Meet New People
We find it amazing that the average person has 300 friends on social media but 1 in 10 of us have no close friends and 86% of us confess to feeling lonely. There are also over 1.5 million 16-24 year olds in the UK alone not in employment, education or with any formal training.
Pickle gives connects you to friends you haven’t met yet, puts you in touch with like-minded people who want to have and share similar experiences with you and lets you make money while doing so. Don’t know about you but that sounds like a win-win.
Make some money
Ever thought: “I have no idea how to make more money,” “These student loans are a joke and I need a part time job,” or “Is there a job centre for the skills that I currently have?”
On Pickle, people are willing to pay you to go to the shops and pick up items for same day delivery, help assemble flat pack furniture or even design a creative CV! No matter the task, there’ll be someone on Pickle waiting for your help. Fill out your skills within your job profile, tell us a little bit about yourself and then apply for jobs!
At Pickle we are extremely proud of the fact that on our app there are no middle-men and our users do not work for Pickle by signing a contract. Rather, we empower you to work for yourself and be your own boss. You decide if you where you want to and how many hours you’re willing to put in and what jobs you want to do.
So whether you want to work from home, or to use us to take on part-time gigs, take on after school jobs or find part time jobs or even become a full-time Pickler… you decide how to use Pickle, we just connect you to the opportunities.
Yep, you heard us right, you can get paid to do dares on Pickle! Imagine getting paid to take on the cinnamon challenge, sally challenge or the ice-bucket challenge. You can even get paid for eating a jar of marmite, going to McDonald’s to order things off the KFC menu or shaving your hair! Minus the money you get paid it’s an opportunity to organically increase your social media followers and be globally recognised for your general ‘bad-assness’.
Maybe you’re a watcher? Why not set dares for people to do and watch applications roll in for people willing to do the dare! Respond to comments from other people on the app who might be willing to give you more bang for your buck or just interested in the dare itself and negotiate on the terms and conditions. At the end of the day, you choose who your player is!
So are you the next PewDiePie or Ben Philips…. Do you have the Nerve to follow through and share your awesomeness with other people on the app?
Some of the best things in life are free
In the words of a great philosopher—OK fine, Jessie J—sometimes “it’s not about the money, money, money” because certain things in life don’t need a price tag. At Pickle we believe a little give and take goes a long way! We like to call the rewards Karma! So if you need a little help with something and don’t have the money to pay for it, set the price point within the app to free and someone out there will be willing to help out with your task. Pickle connects you to that person 🙂 At the core of our business we believe it’s these smaller things in life that create mini-magic moments.
Every user on Pickle has their user profile, which lets other else on the app know a little bit about you.
You can also see your job history (completed and posted jobs) from a user’s profile.
At Pickle we like to focus on the jobs almost everybody can do, because we strongly believe you do not need professional certifications to make money. Our skills tab allows you to voice what skills you bring to the table, which is important information for people who might be considering to choose you for a job!
The skills range covers everything from admin work, electrician jobs, handyman tasks, photography, painting, babysitting, hairdressing, and makeup to personal shopping and loads more.
The gallery on your profile allows you to upload images to give other users an insight into who you are, or is just an excuse to post some more selfies (who knows where you might meet bae!)
Put up pictures of your work, jobs you’ve done for other people on the app or even the massive Pickle meet up sesh. As long as they fit into the image guidelines you’re all good.
On your profile go to ‘Job Tracker’ and set up the kinds of jobs you would like to be notified about, the distance you’re willing to travel and your price range. If you don’t select any jobs, you will be notified about all kinds of jobs on your mobile as they arise. If you select specific types of jobs, you will only receive notifications about those.
Make sure the ‘Receive Job Match Alerts’ is on if you want to be notified as soon as a job that matches your criteria is posted on Pickle.
Save the new settings and that’s it: you’re ready to go!
The ‘Trending Jobs’ tab shows the jobs on the app that have the most activity. It gives you a chance to join conversation in the comments section, or look through different tasks that you might be interested in applying for.
