WHAT IS GROUNDWORKS?
Groundworks is a platform where businesses assign projects to student freelancers to complete remotely. We match project requirements with the best suited profile from our network of university students. This provides businesses with flexible staffing solutions and the opportunity to build meaningful connections with potential future employees.
Groundworks freelancers can be used for one-off projects with no commitment. Alternatively, you can use the platform to improve your graduate recruitment process by working with students on a regular basis to reduce the ambiguity of the traditional graduate recruitment process. Our student freelancers work on software development, creative assignments, administrative tasks and everything in between.
Find someone you like working with. Request them again. Recruit an experienced and tested graduate that understands your business, your culture, and your expectations.

HOW IT WORKS
SUBMIT A PROJECT
Once you've signed up you'll be able to complete a project request form. It takes 5 minutes, simply provide a detailed explanation of the project, a price and a deadline.
WE'LL ASSIGN THE PROJECT
Groundworks will match your project with the most suitable student freelancer within our network.
RECEIVE THE PROJECT
The student will complete the project and return it to you. We recommend that you stay in contact with the student via email during this time.
Groundworks can be used purely as a freelance platform with no obligation to hire graduates. However, if you have been impressed by a student’s skills, Groundworks provides you with a basis on which to fast-track them through the recruitment process.
Free to join and no monthly cost
Groundworks is free to use but all students must be paid for their work on projects. When you submit a brief, you set your budget for that piece of work.
Groundworks takes a fee of 10% of the value of each project.
