LIMBER POOL

How it works

Step 1

Chat to businesses in your area and see who is interested in teaming up. You’ll need at least 5 other businesses to qualify.

Step 2

Register your interest and our team will arrange a time to speak with you. You can do that here: https://form.typeform.com/to/EooKg9PA

Step 3

We help you setup up your very own community website which you’ll advertise to flexible workers. That website will enable workers to sign up to limber in association with your community and pick up flexible shifts at your sites.

Step 4

You and the businesses within your community use limber as normal - posting your shifts on the platform and choosing who you want to hire.

Step 5

You can hire any worker who has joined in association with your community free of charge and if you want to hire anyone from the wider pool, then you’ll pay the usual 10% fee.
