Your next job can happen at home.
Finding a job in today’s world should be easier than ever, but it’s not. Especially if you’re looking for an opportunity that doesn’t force you to choose between a career and a life. Maybe you’re a young professional looking for the right fit, a mom wanting to raise your own children while working, or an empty-nester who wants more flexibility. Whatever stage you’re in, one thing is certain: you deserve a better way to work and live.
BELAY was founded on this simple idea: there aren’t just two options for work. We believe there’s another way – what we call The Third Option. This option allows you to work from home (so you have far more opportunities to get work you love) while choosing how much you work. Whether you’re a Virtual Assistant, Bookkeeper, Web Specialist, or Social Media Strategist, we have clients right now who need the expertise and insight you bring to the table. And because you’re remote, you can bring your knowledge from the kitchen table.
What does life look like as a BELAY Virtual Assistant? Meet Kristen.
Before becoming a BELAY Virtual Assistant, Kristen Laffaldano covered a lot of ground in her career – both literally and figuratively. She began her professional journey working as a communications manager for a mid-sized Christian publisher in South Carolina. There, she helped bring the organization into the digital age, by planning, coordinating, and implementing their very first electronic communications program.

A few questions you may be asking...
We have contractors who work as little as 10 hours per week (the minimum) while others choose to work 40+ hours per week.
Our contractors are asked to be available to their clients Monday through Friday, normal business hours. This means a contractor is typically “on call” for client’s needs during those hours.
BELAY contracts with the best, most highly skilled professionals in the industry, who self-develop and self-train. We do provide on-going resources and support for our contractors via webinars, mentors and coaching, and have a community where contractors can share best practices with each other.
Conducted over email and video conference calls, our application process consists of two interviews along with a skills assessment. Be on the lookout for an ‘@belaysolutions.com’ email address once your application is submitted. Most candidates move from initial interview to final interview within a week or two.
Our available positions are posted to our website, Indeed, Glassdoor, LinkUp, ZipRecruiter, Monster, Facebook, Flexjobs, Remote.co, and Virtual Vocations. We don’t post to other classified advertisement websites unless listed previously.
Currently, all of our positions require full daytime availability and are not project based. If you are working in an office or “on demand” to another position, we would consider this a conflict of interest.
Most contractors have at least some college, with over 75% having at least a bachelor’s degree. Most of them come to us with years of experience in a professional career of some sort.
