VirtualStaff.ph is the brainchild of "virtual boss" and British entrepreneur Michael Brodie and the opportunity he saw after facing the same problem most entrepreneurs have when wanting to hire Filipino virtual assistants. Michael did what most people do and tried some of the many freelancing websites, however none of these sites provided a permanent solution that he was looking for. After moving to the Philippines, Michael Brodie had a light bulb moment. He noticed that hundreds of thousands of degree educated staff were available for salaries far less than that of western counterparts. Michael decided to create an online platform that catered for people like him and at the same creating thousands of opportunities for talented Filipinos to find higher paying work from home online jobs, working directly for employers from around the world without any middlemen and mark-up's.
