In May 2019 the globally renowned Indeed group acquired Syft (now Indeed Flex) to help us elevate our mission to unlock a world where access to work and workers is frictionless.
This provided us with greater opportunities to grow and continue giving more workers unique access to exciting temporary jobs whilst ensuring our clients have world-class service at all times.
Our Co-Founder and CEO, Jack Beaman, was inspired to launch the venture by the temporary shifts he undertook during university.
He felt that the sector was outdated and inefficient; employers had no say in staffing decisions and were paid high, opaque fees, while workers found low wages and limited opportunities. After sharpening his tools at a tech startup and partnering with a Co-Founder, former trader and now Syft COO Novo Abakare, they were able to democratise access to work by giving job seekers. ownership, control and choice.
Today, we continue to make strides in the world of work and build technology that leverages data to make it the fastest way to get access to work. Providing a holistic solution for employers to find happy and fulfilled workers who they know they can count on.
