When you are advertising your job, it is a good idea to give an estimate of what the person is going to be earning for this particular role.

The cost of living in the Philippines means that you could provide a good quality of life, paying considerably less than you would do if you were hiring someone from the UK or US.

As a general rule of thumb, we recommend starting an Admin virtual assistant between 2.31 to 3.23 GBP (or 150 to 200 PHP) per hour.
