The Square

The Square is the first automated hiring application for the construction industry.

Our challenge:

 

The construction industry is not known for its adoption of innovative technology. How could we create an incredibly simple and intuitive mobile product that allows recruiters to attract and engage candidates in a fractured industry that is heavily resistant to change.

 

We simplified the complex and multi-faceted world of trade recruitment, from the job seekers search journey through to the backend tools recruiters require to manage their on-demand staff.

Our product has allowed the founding team behind The Square to raise a significant seed round led by a number of construction industry veterans.  

 

The platform has been adopted at pilot stage by Dandara:

"As an employer of 1500 skilled construction workers, The Square is a breath of fresh air. Our team on the ground will be able to source local workers much more efficiently."
