Introducing Jobhop

 

Breaking down barriers to work across New Zealand

Jobhop is a web-based advertising platform for individuals to connect with businesses and private households who need work done. Our mission is to break down barriers to work in New Zealand and make it easier to find and pay people for general labour work. Our vision is based around helping other people (that's where the HOP comes from!) to find local work and workers when they need them. Jobhop opens up opportunity for people who may not have the capacity to work full days on a routine basis and it also provides a means for quick access to income when it's needed most.

 

The Journey

Jobhop was created as a custom solution to support people who are seeking work - we provide a means to build work history and soft skills, as well as a way to access quick income when needed. Jobhop is built around people, community and innovation. Our platform doesn't mean anything if we don't have the Job Providers and Job Hoppers to use it and we believe that the relationships built by connecting people will contribute to creating more resilient communities. 

It's been a journey of more than a year to get the platform developed and our team has put a lot of energy into solving the issues around barriers to work. We've worked with government organisations to find needs and address them, and are always taking user feedback on board so we can keep innovating to make it as simple as possible. We continue to develop our relationships with these organisations so that we can continually improve our product and ensure it's serving its purpose of helping people get work when they need it.

Jobhop is registered with the Financial Markets Authority (FMA), Financial Disputes Resolution Scheme (FDRS), as a Financial Services Provider (FSP), and with the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) for Anti-Money Laundering reporting.

The Team

Our team and advisors bring a range of skills and experience to the company - strategy, design, marketing, treaty negotiation, project management, trades experience, local government experience - and many of us have run our own businesses as well. We were inspired by the idea of removing barriers that keep people from getting into work and have come together to bring you Jobhop.
