Jitjatjo, the casual workforce management and staffing marketplace platform, has launched its industry-disrupting technology for use by the Australian hospitality industry in its first expansion outside the US.  

By connecting workers with the jobs and shifts they want, Jitjatjo is maximising productivity and empowering lifestyle choices for casual workers.  

“While our platform is now popular across numerous industries requiring casual or contract staff in the US, the initial focus for our entry into Australia will be to help the many hospitality operators battling to fill rosters with suitable workers,” said Jitjatjo CEO & Co-Founder Tim Chatfield.  

“With the recovery of Sydney’s hospitality industry set to gather pace when Covid restrictions are lifted in March, Jitjatjo can help businesses overcome staffing hurdles by providing pools of pre-screened talent, a streamlined and efficient hiring process, and simplified workforce management tools,” said Mr Chatfield.

“Not only do we fill positions fast but we also match businesses with the right candidates, allowing them to save precious time that could otherwise be spent on scheduling and interviewing.”  

Jitjatjo Australia Country Manager Gavin McDonough added: “Jitjatjo is now accepting applications from casual workers seeking flexible hours and personalised employment across Sydney, and in Melbourne and Brisbane later in 2022.”  

Jitjatjo was established in New York by the Australian expat Tim Chatfield in 2015 and is now revolutionising work models in the hospitality, healthcare, facilities and retail sectors. The platform uses AI and Empathetic Intelligence to connect people with work opportunities through on-demand staffing work. For a business looking to fill a role, it’s as simple as inputting the job details, at which point the platform’s algorithms matches the best available worker with require skills and certifications.
