Welcome To Nomad Now: The Digital Hiring Platform Where Employers Can Access Skilled Professionals Directly

Online Hiring Platform


Nomad Now is a digital recruitment platform for the buying and selling of Professional Freelancer, Independent Contractor and Consulting Services and also for Permanent recruitment. We have set our aim at being the 'Airbnb' of Recruitment in SA.

Freelancers (etc.) and Candidates register and complete their Profiles - listing information such as Work Experience, Personal and Business Skills as well as their Professional Services and Pricing.

Clients then sign up and search for the flexi and permanent talent they require. Clients are also able to place “Job Ads.” Clients place ads for both jobs and flexi roles and set their “minimum search requirements” for the ads. The flexi / perm candidates who MATCH these search queries are then INVITED to apply to these jobs! Nomad is an end-to-end solution, meaning Clients search for and engage with Freelancers (etc.) and Candidates, transact, pay and rate talent ALL on the Nomad Now platform.

We charge a very small (and market-changing!) fee of 4% for flexi-talent and 5% for permanent placements to Clients. We charge a payment fee of 4% to Freelancers and other flexi-workers (on collection of their revenues from Clients).

We are a digital marketplace placing Clients (employers of talent) directly in touch with Talent. We are not a labour broker. We do not offer jobs or employ people ourselves.
