Types of jobs

Location Jobs

These jobs involve going to a specific location to carry out a set of tasks e.g. answering a set of questions regarding stock merchandising, taking a picture of a display unit and answering some questions, or conducting a mystery shop on behalf of a brand.

Anywhere Jobs

Unlike Location Jobs, these jobs do not require you to go anywhere, you can complete them wherever you are e.g. giving feedback on a brand’s customer service through their website while following the instructions on the app.

Treasure Hunt

Cash in on your daily experiences. These jobs require you to find and spot assets as and when you see them e.g. spotting and taking a picture of a certain advertisement on a bus or noticing there’s no wheelchair access in a certain venue.

“I use Shepper to take breaks from my work and academics, it’s nice and interesting to walk around and get paid for that.

Students are always lacking in money so it helps in that way, and it helps to socialise and talk to new people; being an international student it [Shepper] helps me go and explore new places and new restaurants.”
