Leverage your life experience with Viewber

Posted on 28 Jan

Viewber was founded with the intention of seeking out and using the gig, or sharing economy. But what is it and why do you hear some negative comments.

I’m still not sure who said it, maybe it was Warren Buffet, that in twenty years time everyone would have 120 jobs.

One of the issues politicians air, and industry has found difficult to implement, is utilising experience inherent in older workers. The majority have plenty of earning power in them, they just don’t want to work full time, and increasingly if they can work and earn locally so much the better.

These are typically those that make up the gig/sharing economy. They can be working people looking to earn extra cash when it suits them.

The negative comments appear to come when those employed within the gig economy use such work as their sole source of income. There are obvious issues here that fall away if and when the work taken is not only when it suits the worker but is also not the sole source of their income.

Certainly the software developed by Viewber gives such workers, once suitably vetted and informed, a unique chance to indulge in two of the Country’s favourite pastimes – earning a bit of extra money on the side and talking about property.

Watching Bob on the ‘Become a Viewber’ tab sums up what people like about doing the work, not the least of which is that is also takes advantage of their local knowledge. Given the numbers increasingly signing up it seems to have caught the mood of a workforce, indeed a public, for whom the opportunity to leverage their life experience whilst earning a few quid when it suits might seem to have passed them by.
