Summary Problem Solution Industry Landscape
We want you to have a life, as well as a career.

Flexa is a job platform and online community that seamlessly introduces companies to those of us who want flexibility in our work. We partner with businesses of all sizes, who see flexible working as a way to give back to their employees.

Having launched in early 2020, we're scaling rapidly and are already working with the likes of Allianz, 11FS and Lingumi.
The job marketplace is broken. There is no platform for flex working candidates and no simple way for employers to find them. Endless hunting around job boards and fruitless coffees with recruiters have become the norm. That’s why we’ve created Flexa.
We're completely focused on clarity, simplicity and ease of use. We want to make it as easy as possible for candidates to find the right flex roles. Crucially, only flex opportunities are listed on the site, therefore candidates know exactly what they're applying for.
The industry is deeply fragmented, consisting of large job boards (LinkedIn, Indeed etc) and individual recruitment firms.

There is no bespoke platform for full-time flex workers (nb: not freelancers!), despite a huge growth in popularity of flex working amongst both candidates and employers.
