Frequently Asked Questions

How does Stoobi actually work?

Stoobi is an online noticeboard for seasonal work. It is a platform to allow employers to find workers. Employers post adverts which, once reviewed by Stoobi, goes live and will be pinned on the 'View Jobs' map and sent to all relevant workers. Workers are then able to apply for any job they like and their details will appear on the employer's dashboard including CV's, references, a bit about them and work experience. There may be numerous workers applying who can be seen in list format beside each job posted in 'Jobs I've Posted' in the 'ACCOUNT'.

Stoobi does not vet workers but gives them an opportunity to provide and upload references, CV's DBS checks etc to help them secure work.

How much does it cost to post an ad?

As it's brand new, Stoobi is free to post jobs until the 31st January 2019 to get us started. You will be able to see how many workers have viewed your job and see a list of who has applied. If Stoobi works for you, ad credits are available to purchase from £15 and each ad lasts for four weeks. You can buy ad credits in bulk as follows:

1 ad credit = £30

5 ad credits = £125 (£25 each)

10 ad credits = £200 (£20 each)

20 ad credits = £300 (£15 each)

How much does it cost to become a worker?

There are no costs involved with becoming a worker. You can sign up and use Stoobi as much or as little as you like for free.

What data do you hold on me?

At Stoobi, we take the security of the information you give us very seriously. It is solely for the use of advising you of what's going on in the Stoobi community. For Employers, your name, postcode and any contact details you've given us will be for admin purposes only. As a worker, your name, contact details and the blurb about you and your work experience will be viewable to anyone you apply to. Your name, address and contact details will be held for a period of 2 years after the last use of Stoobi unless you tell us otherwise. If you would like to see the information we hold about you, please contact us and we will be happy to provide it. We will NEVER sell or provide third parties with your information. Similarly, we never buy your information from third parties.

I'm under 18. Can I become a worker?

You need to be over the age of 16 to use Stoobi to find work. If you are younger than this, to find work, the account needs to be in the name of a parent or guardian.

What happens if I damage something on my job?

Stoobi provides a platform where customers can find workers. Stoobi does not employ workers and workers do not work on behalf of Stoobi. Any disputes are therefore between the customer and worker and Stoobi will not get involved with such disputes. However if there is any criminal activity Stoobi will not withhold information should they be asked for it by any law enforcement officer.

Do you vet each worker?

Stoobi is purely a platform noticeboard. It allows those people who would like to find seasonal work to do so. Workers are not employed by Stoobi and therefore are not personally vetted by us. However, workers can upload CV's, References, DBS Checks etc which employers can check before hiring them.

Do you vet each advert?

Yes we do! Stoobi needs to ensure each advert adheres to our terms and conditions before it goes live on our website. Should your advert not be approved, you will be contacted to say why not.

When will my advert go live?

Adverts are usually live within minutes of posting them. However, if you decide to post an ad during the middle of the night UK time, it will probably go live a few hours later!

Can I use my worker outside of Stoobi?

Of course! Stoobi absolutely promotes the use of workers outside of their platform should you build a good relationship with them.

I can't find my category.

If you can't find a category that suits you, contact us using the form on Stoobi.com and we can add the category you need.

No one replied to my ad / When are you coming to my area?

We think Stoobi is great and it's a new platform. If there is enough demand in your area we will actively promote it where you are.

I have a complaint about Stoobi.com.

Stoobi was created with the sole intention of helping those employers who need to find a worker quickly and easily. Stoobi is a new website and we can imagine we will not get everything right from the start. We would really appreciate your feedback either by email at tess@stoobi.com or phone Tessa Rowland on 01983 550495 should you need any further information or have any complaints about the Stoobi concept itself. Unfortunately as Stoobi does not vet the workers you find, we cannot get involved with Employer/Worker disputes.
