A Whole New World Of Work Opportunities At Your Fingertips
Launched here in Singapore, Gigworks provides a world of unlimited possibilities between the seller and buyer of quality professional services as a mobile application that seeks to give users flexible access to buy and sell quality services.

The mobile platform was created to help innovate how the world works as well as pioneer the future of work. Gigworks allows for more opportunities to be presented for all groups of people with the objective of improving their lives by boosting their financial inclusion. This is achieved by providing a secure, user-friendly platform for users to easily browse through a catalogue of available professional services. Users can simply key in specific keywords and details for the services they need and the system will be able to shortlist the sellers offering the specific services they need. There is also a chat function where the seller and buyer can communicate to ensure that the job deliverables are understood. And lastly the instant review process that allows you to leave your rating for the seller, in terms of professionalism and efficiency markings.
Opportunities for Freelancers and Small Businesses
With the mobile application platform in place, Gigworks meets the rising demand in accessible global opportunities, increased in work flexibility and provides income opportunity for freelancers and small businesses alike. Through leveraging on the engagement between these two forces that drive traffic to the platform, it aims to establish itself as the go-to e- commerce platform for the online professional service industry.
With statistics such as 211,000 people in Singapore choosing freelance work as a regular form of employment in 2019 (The Straits Times) and 82% of freelancers doing freelance work by choice and not necessity (Civil Service College Singapore 2017 report), a platform like Gigworks is truly an essential needed tool to help people and organisations alike to excel in times where one needs to think out of the box for sustainability.
The prevalence trend of freelance work and workers is one that is likely to stay. It has been reported that majority of the workforce in the United States of America will be freelancers by 2027. This trend is likely to spread globally. Organizations are likely to utilise a pool of freelancers to aid with projects should they have constraints on how much they are able to grow their full-time teams due to the restrictions brought about by COVID-19. Gigworks is here to bridge the gap between job opportunities for different social classes, while tapping upon economic trends that connect innovation ecosystems around the world.
