What I need is a simple to operate site. The idea is that small shopkeepers will post their requirements for holiday cover on the site and interested people will be able to show their availability and book their interest in vacancies online.
So companies would post the dates they need, any key competency areas that they require and location.
Potential employees would give their details, general location, distance they are willing to travel, required daily rate, dates they are available and key competencies.
Income would come from shopkeepers registering at a flat fee of £5 by Paypal, google adsense, and a £1 fee levied against potential employees WHEN they get a successful assignment.
Just to clarify.
Core competencies required by both shopkeeper and employee will be checked off a static list making it easier to match/exclude employees from selections.
Also, employees need a 12 month rolling diary facility to indicate when they are or are not available and shopkeepers similarly so they can indicate a range of dates in advance when they want to think about going on holiday
