We use some clever tech to offer jobs to all Heroes in the area, and we factor in who has waited the longest.
We send you notifications by text and by email when a job is available in your area. Once you’ve picked the job, we send you the customer’s details so you can contact them to arrange it.
We’ve got a nifty app, Toolbox, where you can see which jobs you’ve completed and what you have booked in. You’ll be sent a link to download it when you join us.
We make sure Heroes are up to tip top standard, and as such have some requirements to become a Hero. Because of these, we do have to decline applications from time to time, but we should always be in touch to explain why.
