latinos Agency is publishing on behalf of an existing client.
Client & Short Job Description:
The company is a marketing agency that has been in business for 5+ years, and are currently in the process of redesigning their brand. They offer marketing and sales services for their clients, including coaching, consulting, and other related services. This may include HR, content creation, coordinating on projects, etc. Their new website will be published in the next month. Their clients include companies in retail, music, real estate, services companies, etc. The team is made up of international members. The owner/CEO is in Illinois, but also has a remote team in the US and abroad. Communication is the key to their online collaboration.
The company is small but works very fast and lean. They’re currently looking to get more employees and virtual help. Their customer base is growing fast, so they want to make sure they have the right team in place in order to better serve their clients. In total, the team is about 5 people in the US and around 15 people abroad. There’s no central office at this time, as everyone works remotely.
Today, they manage 5 main clients which are very active (3 big ones, and 2 new ones). Yet, they have 8-10 more new clients coming on board soon, so they can’t keep up with the demand, which is why they’re looking to grow their team.
They are looking for a content coordinator to manage the content writers. This includes making sure all the writers create/write all the content needed for the social media content, graphic design, web copy, blog posts, etc. The coordinator VA they’re looking for will be in charge of getting all the information from the content strategists, and potentially from the clients, coordinate the schedule with the team to prepare the topics, ideas, etc. The coordinator VA will not necessarily write the actual content but will create outlines for topics, ideas, and manage the projects that the actual writers are doing. Must make sure that all tasks are completed on time as needed to meet each client’s deadline and goals. VA must be a great communicator and be able to properly get the info they need, coordinate/manage and get back what’s needed from them.
