Our Team


REassist team members are primarily University Graduates.

English is taught in all schools from primary school onwards making the Philippines the world’s third largest English-speaking country. With a literacy rate at over 94% the Philippines towers over other Asian and Indian nations in this regard.

The combined Philippine public and private university system produces thousands of graduates per year. This includes but is not limited to degrees in business administration, accounting, marketing & communications, computer science and programming.

The Philippine work ethic makes for fantastic candidates who treasure their roles and are prepared to work to their utmost to ensure that the employer sees their value. The reward is the ability to work in a team environment, in a pleasant admin friendly office and to have a regular salary that is appropriate to their skill set.
