SeniorSquirrels.com is the first platform in the world that seamlessly connects skilled and experienced retired professionals with people and businesses.
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 13 April 2015
Founded after entrepreneur Matthew Twist realised there was no easy way for his mother to utilise her accounting skills during her retirement, SeniorSquirrels.com is the world’s first micro job platform for the senior generation. The companies mission is to connect the 50+ population of the UK, Europe and the USA with organisations and individuals who need help to complete skilled micro jobs.
Founder Matthew Twist said: ‘The retired and semi retired population of the UK is a vast and growing untapped resource of knowledge and experience. SeniorSquirrels.com is the first platform in the world that seamlessly connects this resource with people and businesses who can use it.’
The full launch of the service is schedule for Summer 2015 but the company are currently signing up ‘Super Squirrels’ via their website who will benefit from access to the first jobs.
The company is attracting a lot of attention on social media with many journalists comparing the service to TaskRabbit. Mr Twist added: “‘Of course we are flattered to be compared to TaskRabbit but we address a different market and a different need. SeniorSquirrels.com focus is on connecting skilled and experienced people with businesses and individuals who need their help. It could be a requirement for an expert gardener or a retired accountant, either way we make the connection. The Senior Squirrel generates an extra income from their hobby or expertise whilst the customers who use the service hire skilled people without the traditional overheads of employment.’
