A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an individual who provides support to businesses, assisting them remotely or “virtually” with a variety of day-to-day tasks.
Our Virtual Assistants come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. They have an average of 5 years’ professional experience before they join our team with ambition, passion and discipline to work remotely. Once hired, they are trained in-house, for a month, on over 50 business and executive related tasks.
Your VAs are available Mon – Fri from 9 AM to 6 PM
Fortunately, because of the time we put into our unique matching process at Nimble, it’s very rare for a client not to gel with their VA. In case you ever feel frustrated or fed up, at any point whatsoever, you simply get in touch with your dedicated Client Success Manager and let them know how you feel. They’ll work with you to resolve the situation.
Your Virtual Assistant will work anything from 40 to 150 hours per month with Nimble, depending on their schedule and existing commitments. That means one Virtual Assistant may fill their entire month with one larger client, or may work with a mix of smaller clients.
Our Virtual Assistants first apply to us and complete a very extensive application form, which includes uploading their CV, submitting a professional LinkedIn profile and providing strong references.
Individuals who particularly stand out from the crowd then pass through several other stages, including a round of assessments, a tough interview with our Recruitment Manager and a final meeting with our Co-Founder to ensure that they’ll fit in well with our growth-focused culture here at Nimble Remote Subscription Staffing.
Fewer than 2% of those who apply get to work with our clients.
All of our Virtual Assistants pass through a tough selection process (less than 2% of applicants are successful) which checks their suitability using a number of in-depth checks and measures. Each Virtual Assistant truly is handpicked to join our team.
We also carry out a background and identity checks and we secure at least 2 references from previous employers or clients.

Yes, our plans are flexible. You can start with one plan and upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your subscription at any time.
We offer monthly subscription plans to our clients for the ability to retain a Virtual Assistant. While each plan offers a different level of service, as a membership subscription our plan hours do not roll over.
Our plans are all inclusive. Assign your staff a company email address, share your monthly plan with other members of your team, and have your remote staff work with your favorite online project management tools. It’s all part of your monthly plan features. The only time additional fees are applied is if you choose to use design or Web services, which are charged separately from your regular plan.
Our team members work during business hours, Monday to Friday.
Nimble observes all national holidays in India. Your Virtual Assistant will not be available on New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Diwali, Holi, Independence Day (US and India), Republic day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.
Your Virtual Assistant can take up to 22 leaves annually, divided into 15 Privilege leaves accrued every month and 7 Sick leaves.
Yes! Even the best people get sick from time to time, take a vacation, or need to take time off for personal reasons. We won’t leave you stranded and provide you with a backup so that they can step in to cover them when the need arises.
Yes! Your Virtual Assistant can place orders and make purchases safely and securely on your behalf. To share credit card information, passwords, and other sensitive data, simply have your Virtual Assistant collect your information over the phone. This way, we can ensure your information remains safe.
All our Virtual Assistants have signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) covering the protection of your information and intellectual property. In addition, take advantage of cloud technologies and save information and files on cloud-based platforms like Dropbox or Google Drive. This means that your sensitive information is stored centrally rather than on an individual’s personal computer. Breach of NDA by an employee through leakage of any client information will lead to strict civil and criminal legal actions being taken against such employees(s).
While all of our employees go through a rigorous interview and vetting process, we recommend that you first establish a working relationship with your Virtual Assistant so that you feel comfortable before you share this type of information. If you do decide to divulge confidential information, do it methodically and one step at a time, and we recommend that you use a secure sharing system for passwords and credit card information.
