A Letchworth GC based business has become the first organisation to sign up to the new online initiative to get people into work, all at the click of a button.
Bluebird Care, which provides personal care and support to people living in their own homes, has signed up to A Day’s Labour – a new app developed by 26-year-old entrepreneur TJ Morgan.
The free app will be set up so that employers and potential employees can share information, with the overall aim of reducing unemployment, and getting people into the workplace.
TJ, who lives in Stevenage, said: “The idea of the app is to get people into the workplace on short-term placements, like a day or two, and then be rated by their potential employer – a try before you buy.
“You start by uploading your profile with five skill tags. Employers use the app and put in their required skill tags, and then the app will match you up instantly.

“A lot of small businesses are interested in using it, as well as big companies.”
Last week, Bluebird Care became the first local employer to sign up to the idea, and it is looking forward to providing job opportunities to those that apply. All employers can join for free – for the first three months.

Dr Sarbjit Singh, managing director, said: “We specialise in working with customers who suffer from dementia, physical and learning disabilities, and we work alongside their families, Social Services, GPs and primary care trusts, to ensure each person receives the care they need.
“We offer a unique service of tailored care visits which range from anything from short-care visits to full live-in support. As well as personal care we also help with meal preparation, welfare checks, shopping, social trips, visits to the hospital, and we also provide extra support for post-discharge customers.”
The new app will be officially launched in May.
