Time Etc. is a well-known company that frequently hires home-based virtual assistants. They were founded in 2007 and claim to handle more than 20,000 tasks per month for their various clients. These clients are primarily business owners and entrepreneurs based in the US and UK.
If you meet Time Etc.'s requirements, you may be able to get a job working for them from home as a VA (virtual assistant).
I always try to let you know whether or not a company hires worldwide, and I can't find that information posted on the Time Etc. website. Because they have clients in the US and UK, I would assume that they hire from both of these places. It does say on the application that you need good English skills to qualify to work for them.
What kind of work do you do for Time Etc.?

So you may be writing blog posts, scheduling appointments, doing research, filling out forms, making travel arrangements, and so on. The sky is the limit when it comes to the services VA's provide.
One good thing about this type of work is that because your tasks may vary so much, the work is not likely to get repetitive and boring.
