What is the salary of an Assistant Development Manager?

The assistant development manager’s salary can vary. Because an assistant development manager’s duties cover a wide range, the job description is one factor in compensation. Other factors include education, experience, and type of firm. The primary driver of salary, however, is location. Some countries, such as the Philippines, are known for their low labor costs.
To demonstrate the low labor costs in the Philippines, we’ve developed a table. The table shows the average salary of an assistant development manager in several higher-cost countries vs. the Philippines. The differences are dramatic, even more so, because the salaries shown for all the countries except the Philippines fail to include any extra costs such as insurance payments or government fees. However, the salary figures for Filipino workers include the additional charges and ShoreAgents fees.

An assistant development manager is a highly-credentialed professional position. Salary variances between many countries and the Philippines for this position are broad. Indeed, salaries in the Philippines are about one-fourth to one-third of those in Canada, the United States, New Zealand, and Australia. They are less than half those of the United Kingdom and Singapore.
Philippines-based ShoreAgents specializes in staffing for the real estate and property development industries. Because of our location, we can provide cost-effective virtual employees in all specialties.

Can an Assistant Development Manager work virtually?

Given the cost savings of outsourcing to the Philippines, a common question is whether the assistant development manager can complete their duties from the Philippines. The answer is Absolutely!
However, you’ll need to make a few investments to make the arrangement work, especially if this is your first virtual employee:
1. You’ll need the buy-in of other team members.
2. You’ll need to ensure your job description is clear and indicates realistic expectations.
3. You’ll want task management software to help the assistant development manager prioritize their tasks.
If you’re committed to the idea of a virtual assistant development manager, ShoreAgents can help you make the preparations and investments necessary for a successful relationship.

Local Assistant Development Manager Vs. Virtual Assistant Development Manager

A virtual assistant development manager can net you several benefits you can’t receive from a local assistant development manager.
A Philippines-based virtual assistant development property manager is a highly cost-effective staffing solution. Firms in many countries could hire three Filipino assistant development managers for the cost of one local assistant development manager.
A virtual assistant property manager also saves you money because you don’t have to find space or equipment for them in your office. ShoreAgents’ virtual assistant property managers sit in a comfortable office, and we provide their desk, computer, monitors, webcams, desks, and headsets.
If you’re like most property development business owners, you struggle to finish your to-do list every day. You’ve also probably found that you’re most productive when you do what you love and have skills for. Chances are hiring is not one of your favorite tasks or one you’ve trained for.
If you hire a local person, you’ll have to do all the work yourself. Your to-do list will get longer instead of shorter.
Hiring a virtual assistant development manager is an excellent way to manage your time. If you contract with ShoreAgents, we’ll do the most time-consuming aspects of hiring for you. We’ll hone your job description, recruit from our extensive network, and present you with a small group of finalists. You choose the one you think will work best in your firm.
The Philippines provides a large, well-educated workforce. ShoreAgents has a vast network of real estate and property development contacts. ShoreAgents and the Philippines are a winning combination. You’ll get a highly qualified assistant development manager who really knows the business.
One of the most frustrating and expensive aspects of human resources management is turnover. If an employee leaves soon after you hire them, you’ve got to start the process all over again.
ShoreAgents is an experienced staffing firm, and we know how to improve employee retention. We ensure a collegial and comfortable work environment so that your assistant development manager will enjoy coming to work every day. They’ll receive support and best practices from their colleagues who perform similar jobs for other companies. We also ensure your virtual assistant development manager receives ongoing continuing education to improve their knowledge and keep them engaged.
Any worthwhile undertaking has some challenges. Hiring a virtual assistant development manager has many benefits. Still, you do need to be willing to make some adjustments at your firm, especially if you’ve never worked with a virtual team member before. These adjustments are minor and include setting appropriate expectations and investing in time management software.
Consider the benefits you’ll gain from making a few changes. ShoreAgents will coach and help you every step of the way.
Obviously, it’s your decision. But we believe you’ll be glad you decided to partner with us to hire your assistant development manager.

They are also proficient at reading construction drawings. Organizational and analytical skills are excellent, and they work well under pressure.

Assistant Development Manager Role

Most of the typical assistant development manager’s responsibilities can be completed remotely.
To demonstrate this, we’ve established a table. We’ve marked the duties the assistant development manager can perform virtually with a check. If only an in-person team member can perform the task, we’ve given it a cross. We’ve marked those tasks that are primarily virtual but need some in-person work with both a check and a cross.

The assistant development manager and the development manager work together as a team. The assistant development manager can perform most duties from anywhere. Some tasks, such as examining the feasibility of new sites, liaising with government bodies, and implementing business process improvements, may require in-person work from the director. In most cases, however, the director would work with the assistant in performing these tasks anyway.
