The Work Crowd Launches in the UAE

Posted in Business, Freelancer, Industry news, Client, UAE,

We are delighted to announce the launch of The Work Crowd across the UAE. It is an exciting time for the freelance industry globally and particularly the UAE, which is now one of the fastest-growing freelance economies, replete with business opportunities, political and social diversity, and multi-cultural complexities.

There has been a recent shift in the demand for talent, with many businesses in the UAE challenged with accessing a flexible, contingent workforce with diverse skills. As a leading platform connecting businesses to the best freelancers globally, we are excited to offer our talented pool of marketing and communications experts to businesses within this region.

Alice Wightman, CEO of The Work Crowd said, “We are taking our award-winning technology to the UAE to build a local network of best-in-class freelance marketers, providing much needed support to businesses and the flourishing start-up ecosystem with local and global talent.” 

“The Work Crowd network is built up of over 6000 professional, vetted freelancers, working across the UK and Europe, so launching in the UAE as our home in the Middle East and southwest Asia is a natural extension of the business part of our vision to build the best community of freelance marketers globally”.

We will be building out a local network of freelancers with knowledge of the UAE and GCC region, but also enabling businesses to connect with talent globally.

Changes in the way people work, which have been accelerated by the pandemic, have meant that businesses are looking for more flexible talent solutions, McKinsey recently conducted a survey which found that 71% of CEOs were more likely to use freelancers post the pandemic. The Work Crowd enables businesses to access this professional freelance talent, centralising this decentralised workforce to power businesses in a modern economy. As an invite-only platform, freelancers provide references to join, ensuring the quality of the freelancers is extremely high.

The Work Crowd is renowned for the exceptional calibre of marketing freelancers within its network; working with businesses to build on-demand multi-functional marketing teams as well as smaller one off project support across the marketing mix, from marketing strategy to PR & communications, key messaging, SEO, content writing, digital strategy, and innovation and design.  Clients are fast-growth start-ups, scale-ups and SME’s; independent and network agencies as well as corporate in-house teams across all sectors. Clients include: Hanover, Grayling, WE Comms, Eventbrite, CogX, CCGroup, Fastly, MyHeritage, Harley Davidson, Napier, Aalbun, Systemiq, CliniMed, Logically, Marshall E-Learning, Treedom, GOEX and more.
