Collective is building a benefits solution fit for the gig economy.
The way we work is fundamentally changing with gig workers representing a significant and growing market in the UK and abroad. There are currently over 5 million gig workers in the UK, 33 million in the EU and 55 million in the USA. Whilst gig work comes with many advantages, it leaves many people underserved regarding their financial wellness compared to their employed peers. We’re on a mission to fix this.
