Enable employers to intelligently connect with active talent & for contractors to seek opportunities designed for them

This talent marketplace is the perfect solution for anyone looking to match employers and contractors in an intelligent way. It can be used internally as a tool for medium to large businesses or as a way for existing / new businesses to create a new revenue stream.

For employers, it gives companies complete visibility over talent pools they wouldn’t otherwise have had. Employers can see when a quality candidate is green lit (ready to accept new contracts) and proactively contact them directly with an offer.

As a candidate seeking flexible work contracts, this solution is ideal. It has APIs which can enable it to integrate with alternative candidate sources to assist in setting up profiles (e.g. LinkedIn *).  Alternatively, candidates can create profiles themselves. Candidates are able to keep their skills up to date empowering them to be in control.

The freelancer simply needs to update their availability in the calendar to show employers when they are ready to consider new roles.

* Special conditions apply for LinkedIn integration.

As a Candidate / Professional 

As a Freelancer – creating a profile is made easy with LinkedIn authentication
The real magic of this contractor marketplace is that it enables talent and employers to find each other at the right time. By setting the availability status, employers can offer jobs when and where it suits.
They can customise their work preferences by adding personal skills, pay rate and locations they are willing to work to make it easy for employers to find them for suitable opportunities.
Each opportunity is relevant and targeted. Employers shortlist the candidate profile for review based on a suitable match of the specific skill set, location and availability. They then send the job brief directly to accept or decline.
Once employers have contacted and negotiated the terms of work, they send the offer. The process turns the contractor’s availability status “lights” from green to red.


  • Intelligent matching of their skills, experience, suitability and availability with casual/permanent jobs
  • Improve their continuity of work based on their available time
  • Enables them to by-pass the time-consuming approach of pitching to recruitment agencies
  • Optional fast creation and auto-update of experience/skills profile by linking to their LinkedIn account
