FURTHER TALENT FAQs.

New to Genie and have questions? Hopefully we have answers below.
If not and you are already using Genie then request a call back from your persistent menu.

 

DO I HAVE TO SET MY AVAILABILITY?

No. We believe availability is a fluid thing. If something is interesting enough talented people explore making themselves available. So it’s not necessary unless you want to switch off completely from hearing about any opportunities Genie thinks you might be right for. Genie may approach you with the occasional relevant and interesting Side Hustle project anyway.

WHAT IF I WANT TO STAY HIDDEN?

Privacy is key. Talent stay hidden until they say they're interested in a brief. So if approached and you're not interested just click the not interested button and you'll stay hidden.

GENIE HAS APPROACHED ME BUT THE ROLE DOESN’T LOOK RIGHT?

Genie works out who is right rather than who is asked for. Often the same thing, sometimes not. This may from time to time 'WildCard' you into a brief you'll be great for. Rest assured such a move is based on extensive knowledge garnered from market trends, the Genie team's experience and more. Genie won't waste your time... If however it's a NO to a brief, Genie will ask you why. Do feedback when prompted to help Genie learn for the next time.

WHY CAN'T I SEE A BUDGET?

Genie looks at talent from a capability and expertise point of view. Extensive testing has shown that asking companies for restrictive budget figures hamper a search. Genie therefore presents the company with a fair 'price' to access talent. Pricing is in line with industry norms so there are no nasty shocks. If you need to reconfirm the figure you are priced at request a call back in the persistent menu.

WHAT'S A SIDE HUSTLE?

Why can't freelancers crack more than one problem at a time if they have the capacity to do so? A Side Hustle allows for a company to unlock the headspace of talent 'on the side' from their day work. Not every project is right, but if it is, talent who are otherwise busy and unobtainable may just be open to accepting.

HOW DO I GET PAID?

Genie believes in complete transparency so currently requests clients pay you directly for your services.
