Finding My Way Around Green Sky


Although Green Sky is really simple, it’s a new idea, and all new ideas take a while to get used to.
To help you work out what you can do on Green Sky and where to do it, please click on the links below

You are in About Green Sky now – Come here for What to do & Where to do it, How Green Sky works and other important information.

Main Menu Bar

Search to Hire - Search for a Flexer here
This is your search engine.

I want to be hired - Register as a Flexer here
This is where you register and become a Flexer.

My Green Sky - Once registered this is your 'Home'

My Inbox

– Your messages and your message history
– To message another Flexer, create a message through their profile
– When you receive a message, we email your personal email address with a link that brings you into your Inbox
– The history of your messages is always there for you, so you can check back on conversations you have had in the past
– Your messages are date-ordered, so that the most current messages are always at the top
– There is a flag next to My Inbox which shows that you have unread mail. Please click on the message so that the flag drops, that way, you can see when there really is new mail
– On the top right of your message room, is a link which says ‘I was Hired!’. This takes you to My Success. We hope you wear this link out!

My Details

– These are the details we have recorded from your registration
– This information is for your records with Green Sky Admin, not for your profile. If you have made a keying error (or change of heart) on your date of birth or gender, changes you make here will pull through to your profile
– To make changes to your profile, go to Edit My Profile

My Payments

– This shows your profile status, the date of the month your monthly payments come out, and a history of your payments
– You pay for your profile monthly, so if you are part-way through a month, you will be billed for the full month

Refer a Friend

If there is someone you know who would benefit from being part of Green Sky, please email them from here

Purchased Views

– This is the history of all Flexers you have ‘Paid to View’
– See more about our ‘Pay to View’ options in About Green Sky (‘looking to hire someone’ links)

My Feedback

– This is where you request, post and receive feedback
– Once feedback has been received, you choose to display (or not) your feedback in My Feedback
– Only you know when the appropriate time to request feedback from your customer/employer, so you manage this process
– It’s in your interest to request and manage your feedback
– Your feedback is only displayed on your profile if you have either a Lime or a Jade profile, however, prospective customers and employers have the choice to ‘Pay to View’ your feedback
– We see your feedback as an important way of marketing yourself, and we believe in your right to keep your feedback section positive, so you choose the feedback you display
– So that it is fair for customers/employers, we display the ‘% of feedback’ you have chosen to display. If your percentage is 100%, you clearly have very happy customers. If it’s a low percentage, the feedback might be a mixed bag


Only Flexers use the next set of rooms – This is where the action is!

Edit my Profile

– This is where you create your profile and where you can edit your profile at any time
– There are ‘Tip’ boxes on display on this page to talk you through the process
– This is the raw data. If you want to see what the profile actually looks like to a prospective customer/employer, either click the appropriate View my Profile links at the top, or search for yourself and click on your own profile in Find a Flexer
– At the top of this page, you can see what your profile looks like as an Avocado Profile, a Lime Profile and a Jade Profile. You can make your decision about what level of profile suits you, by viewing these
– If you want to change your profile type, please go to My Green Sky, Change my Profile Status
– Please save your entries/changes by using the Save buttons at the top and bottom of the page
– There is an ‘Activate my Profile’ button at the top right of this page. If you are not available (sick, on holiday, on contract etc) you may want to leave this button un-ticked. If this is not ticked, your profile will not be visible. We will remind you if this button is not ticked each time you leave Edit My Profile and each time you re-enter Edit My Profile. It is your responsibility to manage this. Please always ‘Save’ once you have ‘Activated’ or ‘De-Activated’ your profile
– Un-ticking ‘Activate My Profile’, is not cancelling your registration. It is just taking your profile off-line

Change my Profile Status (Being built)

– This is where you can upgrade, downgrade or cancel your Profile at any time
You pay for your profile monthly, so if you are part-way through a month, you will be billed for the full month, so please pay attention to your anniversary date so if you wish to cancel or downgrade during the month, please ensure it is the most beneficial time of the month for you
