International IT company GFT UK, has today launched iJobs, its very own, free iPhone app, which will allow IT freelancers to have mobile access to job offers.
This convenient service is meeting the need for high flexibility from this category of professionals, who are permanently busy on-site with regularly changing clients.
Whether for national or international projects, short- or long-term assignments, with iJobs, IT freelancers can search for jobs either by preferred country and location, or by keyword denoting the required skills. Offers that match stored search profiles are sent to prospective candidates by email and can be accessed directly via an iPhone.
IT freelancers are always busy on the client site or moving regularly to new projects. They therefore need to have a high level of mobility and flexibility. Alex Visram, Resourcing Sales Director explains, "with the iPhone app we can increase our partners' flexibility and offer mobile access to interesting projects with leading companies throughout the world. They are also able to focus entirely on the project in hand as, with this service they can access the relevant contract and invoice data at any time and anywhere."
Long-standing GFT freelancer, Carl Lloyd, commented "it's often difficult to keep up-to-date with new work whilst you're on-site, but with this app I find it much easier to manage my professional life and keep the pipeline of exciting new projects flowing".
GFT piloted the app with 100 users at CeBIT in March and has recently completed the certification process with Apple, allowing a roll out across the UK.
Depending upon the status of the freelancers' relationship with GFT, there is also the possibility of querying the status of their current contract and invoice data at any time via My Invoice. This service allows registered partners of GFT's Resourcing division to see, at a glance, whether the invoice has already been checked by the end client and whether GFT has already instructed payment.
An integrated push service will follow soon.
