Thanks for asking
We’ve collected some of the most popular questions asked by applicants as a resource for you.
What is subscription staffing?
It used to be that to get the most talented people to work for them, companies had to find, recruit, and employ talent directly, with the myriad complexities hiring entails, from legal to payroll to HR administration.
But now a change has happened. Just as many of us subscribe to services like Netflix, or Amazon Prime for the convenience they offer, companies are now subscribing to the things they need to run their business. That includes subscribing to highly-qualified long-term staff, rather than employing them directly.
Instead, subscription staffing company Boldly employs a team of world-class marketers, project managers, executive assistants, and more—and makes them available on a long-term basis, allowing businesses to quickly get hand-matched remote talent for the exact number of hours they need each month with the convenience of a simple monthly payment.
Subscription staffing isn't just good for businesses, it's great for employees too. Boldly is a remote-first, employee focused company, offering our talented team the freedom to build their own schedules, work remotely, and contribute to amazing businesses while developing their own fulfilling careers.
How is Boldly different from a virtual assistant company?
Most VA companies will recruit you as a contractor/ freelancer with no benefits and no guarantee of work. You are usually part of an impersonal platform and put on a roster of available bodies to assist companies with random tasks. You never get to meet with the companies you support beforehand and there is no guarantee of the hours or the work that you’ll do. It’s hit and miss to say the least.
At Boldy you are a W2 employee. This means our company works just like any other high performing company with the added benefit of being 100% remote with flexible hours. The companies that you support are committed long-term and you get to meet with the executives you'll be working with before you decide to work together, so that you can be sure it's a good match.
QUALIFYING TO JOIN BOLDLY
What level of experience do I need?
Boldly team members all have at least 7 years of experience in their field of specialty. You are welcome to apply if you’ve had a gap in your career as long as overall, you have at least 7 years of professional experience.
How many hours a week am I expected to work?
Boldly team members are expected to work a minimum of 20 hours a week (which is 4 hours a day) during business hours. If you are looking to work for less than 20 hours a week, unfortunately, you will be automatically disqualified.
I already have a full-time job. Can I work for Boldly for just a few hours a week?
No. Boldly is a career choice in and of itself. We only accept candidates who are available daily during business hours, and who are able to dedicate at least 20hrs/week to work with Boldly.
I currently work freelance. Can I supplement that by working for Boldly?
Yes, as long as your freelance work is outside of the 20+ business hours that you would dedicate to working for Boldly.
Where do I need to live to qualify to join the Boldly team?
We're currently hiring in the following 23 States, as well as Canada, and Europe: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington.
Why are you only hiring in certain US states if the job is remote?
Even though the job is remote, employment is based on the location that the work is performed, and as an employer there is a significant amount of administrative complexity and cost involved in managing employment in each state. As such, we have chosen a select number of states to hire in, which we review periodically. (Active duty military spouses may elect to use either their domicile address or their current residence as long as one of them is in a state that we are hiring.)
