$10 per hour is rather an exception. The absolute majority of the global 
workforce does not have an access to this type of salaries. Still it is 
stated in the requirements that "... a base in the UK would make some 
things easier, but it's not required ..."

So $10 per hour could be a good money for many potential candidates, 
besides, - "...The position is part-time, 2 days per week. ... The 
assistant will work from home...". So the colleague will not have to 
spend on daily transportation, office clothing & cafeteria, etc. In 
general such a set-up could be the only possibility to work in many 
cases. It was very thoughtful to state it in the job description clearly.
