Finding the right staff and contractors for a job can be hit or miss. Gigged.AI is looking to take the guesswork out of recruitment with a very 21st century approach – the use of artificial intelligence (AI).

Using this technology, the Scotland-based startup is able to remove two of the major pain points of hiring: time and human error. The company’s AI-driven marketplace means that it’s able to match companies with the most suitable candidates in just ten seconds, automating one of the most time-consuming tasks for managers.

The incentive is clear for business users. Because the algorithm knows exactly what your company needs, the guesswork and gut feeling of the hiring process is eliminated, meaning the person hired really is the best person for the job.

Efficiency is another key benefit of the Gigged.AI platform. Using Gigged, the onboarding process for new hires (including video and web chat, payment and identity verification) takes just 60 minutes.

The innovation doesn’t end there. Looking to create what it calls ‘CV 3.0’, Gigged.AI has also utilised the power of NFTs to design its ‘GigChain’ platform, a way for freelancers to easily and securely verify their identity, work history, certifications and more.

Despite only launching in 2021, the company has already received plenty of attention, being featured in Forbes just two days after launch. It also boasts over 200 clients, including the BBC and Leidos, and has received over 5,000 freelancer sign ups.

While the employment landscape has changed drastically in the last few years as a result of the Great Resignation, the hiring process has struggled to keep pace. With Gigged.AI, that could be about to change.
