New job matching app Hela Job brings together business owners in need of local, part-time workers and job seekers looking for jobs in their neighbourhood. Founder and CEO Ioannis Antypas said: “While most job apps help companies find workers around the world, we help companies find workers around the corner.”
Launched first in London before rolling out to other UK cities, the smartphone app offers real-time tracking to show when a new employee is on the way; built-in messaging; one-click job requests and acceptances; advanced scheduling for peak hours, emergency cover or holiday cover; and 24/7 support for employers and job seekers.
App user Sia Tehrani, who works part-time at a London coffee shop, said: “I like the freedom the app gives me. When I want to work, I’ll turn it on and make myself available. When I don’t want to work, I’ll turn it off. I’m in charge of my work schedule and I love it!”. The Hela Job Seeker app is available for Android and iOS.
