Flexible employment scale-up celebrates 100,000th worker
Liverpool tech company Redwigwam, which matches employers with temporary workers is celebrating the 100,000th recruited worker on its platform.
Connecting to its 2,500 registered employers, the firm’s online platform finds short-term, flexible workers for part-time or ad-hoc roles.
Its 100,000th worker, 28-year-old Liam Scott, is a delivery driver from Nottingham who tops up his day job with flexible work.
He said: "I've been a wigwammer for a couple of months and it's a great way to pick and choose the jobs to suit you.
Redwigwam was founded by entrepreneur Lorna Davidson, who built and sold previous business Tactical Solutions for £29 million in 2011.
Davidson appeared on BusinessCloud's Demystifying Tech podcast to discuss the firm's technology.
Redwigwam, established in 2016, uses algorithms to connect workers with employers' short-term or ad-hoc opportunities.
The platform allows employers to post a job and be matched with workers who have the correct skills and availability.
"The current recruitment model of search, post a CV and wait to hear back is now outdated,” said Davidson.
"At redwigwam we see ourselves as the Tinder of recruitment. We tap into the huge potential workforce looking to get access to temporary jobs and our clever software sends them jobs on our system that suit them.
