How will the intake proceed?

GIGHOUSE employs different sources to enrich its database with the right freelancers. First of all, freelancers sign up on the mobile app that we promote via the web & social media. Secondly, GIGHOUSE also participates in many events and fairs through which we get in touch with freelancers all over Belgium. Finally, our consultants actively search for the most qualitative freelancers on the market, through all kinds of channels. In all these cases, the freelancers and their skills are carefully screened.

How does the screening of freelancers work?

When freelancers register on the mobile application, they are asked to provide the contact details of three employers they have worked with. Our consultants check these references and discuss the competences of the freelancer during a personal interview. During these meetings, we mainly verify whether the competences listed, correspond to the experience that former clients had/have. After each phone call, the profile of the freelancer is further completed and references are added to their profile. The freelancers are contacted by phone upon registration so GIGHOUSE can get an idea of their strengths, weaknesses and preferences.

How does GIGHOUSE find the best freelancer for my project?

Our matching process is supported by a strong and intelligent matching software that enables us to make a very fast qualitative matching. Our consultants always do a final check before freelancers are referred to a client.

Is there a guarantee that GIGHOUSE will find the right freelancer within a certain time frame?
