Apply as a Key Assistant

Key Assistants (also known as KA's) are known as the “face” of the company. Although your client(s) may never actually see your face, you will be their “go to” person for all needs and wants within the company. The main duties of a Key Assistant are to speak with each of their clients at least once per week, update weekly client agendas, maintain client budgets and delegate the client's work to the correct team within Best Agent Business. We ensure deadlines are met, work is satisfactory and that the client is happy! Key Assistants play a very important role in helping our clients understand Best Agent Business as a whole and exactly how each of our various teams work.

As with all jobs within Lifebushido, the Key Assistant role is flexible. However, since Key Assistant's work directly with the client it is essential that you are available during normal business hours (8:00 - 5:00 EST). We normally recommend either a chunk of hours (for example 8:00-1:00/9:00-2:00) OR a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the afternoon. With this being said, we do not typically hire individuals that have full-time jobs or those that are full-time students if they are not available to the extent that they can maintain flexible hours. Also, although we are a “family friendly” company you will need to have a completely noise-free background during ALL of your calls with clients in order to maintain professionalism.

Key Assistants work a minimum of 15 to 25 hours, but no more than 25 hours per week depending on the number of clients they have. Key Assistant compensation starts at $10.00 an hour with target of $15.00 an hour or more after one year with base + bonus pay structure.

Training - first 2-3 months is exposure to all parts of company including Customer Service Calling, Marketing, Real Estate, Lead/Database Mgt. Usual path is starting 5 hours per week and growing 5 to 10 to 15 to 20 hours with about 15 hours calling and 5 hours non-calling and then as shifted to KA becomes typical 20 hours non-calling and 5 hours calling.
