Working for LockSub as a subcontractor is simple, flexible and straightforward.

All subcontractors are automatically set as premium members ensuring you see the very best available jobs in your area first.

You can start your application by sending the following details to steve@locksub.com – Photo ID, Website URL, Public liability insurance and a list of areas you wish to cover. Once we have the above information a member of our recruitment team will be in touch.

    How do I let the office know if I’m available?
    Simply use the in app feature which lets the admin know if you are available to take on jobs, swipe right if unavailable and left if available.

    Are jobs automatically assigned to me?
    If you’re available for work and close to a particular job then Admin staff will automatically assign jobs to you via the LockSub Platform.

    What happens if I accept a job and can’t attend?
    You will need to let us know right away via the in app chat feature – if this happens more than once your account may be suspended.

    How do customers pay?
    Once your job is completed, you select the works carried out via the app and charge customers via our mobile payment terminals.

    How many jobs can I expect on a daily basis?
    Usually two to five.

    When and where do I send my invoices for completed work?
    Please send invoices to accounts@locksub.com every Sunday/Monday.

    When do I get paid for my work?
    We request you send us an invoice each week with a breakdown of works carried out, all locksmiths are paid each and every Wednesday, please ensure your bank details and vat number if applicable are included.

    What if my customer wants to pay cash?
    Cash should be banked once a week into the LockSub bank account.

    Who decides what customers should be charged?
    Ultimately this is up to the locksmith as all locksmiths will have different labour rates depending on time, location and type of works to be carried out. However, we have set some recommended prices inside the app whilst also outlining maximum charges in our terms and conditions.

    Are locksmiths paid a percentage of each job?
    Yes, the percentage is based on your location and experience.

    What happens if I have a recall job?
    We suggest recalls are kept to a minimum as works should always be completed to a high standard and we expect locksmiths to always be fully stocked. However, if you need to revisit a particular job then we kindly ask that you do not accept any jobs until your recall is complete.
