We created Manup to solve a challenge faced on one hand by companies needing to hire technical staff on-demand, for short-term project work in the energy industry. On the other hand, thousands of independent contractors, consultants, and freelance workers struggle to connect seamlessly with projects. Manup operates globally bridging this gap, and with our technology, help companies reduce time spent on administrative tasks related to sourcing vetting, mobilizing and managing workers. Using our platform lets you transparently keep a closer eye on contractor compliance. Customers can save as much as 30% on their variable labor costs and hire workers up to 10X faster.

Client Side
Three quick steps to get started using the platform are:
  • Client registers a Manup account Login and create project – Enter project parameters / description (work-scope, location, qualifications etc)
  • Select preferred personnel – Pre-screened and qualified personnel matching project requirements (location, availability, skill requirements, valid certification, etc) indicate their interest in working on the project – Schedule and interview workers you are interested in using in-app video platform - Select the workers of your choice.
  • Contract and deploy personnel – Finalize contract with Manup and personnel is deployed to designated location
Personnel Side
  • Start by selecting your discipline from one of two broad categories (Upstream Oil & Gas or Renewables & Green Tech). Click here to register a Manup account as a personnel.
  • Update profile (including academic qualifications, trainings, job experiences, payment information, asking dayrates etc) Also upload your certificates, identification, medical fitness to work etc)
  • Set Availability and you are set to start receiving notifications of projects best matched to your qualifications, experience, location and availability

At a minimum, you should provide a description of the main aspects of the project; workscope, type of personnel (discipline / sub-discipline required), qualifications, skill level, language, end client facility, field, tentative start date, expected duration and any other information useful to know.

Manup excludes you from hiring personnel contracted from the platform on a permanent basis without expressly agreeing with us. You agree to pay Manup a one-time fee equal to 10% of the annual gross salary you that you offer to the personnel to Manup as a condition to hiring the personnel. This applies to any personnel that you have contracted on the Manup platform within the previous six months from the intended permanent hire date.

Once a Manup customer selects personnel it intends to hire for a project, a contract is signed electronically on the Manup Application between the customer and Manup.

We provide round the clock support to all users of the Manup platform. If you need technical support contact us at, for sales support, contact us at For general enquiries contact us at or complete the contact form on the home page.

There are thousands of workers currently on the Manup platform from 81 countries. Though our immediate focus is on the USA, UK, South Africa, Ghana and Nigeria, Manup plans to support clients across the globe. Please contact us if you have a project outside of the five countries listed above

Manup is committed to helping its customers meet their contingent project staffing and assume the administrative hassles clients would otherwise be saddled with. For this reason, Manup has created and maintains a unique platform that automates the vetting, matching, and management of skilled workers. Furthermore, our technology gives you real-time visibility on the personnel's location and availability thereby minimizing the time and effort it would otherwise take personnel and partners to connect and consummate a transaction. Manup relieves the client of the payroll burden as it undertakes the timely payment of project personnel and in turn issues one invoice to the client saving them transaction costs. Manup charges a nominal fee to cover its overheads for providing this service.

Please contact us immediately. You have the option to select replacement personnel with commensurate experience. We are committed to resolving any unfortunate but unlikely situation where the work provided by a personnel contracted on the Manup platform is unsatisfactory.

Projects can be canceled without consequence provided the worker(s) have not been mobilized. Should you need to cancel a project after personnel have been mobilized, you will be liable to pay any mobilization fees Manup incurred for deploying the personnel as well as the personnel day rate starting from their mobilization day till they return home.

Personnel day rate charges begin accruing from the day the personnel arrives at the client’s designated location and stays in effect till they return home at the client’s direction, at the end of their rotation or at the end of the project.
