Help us move on…

by | Jul 4, 2019 | News, Our story

It’s been a busy six months here at That Works For Me – we’re pushing on with building our fully-functioning platform and we’ve launched our Make It Work community For our next big step we need you to help us! Read on to find out how you can get involved… 

 

Where we are

The Make It Work community is really thriving, with more members joining all the time. We have features from coaches, freelancers and flexible work seekers and are really proud of the content we’re producing. We’re super grateful to everyone that has contributed! 

Do you have something to say with regards to flexible working? We’d love to feature you – please contact us to find out more. 

 

What’s still to come 

Our true purpose is still to be fulfilled, but our mission is very clear. We want to bring parents back into the workplace and stop hard-earned skills going to waste. We want to facilitate a more diverse range of professional, flexible working opportunities so people can reclaim their time through work-life balance, and small businesses can manage their resources more efficiently. We want to bring businesses skills and experience without the long-term commitment, making consultancy affordable.

To do this, we need the platform we have been working on up and running. This will connect businesses, freelancers and people seeking flexible work; facilitating projects and opportunities from start to finish to achieve our mission. Read more about how it works. 

As you can imagine, the actual platform build is pretty complex! It’s taking us longer than we expected (as with most IT projects!) but we are getting there and have recently hit another major milestone: we’re in the testing phase! Woohoo! Once our functional testing is complete, a beta version will be available to our registered members for user testing. Once tested and working brilliantly, we will be able to launch! 

 

How You Can Help Us

To get to the launch, we need your help! We need you to register now. We’ll send you a link to set yourself up as a user, and then report back on how easy or difficult it was to do, along with any errors you come across. We know that time is precious and not everyone will be able to get involved, but for everyone that helps, we will make it worth your while (nudge nudge wink wink)!

This is a hugely exciting time for us, as we turn our dreams into reality. We are within a finger-tips reach of making our platform live, with just a few more hurdles to jump over before we can start making flexible working a more accessible reality for working parents, businesses, freelancers, people seeking flexible work – the lot! We thank you so much for your ongoing support, stick with us for the final lap and it will all be worth it very soon!
