The Job Auction
The Job Auction is a jobs board with a USP. You’ll find regular part-time & full-time roles listed with us but we also offer something unique. What’s the USP? -Auctions! >With us you get to bid for and auction off tasks or work. You can also advertise your skills on there and create a public profile to showcase these. We work tirelessly to marry clients to one another professionally by putting the power in the hands of the users. You set the price of the work and it can only go as low or as high as you and the potential employee agree.
Why not market your business? If you are a freelancer or sole trader or even a company, you can create a public profile (instead of private) and get noticed by prospective clients or employees visiting the site. The in-built messaging system is very easy to use. o you can interact with ease.
We’re always adding features to the website. As well as auctions, you can also advertise a one-off-task. Say you’re moving house and want assistance. Tasks don’t have to be on-off, they can be recurring.
Unlike some task job sites, where communication is required via constant messaging to determine who will carry out the job for the best rate, The Job Auction has built in technology which lists bids in a simple fashion and keeps track of them for you.
We’ve implemented AI on the webiste in partnership with IBM to better match the right candidate to the right role.
