London-based social enterprise HireHand, which connects marginal workers with employment, launches Seedrs campaign.
London-based labour platform HireHand is using technology to enhance – instead of eliminate – human work. The intelligent staffing platform has announced that in the four years since its launch, it has helped over 2,000 Hired Hands take home over £3 million in pay, and has now launched a £1 million campaign on Seedrs.
HireHand helps fill front and back of house shifts on a regular or last-minute basis, from wait staff to cuisine chefs.
This extra income is needed, as 35% of the platform’s users are from disadvantaged backgrounds, over half could be categorised as ‘underemployed’; with many living in households where income is below the poverty threshold.
