We built Adia, a digital recruitment platform, to meet the growing demand for temporary work and to ease the pain of finding short-term staff.

We believe that the recruitment experience can be better. That technology can be leveraged to eliminate inefficiencies in the world of work. Our platform helps jobseekers find flexible work opportunities easily while giving employers access to great talent whenever they need.

Adia offers complete transparency to both sides of the market. Employers decide upfront how much to pay their staff and see the skills, experience and ratings for each person before making a hire. On the other hand, jobseekers find out exactly when and where each job is, what it entails and the wages on offer for every shift.

Launched in Switzerland back in October 2016, Adia is now available in select cities in the UK including London, Manchester, York and Leeds. We started with a simple app to match jobseekers with employers in their local area. Today, we’re changing the way people earn a living and how businesses cope with fluctuating demand.
