Instahire Just Got Better – Instant Job Offers and Effortless Scheduling

Since Instahire launched in May, we’ve seen a huge number of employers take advantage of the app’s ability to find staff for immediate start. If you wish to find someone on a whim  Instahire is the only app that allows you to hire staff starting the as soon as one hour’s time.

This instant hire concept works great in principle but we couldn’t ignore the growing demand from employers asking about hiring staff for jobs for up to a week ahead. This is when you know there’s a big day like Melbourne Cup coming. Now, if you need extra hands on deck, how do you find them?

That’s why we created the Instahire in Advance feature. Employers can still find staff at a moment’s notice, but if you’ve got a planned event coming up, then we’ve got you covered. Hire one or multiple staff for up to six days in advance for important jobs and busy times, keeping track of scheduled vacancies, and when the time comes you can pay with the easy-to-use, automated Instapay payment system that you already know and love.

Jobseekers can now plan their busy schedule more effectively and apply for upcoming jobs at the touch of a button. It’s the easiest way to find work!


  1. Tap on the Search tab (magnifying glass icon). From here you can set search parameters like type of staff, job address, hourly rate, date and time. Press Search button to create a vacancy.image-uploaded-from-ios
