Finding A Job Through The Covid-19 Crisis.

finding work through the covid crisis

Our mission is to bring flexible working opportunities to all. We pride ourselves on the number of roles we add to our jobs board regularly. These are unprecedented times and we are in this together. Many people are losing their jobs. Freelancers are having work cancelled. People are worried about what the next few months will bring. But, there are companies who are hiring. There are jobs out there for you to apply to. There are companies that desperately need temporary staff and many of the people who are looking for work take these opportunities.

Perhaps you have been told to go home. You still have a job but can’t work from home. Then why not volunteer for the NHS and lend a helping hand. Even people in vulnerable categories can help – please see link below.

Please remember that as this situation is rapidly evolving, some of the following news, guidance and roles may have changed. For advice on self isolation, social distancing and the latest nhs and government advice and restrictions please check official sources:
