Technology exists to make our lives easier.

And here at Pickr, we figure if you can harness that power to magic up a chicken chow mein, tap for a taxi, or swipe your way to your next romantic partner, why shouldn’t you use it to find a great job or hire the ideal staff?

We exist to help businesses in the industrial sectors build and manage a modern, agile workforce. What does that look like? It’s people and businesses coming together to achieve exceptional things. It’s working when you want. It’s staffing projects with ease. It’s earning more and fulfilling your potential. It’s completing contracts on time. It’s making work ‘work’ for you.

We’ve built the UK’s largest talent cloud of skilled industrial workers and it's still growing. Why? Because we’re challenging the status quo. Businesses and workers have suffered at the hands of traditional recruitment agencies for long enough. We know, because we’ve experienced those challenges first hand.

The people we help work tirelessly in all conditions to keep our homes, businesses and the economy moving. They deserve better. So we built Pickr as a tool to connect the unsung heroes of the industrial sector to the businesses who are integral to building and maintaining our infrastructure.

Join the Pickr revolution today!

Kane Halsey

Founder & CEO

After years of working in the industrial sector, Kane was all too familiar with the struggles of getting the quantity and quality of staff he needed to secure a contract success. The lack of a dependable workforce solution drove him to create his own. And thus, Pickr was born!

Founding the business in 2017, the platform immediately got traction and it was clear he had something special. Uniquely placed to understand the needs of the businesses Pickr serves, Kane is all about empowering companies to build and manage their own on-demand workforce – saving them time, money and the disappointment of being overcharged and underserved.
