TheJobApp has launched its eponymous app, to match up people looking for work in the gig economy with businesses currently struggling to find staff. The app also offers a solution to pay workers immediately at the end of each shift.

As Government support for businesses comes to an end across the country, thousands of workers are expected to become available. A key economic strategy to help fill the huge skill gap is to entice as many of these workers as possible to become part of the gig economy and quickly fill the huge shortages impacting so many sectors and supply chains across the UK.  

The app enables businesses to easily find local shift workers who match their specific criteria, rather than using their own networks or temp agencies. It offers a fully automated service, managing tax and NI deductions, payroll, and customer service.

“We are launching TheJobApp to help businesses across the UK with a cost-effective solution to source the best talent, and also offering millions of shift workers the chance to earn a salary as soon as their shift finishes,” said TheJobApp CEO, Lee Purvis. “Having previously managed organisations with huge requirements for shift workers, the founders of TheJobApp know first-hand the difficulty, problems, and costs involved in filling these temporary positions and how critical finding the right staff is. Being the only solution to pay staff immediately we believe is a complete game-changer and will benefit both the employees and the recruiters.” 

TheJobApp is available now for iOS and Android.
