One of our friends who regularly consults on our business has a job opening at his new company, Real Reach Media. He has several successful ecommerce websites and is forming this new company to handle all the SEO and Social Media marketing for these sites and for other clients. We actually will be using the new company’s services for our own two ecommerce stores.
We are taking the unusual step of placing the details for the job opening here at 5 Minutes for Mom because we feel that this is a perfect opportunity for a Canadian (Vancouver region) part-time work at home mom. The position will allow for working at home, but require weekly status meetings in the South Surrey area of Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The opening is for a Virtual Assistant/Project Coordinator and the new business will be working in the social media, content strategy and SEO areas on our ecommerce stores among others.
Virtual Assistant/Project Coordinator Needed
We’re searching for an ultra organized, fast learning Virtual Assistant/Project Coordinator at Real Reach Media.
We are accepting entry-level applicants for this unique position because we are looking for a keen, talented individual who wants to learn and grow with our business.
The winning applicant for this exciting work-from-home position will demonstrate enthusiasm for mastering new online tools, software, social media platforms and have a natural ability to organize projects, track statistics and prepare business reports.
We’re less interested in a formal university degree and more impressed with the ability to learn in the new media frontier.
The job will involve coordinating, managing and tracking outsourced projects in the areas of blogging, web services, social media, ecommerce, training and marketing.
Are You The One For The Job?
Are you a social media power user? Do you normally have Twitter or Facebook open on your smartphone and stay connected online all the time? Do you blog? Are you on Pinterest?
Do you have an eye for marketing? Do you notice poor service in stores or badly conceived adverts and know how you would do better?
Do you have experience with online tools and software such as WordPress, Basecamp, Camtasia, and the Google Apps suite?
Would you like your working day to be fun and challenging instead of boring and repetitive?
Do you love to learn new systems and techniques in your own time?
Can you be relied upon to work independently and remotely? Can you track your time and create reports to show what benefits you brought to each working day?
To summarise, your talents should include:
- A passion for project management and organizing
- A strong knowledge of common programs such as Word, Excel, Outlook
- Confident, fast, knowledgeable use of the Internet
- A personable nature and the ability to guide other staff and contractors to be more effective
- Strong communication skills
- The ability to work on your own initiative and to send regular reporting and results
- A determination to learn best practices when shown and to apply them quickly
- An inquisitive mind that wants to try new platforms and tools to increase productivity
This is a part-time (20 hours a week) work from home position at Real Reach Media and is likely to increase to full time very soon. It would be helpful if you live within range of South Surrey for weekly or bi-weekly status meetings.
