How will it help me?

First thing to note is that this is not a job board, this is not a soclal media site, this is not a community page. This is your platform, a skills matching platform built by tech, legal and recruitment experts, just for you.

You are in charge of the process, you keep your personal details anonymous until you decide to release them – what can be seen are your skills and experience. Umbiie is a skills first platform that aims to break through any bias or discrimination – if you can do the job, you will be seen.

Wherever you are in the world, you can be matched to global opportunities.

How does it work?

Umbiie is really simple to use.

  • Build your profile, enter in all your skills, education, experience, upload this straight from your CV (you’ll not need your CV again.)
  • You will then be put through a KYC check to make sure you are who you say you are, and your certifications and experience are verified and genuine.
  • Where you give permission, your past employers/clients will verify that you have indeed, worked for them/with them in the past – Umbiie is being built on the power of verification.
  • Your photo, name, contacts, work examples, and other personal information remains anonymous from skill seekers.
  • Once an Umbiie client matches you to their need, you will be notified via email.
  • If you decide to let them see your details, then you will give them permission to contact you. You remain anonymous until you want to be contacted, you are in control.
  • Unlike other platforms, you will not be bombarded with daily messages, you will not be asked to connect to yet another community, or newsletter, you will only be contacted once your skills, rate and experience match 100% to global opportunities.
What does it cost?
  • Umbiie is free to set up your profile
  • But once a company contacts you to share your profile with them, you will be prompted to pay the membership fee of US$1 per month.
What can I expect?

The first thing to note is that it’s not a “placement”; you stay anonymous until the client uses one credit to free up the details, then they contact you directly; if you release your details, they will contact you to discuss their needs.

You will only be contacted if you 100% match the needs of a skills-seeking company worldwide.

If no opportunity matches your skills and experience, you will not be contacted through Umbiie

You can expect a platform built for the legal profession by a mixed team of tech, legal and staffing professionals.
