Everyone has the opportunity to prove their professional ability. We’ll guide you through the process below…
What will I be doing?
Your title will be Partner Manager. You will be adding listings to this directory, on behalf of our partners, and communicating with up to 10 partners in your portfolio. Each partner expects 30 listings per month to be added, hence you will need to add a total of 300 listings to the directory. The average listing takes about 30 minutes to complete, which means about 5 hours of work per day, in a calendar month. You can work at your own pace…
How difficult can it be?
A listing consists of writing one paragraph, uploading 7 images, adding location and contact details. There is no selling involved, as the listing URLs are supplied by the 10 partners and/or your team leader. Once the listings are uploaded, they need to be tweaked for accuracy and SEO ranking. This is all point and click easy, and we will show you how. There may be some interaction with your 10 partner clients, but not that much. You are left to your own devices, working independently. Every listing then goes through quality control. Successful listings are added to your totals. Diligence and accuracy are duly rewarded with several monetary bonuses. See details below…
Can I work from home?
Yes, you can work from the comfort of your home, or co-working space, anywhere in the world. No commute needed. We are planning office space in Cape Town, South Africa, Shoreham, United Kingdom and Venice, Italy. Eligible partner managers will be invited to relocate to these regional offices, as and when circumstances allow. Depending on how this initiative evolves, there may be interesting travel opportunities in the future. Stay tuned!
What work tools do I need?
A broadband Internet connection is essential. Working from a desktop, chromebook or laptop is best. This is NOT something you can do from a smartphone. At least one social account is needed to login. We suggest you set up a separate Gmail address for work use. While any web browser will work, we recommend using Chrome, as we use several extensions to make the workflow easier. We supply various task and project management tools at no cost.
Which languages are required?
A good command of English is essential, as the main paragraph in the listing must read well. While English is the primary language, we are also expanding the initiative into the French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish marketplaces. More languages to be added later, as we grow. Hence, any additional language skills, are welcome.
Do I need to send in my CV and Resume?
No. It does not matter what you currently do for a living, nor what you did before, A resume can be fabricated. We are more interested in your integrity and work ethic, going forward. By reading this page thoroughly and following the instructions to apply, will tell us a lot about you. Further to that, the quality of your listings will determine if you are suited to be a partner manager, or not. It’s all up to you, at the end of the day. Still reading? Proceed…

Why this non-standard application process for a freelance position?
Think about it…. company offers a job… hundreds, maybe thousands apply and send in their CV. Managers spend days, weeks sifting through candidates. Long lists lead to short lists. Then comes the interview, maybe. Back and forth with paperwork, job offer and more paperwork. The successful candidate starts a trial period and training. Assuming both parties click, they all live happily ever after. Just like in a fairy tale. But real life is not a fairy tale.
We take a different approach. Life is short. We give EVERYONE the opportunity to PROVE themselves. We do not care where you are from, nor what you have done before. Just give it a go and see if you make the grade. No hard feelings if you don’t. Either way, you’ll probably gain something out of the experience. If you are reading this line, it means you have taken the time to absorb this page. Therefore, it’s very likely you are our kind of team player.
How do I know if and when my application is successful?
You will know soon enough. We start by taking note of your first introductory listing. Tell us who you are and why you want to be part of this initiative. Then get on with it and submit at least 20 listings. The quality thereof will not go unnoticed, and we will be in touch. We’ll guide you further from there. Don’t worry. you won’t be left in limbo.
What happens if I don’t make the grade initially?
You will be the first to know, as your listings will be rejected, if not up to standard. Keep trying though, until such time as you have successfully submitted at least 20 listings. We will extend your complimentary membership for another SIX months. Determination will see you through. If not, we may simply drift apart amicably. C’est la vie!
What other options do I have here?
Not making the grade as Partner Manager, is not the end of the world. You may be more suited to proactively promoting existing listings. In fact, there is good money to be made, by spreading the word about this initiative. No need to actually create listings, but rather just share the listings of others.
