JOB OVERVIEW

Good day,

I run a small eCommerce company with my business partner, we are based out of Canada but conduct our business primarily on Amazon.com in the US.

We are currently looking for a full time VA to take charge of our Product Sourcing. Please review the job description below.

Job Description:
Search and prepare a list of potential suppliers from Alibaba.com and other sources. We will provide complete training for the whole process and outline our strict criteria for sourcing. The candidate would then spend majority of the day preparing and organizing a list of potential suppliers based on a list of products we provide. The chosen candidate would also need to explain why a supplier was chosen and would need to prepare a report showing potential profit from each product. Again, we will provide a template for this and provide training. Please note: we primarily source from China, but would be interested in sourcing from other countries as well.??

Schedule:
Job type: Full time
Days per week: 5 days per week
Hours per day: 6 - 8 hours
Hours per week: 30 - 40 hours
Time of work: Flexible
Wage per hour: $2 - $3 (Depending on experience)
We will have preset weekly meeting on Skype to discuss progress and to provide feedback. ??

Skills:
Thorough understanding of Alibaba and other sourcing websites
Excellent communication skills
Proficient with computers
Good knowledge of MS Office products (Especially excel)
Keen eye for sourcing
Good organizational skills
Fluent in English

The ideal candidate would have at least 2 years of experience with Sourcing (ideally for Amazon sellers). We prefer to work with candidates that have prior experience, however we will provide full training. It is important to us that we hire someone with excellent communication skills, is fluent in English and has a strong desire to learn. The hourly wage rate will depend on the level of experience.

We are looking for someone who who is interested in building a long term business relation. You will grow with us as our business grows. If you are looking for a short term position with us, we probably wouldn’t be a good fit for each other.

To weed out potential freelancers who don’t read the job description: Please state the name of the prime minister of Canada

Please note:
1) We have several software that we use to monitor work and progress. Knowledge of these products is helpful but not a requirement and we will provide access to any paid software.?
- Monday - for managing projects

- Dropbox - for file sharing
- Microsoft office (excel) and google suite products
- Helium10 and Jungle scout

2) This job is not to be delegated and is meant solely for one person. We do not deal with agencies. There will be several software that can only be used on one machine, so we request agencies not to contact us as we cannot work with you at this time.

If you have fully read job requirements and feel you are good candidate for the position. Please apply with your resume and cover letter. Also, don’t forget to address the secret question in the job description. If we are interested, we will contact you to schedule an interview.

Thank you so much and have a wonderful day!
