Thousands of creative specialists across the globe

Flexsourcing™ opens up a global team of premium talent, giving you a plug and play extension to your core team at any scale, whenever you need

ready to turbocharge your content capability

Over the years, we’ve met some amazing people around the world — specialists in their field and fun to work with. They’re more like FRIENDS than ‘collaborators’ – an extended family we can call on whenever we need something specific.

Technology has enabled us to bring all this together – creating an online community where everyone benefits. Working with FRIENDS is way more fun. They’re collaborative, creative and will always go the extra mile for you.

Our curated community provides you with best in class makers, planners and doers, giving your plug and play extension to your core team at any scale, whenever you need.

How FLEXSOURCING Works

With our proprietary technology we connect everyone together – brand partners, us, and our global community of makers — one online place where we all benefit. We call it FLEXSOURCING.

Let the right candidate come to you

Using our smart matching algorithm, briefs are posted to the exact &FRIENDS community that matches your brief. On average 8 perfectly matched candidates apply in the first 3 hours. You can also search using our powerful search to filter the community.

Shortlist, Message and book instantly

As an applicant shortlist is built, you can review their profile page – showcasing their specialisms, background and best work. You have access to everyone’s availability, and can instantly message and book them through the site.

Pay-as-you-go flexibility

You only pay for people you need, versus shelling out for people you don’t even know. Spend more money on reaching your audience and delivering your KPIs.

A True community

&FRIENDS is more than just a name – and way more than a platform. It’s a buzzing community of global makers, connected by the desire to do great work.

Throughout the year we host events, discussions, workshops and more – where makers, clients and other friends can hear from influential creatives and thinkers from the wider cultural world.

Alongside this, all our makers can get mentoring opportunities from more senior friends – a chance to collaborate and grow.
