Cardiff Odd Jobs Website Connects Returning Students with Local Businesses

Cardiff, United Kingdom, September 23, 2009 --( a temporary jobs website is helping to connect Cardiff’s returning student population to small businesses. JobOasis allows local bars, restaurants and small businesses to connect with students in the Cardiff area.

A Cardiff based jobs website is helping to connect local business with the student population in an innovative new way. The free website allows students to quote how much they are willing to be paid for temporary roles within an organisation whilst receiving feedback after they have completed their role.

The website was set up by Swansea University Graduate Nick Braithwaite who said;

“The website was made to be different from other jobs websites; it has been built so that users can develop a rapport with one another before they choose who to work for or employ, meaning that businesses can avoid employing unreliable workers. The website will allow businesses to tap into the skill set of Cardiff’s large student base, the whole service has been made free to make it accessible to everyone in these harsh economic times.”

He added “When I was at university there were so many friends undertaking temporary work I though that there was a niche for a website that developed a community around temporary or one off jobs.” has only been launched for 3 months but has already had a high sign up rate from people looking for jobs in Cardiff.
