Project Description

The website has five linked aspects to it:

1: Create a private profile area where individuals can create their own profile in the same way as you do on Facebook but the focus is to list all their skills/abilities/experiences down in order to facilitate finding or offering work. This is like a CV area.

2: An area where once registered users can list any type of work they have to offer which is listed and messaged out to the individuals that meet the skills created in their profile as in area 1. The work offered is published on the site under “new work offered” but details or contact info is only available to registered users. Similar to “[url removed, login to view]”. The idea is after each work an individual offers/accepts there needs to be a facility like Ebay to leave feedback but only total number of feedback and positive score is displayed.

3: There is an area for trades people, local and national business to create a mini-site with facility for drop-fields etc. Basic templates are available to use or a blank canvas where users can upload image files to create their own advertisements. This is a charged area at £99 per advert for a year.

The idea with the advertisements is that when the adverts are created the end users select keywords to associate with their advert which get displayed when a matching or similar search is done for a key-skill etc.

4: An area where individuals can search for shops/businesses, services, tradesmen or available people in a given geographical area or based on postcode. E.g. when someone puts in WF13 4HS for a plumber, all businesses, tradesmen and individuals with a skill of plumbing in their profile is listed on a map which the searcher can view some basic information about the profile or if logged into the site gets a full view of their skills. Similar to

5: The site must provide a facility to send messages between registered users and companies as well as be able to create a network of users etc large element of social networking facility. The messages must be sent to registered e-mail addresses as well as to the end-users registered account in There needs to be a large element of social networking into as well as linking registered users postcode to a rough point on googlemaps to show their locality and also through the site show whether they are on/offline?

The account information must be kept secure and encrypted.

Also need a separate quote for hosting.
