The Grafter service has two types of users:

  1. Clients - businesses or people who have short term workforce requirements
  2. Grafters - people who are available for work

The service is available online at www.grafternow.comĀ 

If you are using a mobile phone, Grafter is built as a 'web app' so works like a phone app within your browser. It works on any device which has a browser and internet connection.


To use the Grafter Platform as a client all you need is a valid payment card and a job that needs doing!

While payment is normally taken from payment cards, for established companies we may support payment by invoice. Contact us on to discuss.
