Redwigwam scoops contract to provide 10,000 flexible workers

As demand surges for flexible workers across the UK, Liverpool-headquartered Redwigwam has won a contract to provide 10,000 temporary staff.

Founded by Lorna Davidson (pictured), and specialising in providing fully managed, trained and flexible staff for a wide range of sectors, over the next six months Redwigwam will provide a range of roles that include warehousing, pick and pack, and logistics work UK-wide to meet the current e-commerce boom. 

The company, which did not disclose further details of the contract, expects the demand to be the biggest ever leading up to the Christmas peak at the end of the year.

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.

“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.”

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.
