It’s easy to become a Poster, and it’s always free to create a listing. A job seeker can sign up with us and list him/herself as an Employee for Hirers to find. An individual who represents an organization (such as employment agency or a company) can sign up and list their available employees.
Hirers need to fill in details of their company when they send a hiring request to you. This info helps make sure you know who to expect and decide if you want to accept a hirer’s job offer. Hirers are expected, but not required, to have a profile picture.
Signing up on Spare Staff and listing an Employee profile is completely free. When you receive a job offer and accept it, your hirer will assign rosters to you. When the hirer is ready for you to start work, they will need to activate and fund the next roster. Funds are securely held in our escrow system. Once you’ve delivered the work to the hirer’s satisfaction, the hirer will then release the payment. We will deduct a Spare Staff service fee from this payment and send you a payout. The service fee is generally 5%, to help cover the cost of running of the business.
All the reviews on Spare Staff are written by posters and hirers from our community, so any review you see is based on a hiring that a hirer had in a poster’s listing. Reviews are written when either a hirer or poster ends a hiring contract. You can find reviews about you and reviews written by you under your profile page. You can read reviews about another user under his/her public profile page.
Yes. You can create multiple profile listings for yourself in the same or different industries. This helps you to attract Hirers from different types of companies. For example: John Doe is taking a web programming course at university and also has had several work experiences in hospitality, John can create a “Website programmer developer” listing in “Web Development & Production” category to get jobs in his preferred industry, and an “Experienced restaurant, bar waiter” listing in “Hospitality & Tourism” category to get jobs in hospitality. However you should avoid spamming your listings so that your listing is seen by many hirers.
