TXT launches digital notice board


 Leading mobile and Internet services provider, TXT Europe, is set to launch the group’s flagship product Casual Work Market in the European market, a digital notice board.

Casual Work Market is a social commerce platform that facilitates the seamless listing, discovery and engagement of people looking to give or offering to do small jobs and services.

Chief executive officer, TXT Group, Nii Laryea, described Casual Work Market as a medium that acts as a digital notice-board for the listing of job offers and facilitates discovery of jobs within varying work types from putting up shelving, fixing a leak in the shower, to doing domestic work such as baby sitting, pet-walking, cleaning or cooking.

Laryea also said that the platform allows people to effortlessly search for job seekers based on their unique need and criterion.

“Users of the platform listing job offers and opportunities or seeking offers and opportunities will be able to rate and provide feedback for the benefit of other users so as to ensure both competitive pricing and allowing job finders/workers to build up a trusted and respected brand for themselves on the platform,” he said.

Payments, according to Laryea, are processed transparently with both parties protected under Casual Work Market’s guarantee which ensures that jobs are paid for after the job is completed satisfactorily.

“Casual Work Market provides a one stop solution for all those little jobs that you’ve been putting off or just don’t have the time to do yourself as it offers the widest variety of work types for every small job or service scenario,” he said.

Laryea said he is excited about the introduction of the service adding, “The mobile internet has empowered our generation to do things differently, creating waves of change and positive disruptions across all industries and it’s that same thinking that has been applied to the problem of unemployment or under-employment and matching causal or professional abilities to one time small job offers and identifiable opportunities.”

As said by Laryea, the socio-economic benefits of the platform cannot be overlooked, because it allows individuals to establish a secondary source of income by offering to work within their casual or professional abilities and convenience.

He pointed out that to better manage the scaling of resources and support required for a worldwide launch, TXT Europe in line with its Group’s vision and objectives will initially make the service available in The Netherlands and then in Germany, The United Kingdom, Ghana, South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria before an eventual world-wide roll out.
