Virtual Staff Finder is a company that is well known for connecting entrepreneurs with virtual assistants in the Philippines.[1][2][3] CEO Chris Ducker founded the company in 2010.[1][2][3] Virtual Staff Finder is headquartered in Cebu City, Philippines.[1][3]

History[edit]

Virtual Staff Finder launched in 2010.[1] The company grew out of founder and CEO Chris Ducker's personal goal to minimize time in the office.[4]

Virtual Staff Finder was created to "bridge the outsourcing gap between working with a home-based virtual assistant and having the backbone and the experience of hiring the right person for the job”, says Ducker. Ducker is also the owner of the outsourcing company Live2Sell Group, which works primarily with medium and large companies on their telemarketing and customer service requirements. He used Live2Sell Group's interviewing and background checking techniques to build Virtual Staff Finder's hiring process.[5]

The company is headquartered in Cebu City, Philippines.[1][3] Its highly experienced recruiting team works on-location, helping Filipino virtual assistants in Cebu and the surrounding areas find full-time and part-time work with successful business owners around the world.[1]
