ID verification

Brigad uses biometric technology to confirm the validity of identity documents.

Right of work and UTRs

We use official documentation or Government Gateway to verify talents UTRs. Where necessary, we also check share codes to confirm the right to work status of non-UK citizens.

Qualifications & diplomas

Diplomas are verified against the certifying body.


A minimum of one year of experience in a role is required. 
Talents are also tested on topics relating to their field and area of expertise (eg. safety and hygiene standards, DBS checks etc.).

Segmentation par domaine d’expertise

Puisqu’un même métier n’est pas exercé de la même manière suivant les établissements et le public, nous identifions les expertises par type d’établissement et par service.


A model based on freedom

The Brigad app does not place professionals on missions. Instead, talents are free to choose to accept mission as they please, which promotes a different relationship to work and results in stronger motivation.
Reliable and dedicated: Missions descriptions enable professionals to make informed decisions when willingly accepting missions.
Resourceful: Opting to be a freelancer isn’t accessible to everyone, as it involves a higher level of risk. Those who choose this are often the most motivated and competent.
Adaptable: Taking on multiple and varied missions enables professionals to grow a diverse and rich experience, which they can draw upon to benefit your business.
