Concept

JobGrouper allows companies to secure industry-leading talent globally at an affordable price. Using a group-buy method, companies can share the cost with others, hiring grant writers, courtesy drivers, start-up marketers and web designers at affordable prices. For those looking to hire, be they a start-up or group of neighbours seeking a housekeeper, hiring is cheaper and easier in groups. The system also works for those looking to get hired. Instead of picking up a variety of one-off jobs and not knowing where the next paycheck will come from, JobGrouper can turn part-time gigs into the equivalent of a full-time salaried position.

How they’re disrupting

Increasingly, the world’s work force is working flexibly and part-time. Companies want top talent, but not necessarily on a full-time basis, while talented people want regular employment and a good paycheck at the end of each month without necessarily losing their freedom.

Disruption potential

In 2017 there are 10,000 more people working part-time in Britain alone than compared to the previous year.

Investments and future
