A Welcome Message from the WorkLocally Admin team

admin

Woohoo! Welcome to our brand spanking new website!
We’ve been super busy getting it ready and pre-approved by various regulators. Very proud of each person involved with the project – for soooo many years now.

So what is it?
WorkLocally is a service based website that allows Job Posters (the general public / home owners) to submit online domestic job adverts (for FREE) for work to be undertaken in or around their home i.e., home plumbing, home electrical, carpentry or gardening type services, etc. Job Seekers (Suppliers/ Traders / Independents) can subscribe to WorkLocally enabling them to create their own profile, set their own search criteria & find jobs submitted by Job Posters.

So how does this differ from other similar sites that you’ve heard from?
Transparency. We don’t hide behind a shroud of anonymity. We don’t mask any feedback. We keep it real. We check people out through our verification process and limit what they can quote on if they don’t want to be checked out. We don’t just only publish positive comments onto WorkLocally unlike others. We listen. Something not working – tell us, we’ll fix it, or try to make it a better user experience. We also integrate top tech into our site to make it EASIER for YOU.

What’s more – JOB POSTERS pay nothing – never, ever. Job Seekers? Want to find some work, initially free, but we need to keep the engine room running. Operating this beast isn’t cheap or free – I hope you understand.

Why WorkLocally?
To put YOU in control. YOU decide who you want to award your job to. YOU choose based on information presented to you on who to award your job to. Job Seekers – Making your life simpler and easier. We know how hard it is to find job leads… I hope this site adds value. Most importantly – WorkLocally, secret in the name. Why spend 2hrs a day getting to work, burning time, fuel and enduring traffic when jobs are around the corner. Spend more time with the family, that’s what life is about. Also, more eco-friendly. Look after the planet … it’s the only one we have!

Why has it taken so long to bring this product to market?
Immense coding and testing to get it right. It takes years. Seriously, years to pull this site together.

Feedback
Please tell us, let us know your thoughts – good or bad. We’re quite thick skinned, but we listen. If we don’t know we can’t fix it. The site will always be improved to make it easier for you. Let us know and we’ll add to our feature list.

Final message
Mobile site is on the way! We really hope you find this site useful. We are progressively building and improving the site, it will get easier, simpler, better and more user friendly.

Hope this site helps you – Job Posters to get stuff done. Also to those Job Seekers looking to find work. We know it’s not easy out there hence the reason for developing this site to enable you to find local work.

Lastly, this site is not just for homeowners. Commerical companies can join and post out work they need doing too.

All the best.

The WorkLocally Admin team.

Oh No! I forgot about my pet cat

Vikki Frost

As my holiday fast approaches I’m sitting here feeling like I have forgotten something?

Then it hits me!! I’ve forgotten to arrange for someone to look after our cat. Holly – my cat, doesn’t look too impressed either. At the grand old age of 20, she has now succumbed to many of life’s little luxuries.

Even though I think Holly would like nothing more than to jet off too sunny Majorca for 7 days lazing around all day, she hate’s traveling – not that we would even contemplate taking her with us. Even a short trip to the vets turns into a 20 min struggle to get her into her basket, fighting 4-legs whilst I’m trying not to get scratched. She may be 20 years old, but she still has some fight left in her!

I now have 2 options, I either book her a 7 night stay at the local cattery, letting her think I’ve put her up for adoption and that we’re not coming back for her, also meaning I would now have to trawl through lots of cattery’s looking for one that I am happy with, or I find a trusted cat sitter to come to my house and look after her, where she can stay stress free in the comfort of her own home.

That’s where WORKLOCALLY was a god send, I was able to Post a Job and wait for potential interested cat sitters to quote on my job (local Job Seekers) and come directly to me. I was able to search their WORKLOCALLY profile for those who quoted and read reviews from other pet owners before deciding who to award my job to. When my job countdown timer end, myself and Holly was able to go through and choose someone that we felt comfortable with.

After awarding the job to someone we thought was best suited, we were finally able to meet Jenny just to make sure she was the right person for the job.
I got to enjoy my holiday, knowing that Holly was in the best possible care and she got to be pampered by the cat sitter for a week stress free.

By the look on her face I’m not 100% sure she is over the moon to have us back.
