Openforce can now help contractors find CSCS trained employees easily through its online web app which can be downloaded from Google Play store.

With latest figures showing there are 2.4 million jobs in the UK construction industry and more than one-third of people who work in the industry are self-employed, Openforce seeks to bridge the gap between employers and employees and take the stress out of hiring for new projects. Openforce was set up and founded by Amol Kyshatriya who conceived the idea in 2015.

"The idea of self-build software took shape and evolved into an online marketplace for construction companies to hire workers. By 2016 my design business had started to do well. So I decided to invest some money to build a prototype. Flash forward four years of development which had multiple failures and many painful moments when I wanted to quit; today we have a 'working product' that outlines our vision for the business," said Kyshatriya. 

"Our ambition is to grow Openforce from a go-to marketplace for construction workforce into a self-sustaining eco-system for the industry that enables upskilling of our workforce, facilitates better job management through smarter online tools and attracts youth to building industry."
