An innovative website has been launched today [Monday 19th December] that aims to match people in the Aberdeen area who need odd jobs done to those who have the right skills. www.myoddjobs.co.uk is a website that will help you to find the perfect person for tasks from babysitting to washing the car and decorating the house to walking the dog. Founder Gerry Verner has created the easy to use website as a central location to post and find jobs securely, locally and for free. www.myoddjobs.co.uk also offers a feedback service which allows users to rate their experience guaranteeing high quality work and professionalism.
Gerry says, “Heavy workloads, looking after children and working long hours mean we now have less time to do the little things. These can really pile up and so when it comes to the weekend you can have a list as long as your arm of things to do. www.myoddjobs.co.uk is an online marketplace that brings workers and homeowners together, offering a secure message board that promotes and supports high-quality work.
“For example if you have a last minute babysitting emergency www.myoddjobs.co.uk is here to help. Simply post the details to our friendly community board and you can expect replies from suitable people who have been rated by their peers. Similarly if you are looking for some extra work and can do a couple of hours of ironing a week, you can sign in to view the jobs available.
www.myoddjobs.co.uk can also be used by professionals, who are looking for some extra jobs or looking to hire additional workers. Contractors including painters, plumbers and gardeners can register and see what services are required in their area. Through a simple feedback system, workers can then be rated on their workmanship by those who hire them, which makes it easier to find high quality help, and for workers to find good quality jobs.
Gerry continues, “Through www.myoddjobs.co.uk I hope to offer a secure place to find help that you didn’t know was there. At the moment it just covers the north east of Scotland but I hope to expand across Scotland within the next year. Already there is a huge amount of interest from across the whole UK, which is great because soon people will be able to choose from a large, diverse and secure database for all their ‘odd job’ needs.”
