The Now Work has been founded by Laura Hunter and Hannah Phang, two people who thought there must be a better approach to work in sustainability. We’ve experienced the challenges of finding freelancers, and of securing freelance work firsthand.
Relying on personal networks keeps opportunities locked within a small group. It’s not inclusive, it limits divergent thinking and it reduces innovation potential. Scouring the internet and LinkedIn can waste precious time that could be better spent delivering positive change. We knew there was a better way. So we decided to build it.
The Now Work will open up access to opportunities to change the world and reduce the friction associated with finding freelance talent for vital sustainability projects.
We’re in beta mode right now. But we’re building something new and exciting that - we hope - will change the way the sustainable development sector approaches work. Join us for the journey to change the world, and change the world of work.
