So, who are redwigwam and what do we do, I hear you ask!
By: Kayleigh, redwigwam
Redwigwam was founded in 2015 and is the UKs largest platform for flexible staff, using AI technology to connect workers with jobs. We work with many blue-chip brands, including as Coca Cola, Kellogg’s, Argos, Sodexo, Land Rover and Tesco.
(What is a blue-chip company? A blue chip is a nationally recognized, well-established, and financially sound company. The term comes from blue poker chips, which have the highest value in the game).
We believe that work should be flexible to keep up with modern lifestyles. These days people are on the go 24/7, and our ethos supports the idea that people should work when it is convenient for them and not necessarily the typical 9 to 5 working day.
Part of our community
When you join redwigwam, you’re joining our community of flexible workers (our Wigwammers) who are at the heart of everything we do. Our main mission is to give workers and businesses alike, the opportunity to utilise flexible working.
As a Wigwammer, you are employed by us but have access to our platform, which matches you to jobs in your local area. You are then free to book onto whichever jobs you like. You become a temporary extension to a business's workforce exactly when they need it most but also means you can work flexibly around your other commitments, which means a better work life balance and a better quality of life overall.
You’ll find a real mix of work on or platform, across loads of different sectors, including:
- Field marketing & Mystery shopping
- Warehousing and logistics
- Cleaning and facilities management
With such a wide variety of jobs on offer and with the ability to work in multiple sectors if you choose, you could work in a warehouse through the week, a bar on a weekend and even do a bit of mystery shopping on your way home! Or you could do mystery shopping as your main job with a few breakfast shifts at a hotel or work as a cleaner when time allows.
It’s completely up to you and the possibilities are endless!
Some of our mystery shop jobs are completely remote so that allows for even greater flexibility and is especially popular with parents who are looking to earn extra money without the burden of childcare costs!
Employment rights for all
People are at the very heart of our being. With redwigwam, you enjoy all the benefits of being fully employed, but on a temporary basis. That means you’ll always be paid appropriately for the work you do – at least minimum wage, but often much more. We manage all aspects of National Insurance and PAYE – and you earn holiday pay every time you work, plus have access to our pension scheme.
There are loads of useful training courses available on our platform which are completely free of charge and a brilliant way to upskill ahead of a new role.
We know one of the frustrations around temp work is about pay. We believe you should be paid quickly for the work we do – and are the only company in the UK to offer daily pay. This means you’ll be paid the day after your timesheet has been approved (or weekly or monthly if you prefer). No waiting for weeks, or even months to get your hands on the money you’ve earnt!
You’re in safe hands
Our company has also won many awards
At the National Online Recruitment Awards 2020, redwigwam won in the Best Innovation category, and we were a finalist in the Best Small Recruitment Agency category. We’ve won 'Best Temp Recruitment Agency’ at the 2018 UK Enterprise Awards and the Feefo Trusted Service Platinum Award in 2020, as rated by real customers.
Our CEO Lorna has just also found out she is the regional winner of Barclays Entrepreneur Awards 2021 and has been shortlisted for the national final, to name just a few. We also have plenty of excellent reviews being posted online about our company, with the majority of our wigwammers rating us 5 stars!
Most importantly, while we are powered by some cutting-edge tech, redwigwam is driven by real people. We have a head office in Liverpool and a team of Community Managers who are always on hand to help whenever you need.
If you have heard about redwigwam but you were not sure about signing up, we hope reading this has helped you to overcome your doubts. If you are an existing wigwammer who usually only sticks to one job type, we hope this has inspired you to try out working in different sectors which will be beneficial in many ways as you will earn more money and pick up new skills.
We’re really looking forward to working with you for many years to come!
