345,000 ‘Jobbers’ ready to work with South Africa’s new on-tap workforce

24/7, on-demand workforce is micro-jobbing solution to generate scalable employment opportunities

Johannesburg, 15 August 2023: Today the Nfinity group launched Jobb’n – South Africa’s national, on-demand, 24/7 workforce.


Founded by the same digitally-savvy team behind Webfluential and theSALT, Jobb’n is a platform that has been designed to solve two issues: Firstly, it provides businesses and brands with real-time, location-specific or virtual solutions to chunky tasks (such as market research) at a fraction of the market cost and with unheard-of accuracy, reach and speed. Secondly, it offers citizens from every corner of the country the opportunity to earn extra money — at the touch of a button, via their phones.

“Marketplace crowdsourcing is here and it has the opportunity to add cash to your wallet if you’re an individual, or to save and stretch your budget if you’re a company,” says Jobb’n Founder and CEO of the newest subsidiary within the Nfinity Influencer stable, Pieter Groenewald.

Providing immediate access to a diverse pool of talent and to complete a vast array of tasks, Jobb’n matches businesses from all industries with the right people for the right purpose and, alongside Nfinity’s other subsidiary theSALT, has tapped into its 345,000-strong resource community. The tasks ‘Jobbers’ complete are wide-ranging, from beta-testing new innovations to facilitating store hygiene tasks to testing the efficacy of an ad campaign. At the same time, the platform is also an individual’s answer to starting a side-hustle by leveraging and capitalising on their time and services.

The realities of the South African labour market in the last quarter have been sobering if not shocking for all. Along with job losses and high rates of unemployment, socio-economic factors are impacting industry — struggling with challenges such as a chronic shortage of talent — as well as citizens, many of whom find themselves without work and, more than ever, seeking innovative ways to make and save extra money.

Jobb’n opens up the talent access economy by making vetted, brand-aligned individuals and location-based resources available to businesses without having to permanently hire a single person.

How it works: The Hustle and Hire Advantage of Jobb’n

Working with some of the country’s top blue-chip companies to reach their marketing, sales and operational goals, Jobb’n offers key services across in-trade activities (mystery shopping, installing POS, price comparison and competitive analysis), smart surveys (online questions, social canvassing, ad testing and packaging testing) as well as smart sampling, sales and real-time reviews.

“One of South Africa’s major pet food suppliers recently used Jobb’n to verify the merchandising of their products in 200 third-party stores. The organisation didn’t have the workforce to achieve this, and Jobb’n provided immediate access to a vetted, credible pool of people and successfully obtained live data from every store, including those as far-flung as Kakamas, within 48 hours,” says Groenewald.

“Streamlined and efficient, Jobb’n manages the entire process from the start to finish of a project via its platform, for both clients and individuals. Through its strategic partnership with theSALT and its technical expertise and one-of-a-kind database, brands gain access to the most comprehensive database in Africa with the ability to target Jobbers at a granular level,” concludes Groenewald.
