Redwigwam has won its biggest ever contract as demand surges for flexible workers across the UK. The Liverpool-headquartered company specialises in providing fully managed, trained and flexible staff for a wide range of sectors including the retail, logistics, cleaning and hospitality industries. It has just won a contract which will provide employment for 10,000 temporary staff across the country, in a variety of roles, over the next six months.
Lorna Davidson, founder and CEO of Redwigwam, said: “This is a record contract win for us and shows how the world of work has changed over the past 15 months. “We are refreshing the opinion of how people are employed. We know from listening to our community of workers that the traditional employment model is increasingly outdated. Flexible work is the future. We have all sorts of workers on our platform from working mums to students and they’re all looking for work that flexes around their requirements. We’ve got 10,000 roles to fill over the course of the rest of the year with this contract win and they all recognise the importance of flexibility.”
The wide range of roles includes warehousing and logistics work to meet the ecommerce boom as well as gearing up for peak season. Redwigwam has its own bespoke AI-powered staffing platform to match its database of over 150,000 flexible workers with its 4,500 registered businesses. The intuitive on-demand and pay-as-you-go platform matches workers to jobs in their local area that require the skills they have, and workers can book whichever jobs they wish.
All its workers are vetted and validated for their right to work in the UK. Redwigwam pays workers quickly and is the only business in the UK to offer payment within 24 hours. Redwigwam works with some of the biggest blue-chip companies in the UK, including Coca-Cola, Argos, Sodexo, Land Rover, Tesco and Kellogg’s. The company provides its hirers with workers who are happy, proactive, dedicated and incentivised to perform to their potential. They always pay at least the minimum wage and cover tax, NI, holiday pay and pension.
