Want to watch all of the World Cup games, but can’t get the time off work? Well we’ve just launched the perfect service for you!
We’re giving members of the public the chance to hire freelance professionals to take over their job, whilst they watch this year’s World Cup matches. We’re launching it across the UK, and we expect professionals will be charging from around £15 an hour.
You can book your World Cup Worker here.
The service, which will be available nationwide, lets people watch matches without having to use up their precious holiday days. Workers will be available across a number of sectors, including data input and analysis, where work can be outsourced remotely.
Our ‘World Cup Worker’ service will be available from Thursday 14th June, when Russia take on Saudi Arabia in the first round of the tournament.
If you’d like to book a World Cup Worker, you’ll have to answer a few questions, such as; how many matches you want covered, what profession you work in, if the job can be done remotely, and which games you’d like to watch during the Tournament.
Pro World Cup Workers can expect to earn around £15p/h, however as with all Bark.com professionals, they can set their own rates.
Our service is primarily aimed at remote and freelance working, however it is open to all sectors and job roles.
Once a customer has selected a service provider to fulfil their duties at work, World Cup Workers will be expected to set up a physical or virtual meeting with them, to establish exactly what the work will entail and run through any additional points not mentioned in the original hiring request.
Kai Feller, co-founder of Bark.com, said,
“The World Cup is one of the biggest sporting events in the world and every four years millions of people in the UK sit down to watch it. However, for some people out there finding the time to watch the games can be almost impossible, especially when they kick off during work hours.
“On the other hand you have people who couldn’t care less about football and the World Cup. So, we thought why not combine the two groups and create a service that lets people watch matches, whilst someone else earns money doing their job.
“I think it’s going to be interesting to see what professions and trades people outsource for the tournament.”
