HOW IT WORKS
1. Receive handpicked bios
Send us a message to get started. We’ll get back to you to assess your business needs, and handpick a few good candidates for you from among our amazing remote worker team!
2. Have a call with the candidates you like
Once you’ve selected a candidate (or multiple candidates) based on the bios we’ve sent you, we’ll arrange for you to have a call with the candidate(s) to see if it’s the right fit.
3. Pay only for the hours you use
Once you’ve selected your worker we take a 100% refundable $80 deposit and then bill only for the hours you use. That means no contracts, minimums or long-term commitments.
4. Change a life
We only hire professionals from countries where economic opportunities are slim to none — like Venezuela, where most people are struggling even to feed themselves. Hiring one of our workers will have a huge impact in changing their (and their family’s) lives!
BUILDING BUSINESSES. . . AND CHANGING LIVES!
If doing something wonderful for someone else matters to you, you’ve come to the right place. Legacy Remote VAs’s mission is unique: to help compassionate entrepreneurs hire talented remote workers from countries in crisis.

By hiring from Legacy Remote VAs, you’re not only able to better scale your business — you’re also helping to change a life.

Besides our hourly rate, we have no other fees and no long-term contracts.
How competitive are Legacy Remote VA’s wages?
Legacy Remote VAs is a social enterprise with social impact as its goal.
The US dollar goes a long way in developing countries. The salaries received by our team ($650-$1,500/month) are significantly above local wages, providing some of the highest wages to be found in countries where jobs are often non-existent or pay an average of $200-$300/month.
As an indication of this, Legacy Remote VA’s long-term retention of workers is higher than 96%, suggesting how valuable a stable job earning in USD is in the countries from which we hire. In addition, Legacy Remote VAs provides the ability for its team to work online from home and avoid long and sometimes dangerous commutes.
Why Legacy Remote VAs and not Upwork?
Many of our clients used Upwork at one point and then moved over to Legacy Remote VAs. Why?
Social impact. Through Legacy Remote VAs, you’re hiring someone directly from a country in crisis (like Venezuela or Nicaragua) or another developing country where the need is strong, and your employment will change lives.
Empowerment of women. 70% of our workforce is women and narrowing gender inequalities in developing countries is at the heart of what you help to accomplish when hiring through Legacy Remote VAs.
The right person picked for you. Unlike Upwork, where you’ll need to wade through dozens of applications, we analyze your needs and pick someone we know, trust ourselves, and believe will be the perfect fit for you.
