It goes without saying that the pandemic has suddenly transformed millions into virtual workers. During the pre-pandemic period, becoming a remote employee was left to choice. But the co-founder of Remotejobs’s Husny Al Ayad says that starting a remote career after getting laid off isn’t something people do by choice any longer. “You almost begin to explore remote employment by necessity. You don’t have time to try or be down or depressed, because you lost your job. You still have bills to pay, maybe a family to look after,” he noted. That’s where a new startup- like Remotejobs.lk comes in.

 Unlike other similar platforms, Remotejobs.lk aims to offer full-time jobs to seekers which will also allow them to work remotely. True to its name, Remotejobs.lk connects job seekers from Sri Lanka with employers from across the world offering virtual paid work and, what is unique about Remotejobs.lk is that they only connect foreign companies with Sri Lankan job seekers. It is as simple as it sounds. “There’s always been this prediction that we would become a free-agent nation where workers offer their services independently, branding themselves to land gigs as full-time jobs wither away,” Adhil Nizam the co-founder of the new platform stated. “The pandemic simply accelerated this shift in ways that we never expected.”

 Many of Remotejobs.lk’s employers are based in the US, UK, Germany, France, China, and India. Although new to the market and yet to capitalise on the trends Remotejobs.lk already has its sight set on a full range of HR solutions from CV writing to interview tips and so on.
