Skill Rail is an online platform based in London for university students and graduates seeking internships and freelance projects hosted by companies that can ultimately hire them based on their performance. In turn, we help companies achieve affordable work and improve their hiring decisions based on real data about candidates. Our student freelancers are pre-vetted and their work is screened before working with a client. The platform benefits students by providing work experience, additional income, and help them stand out to employers.

Whether a company needs one writer or an entire team of programmers, we help them find the right candidates by assessing these work samples before hiring talent. Say goodbye to the usual hiring process.
