Our Team

I know you are ready for real business growth!

Our team is at the core of everything we do. We are more than a team we are a FAMILY and we treat everyone with respect and kindness.

The virtual assistants that come to Virtual Elves can be assured of a nurturing and supportive environment, clients that value and look for long-term relationships and a fair and ethical working environment.

Virtual Elves is a business centred around providing flexibility for men and women with skills in the virtual workplace to work from home and balance their work with their family. After all, it’s why we started the business in the first place!

Our virtual assistants and creative specialists are spread all over the Philippines, India and South America.

"My greatest dream is to spend more time with my children, and being part of the VE family made that a reality. Thank you for all the opportunities, you are a wonderful blessing to all of us." Karina
