Growth Journey

redwigwam was founded 4 years ago by serial entrepreneur Lorna Davidson, who previously founded and profitably exited Tactical Solutions. Her new firm, uses AI-powered algorithms to match workers with employers’ short-term or ad-hoc opportunities with 98% of posts filled within 4 hours, allowing them to meet fluctuating staffing requirements.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, they have seen the number of workers on their database surge to over 130,000 and the number of hirers increase by almost 400 to over 3,500 since the lockdown began at the end of March.

The investment from NPIF allows the firm to strengthen its senior management team in the Liverpool region. Steve Harris joins as Managing Director with responsibility for tech and operations, while Dawn Paine joins as Marketing Director. The funding will also enable the business to invest further in its proprietary tech platform and its marketing and advertising campaigns.
