Task Squad introduces young people, eager to undertake paid work, to organisations that are looking to fulfil short-term staffing needs.
Task Squad is a new a micro-work platform from vInspired, connecting young people possessing proven volunteering experience, with paid ‘micro-work’ opportunities. These are small jobs, or short-term positions of two hours to a week duration, posted by SMEs, charities and start-ups needing short-term support. The platform aims to improve young people’s future career choices and enable them to become economically active, while providing start-ups, small businesses and charities with access to motivated and skilled young workers.
This innovation was one of the finalists in the European Social Innovation Competition 2014 run by the European Commission with support from Nesta.
