Here comes innovation


Red Wig Wam (part of The Mothership Group)

We believe in helping getting the UK back to work. We want to use part-time work as a bridge to full time employment.

We provide an online solution that helps people looking for short term work find businesses looking to fill temporary jobs.

What prompted you to develop it?

Having recruited many staff in the past for these types of jobs, we saw a real gap in the market outside the traditional recruitment agencies.

Is it in production or use?

Red WigWam went live in April 2014 and has helped thousands of people and businesses connect.

Who inspires you?

I'm inspired by people like Richard Branson and James Dyson - people who have changed the way that we do ordinary, everyday things but have always tried to keep the customer's need at the heart of everything they do.

What do you hope to achieve in developing this innovation?

Our aim is to help people who don't have full-time jobs at the moment to get experience and use part-time work as a stepping stone, this includes students, working mums, retired people and those on benefits.
