Gigstr offers online and offline support, a help centr and staffing tips to make hiring for your gig as seamless as possible. We can even help you set up your account, as well as hand pick and schedule your gigstrs. We’re here for you every step of the way.

First interview sorted

Gigstr sources and screens suitable students based on your needs. We can search within our community of 15,000+ gigstrs and beyond. This ensures we’re able to handle a diverse range of requests and needs.

We quality-assure our community

All gigstrs need to upload a profile picture, digital resume, and verify their phone and email. We complete background checks and confirm a student's right to work. Upon completion of a gig, both parties provide reviews to maintain a high level of professionalism.

Top students, seamlessly

Once a job offer is shared with a candidate, hours and salary are agreed. All staff are employed by Gigstr, and we handle employer liabilities, taxes and payments. This is included in the hourly rate and you never pay for more hours than those a gigstr works for you.
