Syft International Challenge: Who are Syft?

26th October 2018

Cardiff Blues and Syft have joined forces to bring you the Syft International Challenge, as Wales' Capital Region host Uruguay at Cardiff Arms Park on Tuesday, November 6.

The Syft International Challenge will be a opportunity for supporters to have an early preview of what Warren Gatland's Wales can expect when they face Uruguay in the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Launched in late 2015, Syft is the UK’s market-leading flexible staffing platform. A break from the traditional staffing agency model, Syft offers employers and workers a better deal enabled by technological innovation. Initially operating in the hospitality industry, Syft has established a growing presence in the industrial and facilities management sectors. 

On the app, employers access a pool of over 15,000 high-quality flexible workers, Syfters. The Venture Capital-backed startup operates a thorough onboarding process, where prospective Syfters are fully vetted before they can work. Syft saves employers up to 55% on agency fees and frees up time; shifts can be posted in minutes and claimed in seconds. Each Syfter has a profile detailing skills, experience and professional feedback, allowing employers to make informed staffing decisions. 

Syfters are able to take on a range of different jobs, with no obligation to work a minimum or maximum number of shifts. Syfters earn a market-leading wage plus hundreds of earnable perks, including top brand discounts and free phone insurance. More perks are made available as more shifts are worked, a clear incentive for Syfters to perform well on the job and carry on using the platform. 

Founded in London, the Venture Capital-backed startup has since opened branches in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham and most recently Cardiff. In early May 2018, Syft won the prestigious Recruitment Technology Innovation of the Year award at the Recruiter Awards. Later that month, Syft reached 7th place in the Startups 100.

In early July, Syft was awarded the Hottest Platform Economy / Marketplace trophy in Europe at The Europas 2018.
