Conscious Hiring: Be Part of Something Bigger
At 20four7VA, our mission is to enrich the lives of remote workers worldwide by providing them with financially rewarding international work opportunities.
We partnered with South Africa-based organizations Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator, a non-profit social enterprise, and Loomee Group, a training and employment center.
Harambee aims to solve local youth unemployment by removing systemic barriers and providing young South African women with the training and resources they need to secure sustainable work opportunities locally and globally.
Loomee offers a state-of-the-art training and working facility that provides these young women with a safe, healthy, and secure environment where they can thrive and pursue sustainable work opportunities.

Why Hire our Buffalo City VAs?
Ensure consistency of service with a 100% power and internet uptime guaranteed SLA provided by our partner call center in South Africa. You never have to worry about internet or power interruptions putting crucial business matters on hold again.
VAs in the Buffalo City VA Program have gone through 8 weeks of in-depth training to ensure that they are ready to work. They are first trained by our partner call center, Loomee, for 5 weeks. After graduating, they go through 3 more weeks of training with 20four7VA.
With Harambee’s careful selection process and our holistic 8-week training program, your VAs are sure to be engaged and highly motivated. A motivated and inspired VA with a rewarding job means a lower chance of staff turnover and a bigger return on your investment.
High-speed internet and a professional environment allow your VAs to focus on your work without being distracted by outside influences. A professional environment will also reduce workplace stress for your VA and improve their productivity.
Why South Africa?
South Africa has been steadily gaining ground as a top outsourcing location for admin and customer support services in recent years. Just last year, South Africa was hailed as the Most Favored Offshore CX (Customer Experience) Delivery Location for 2021 by the Ryan Strategic Advisory Front Office BPO Omnibus Survey, beating out 53 other locations including global offshore outsourcing leaders India, Poland, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
A skilled English-speaking workforce, state-of-the-art infrastructure that supports the offshore outsourcing industry, and a strong customer-oriented attitude are just some of the main reasons why outsourcing your admin and customer support tasks to South African VAs is the way to go.
