Stevenage, 12 May 2011. Today, p2people launched p2people.co.uk, an innovative free jobs service for businesses looking to hire freelancers or outsource jobs online.
With the UK’s slow emergence from recession and the continuing low level of business confidence, businesses are increasingly turning to freelancing and outsourcing to fill job vacancies and complete new and outstanding projects. At the same time, an increasing number of professionals are turning to freelancing as an alternative to full-time employment. This has prompted p2people to launch p2people.co.uk, an innovative jobs service that connects people with jobs to people with services thus making it easy for individuals, freelancers and businesses to outsource jobs or freelance services.
Peter Louis, founder of p2people.co.uk, said, “An added benefit of using p2people is that it allows cost conscious businesses and recruiters to obtain highly skilled freelancers and business partners at a much lower cost than can be achieved through traditional sources, such as job boards, and other sites.
“This provides a real fillip to businesses, particularly micros and SMEs that were squeezed by the recession, as it allows them to hire freelancers and outsource jobs or projects while still keeping control of their costs, which is essential if they are to remain competitive in this cost-conscious post-recession business environment.
“And to help businesses and freelancers further, together with the always free Lite membership, businesses and freelancers can join p2people.co.uk as Individual members and get the first 3 months free.”
Joining p2people.co.uk is easy. You can either join through the free Lite plan or sign up for an Individual or Small Biz plan and pay a small membership fee. Once signed up, members can advertise their jobs or services for free and with the knowledge that p2people.co.uk securely stores and processes their data.
p2people.co.uk is the innovative free to join micro outsourcing service that makes it easy for people, freelancers and businesses to outsource their jobs and freelance their services. A full range of quality freelance jobs and outsourced projects are available across diverse areas, such as mobile apps, languages & translation, Web development, SEO, copy writing, bookkeeping, graphic design & market research.
Through p2people.co.uk, individuals and businesses tap into a network of talented individuals, professional freelancers and businesses enabling them to access the benefits of local, national or global sourcing in a safe and cost-effective way.
