Nationaltradesmen.co.uk is a new website and app-based service for the construction industry. It provides a platform for construction operatives to find work and for companies to find tradesmen with specific skills and safety qualifications.
Nationaltradesmen.co.uk has been built by tradesmen, for tradesmen. It has been engineered as a tool for construction workers, employers for building sites and larger construction projects, which means the system works as a middle man between employers and employees.
As a Carpenter, I often struggled to find construction work in my local area, so I thought I would try to solve the problem by creating a website and app where tradesmen and companies can communicate.
I understand that if you are a tradesman, you not only need to specify your trade, but the skills associated with that trade because not every carpenter does roofing and not every plumber is gas registered. That’s why I have put together a complete skills section for every construction job, including which qualifications the tradesman holds and what CSCS card they have.
Workers can use Nationaltradesmen.co.uk to build a profile of skills and qualifications that can be updated as the operative progresses through their career. Employers who are registered can search for tradesmen who are registered with us for free and contact them for free.
The website also offers free job postings to registered users for their first three jobs and thereafter, it is only £5 per job.
I have built apps to accompany the website. These are available to download from Apple’s app store, Google Play, Amazon Apps and the Windows store. Through the apps, workers can search and apply for jobs in their local area and employers can match workers with specialist skills and trades.
Nationaltradesmen.co.uk also has incorporated forums and blogs, to which registered users can post about tools, work or construction courses.
The website also has trade specific areas within the forum for all the different trades, with instant messaging, members’ areas and a suppliers’ directory for anyone involved in construction to upload their logo and link to their own website.
The website, mobile site and apps are being launched on 02/04/2016. To register your interest, please visit our ‘coming soon’ page here at Nationaltradesmen.co.uk.
