Championing the future of work since 2012

What is TheLinkCompany?

TheLinkCompany is revolutionising the future of work. What started out as a curated marketplace for the creative industries has grown into the leading platform for London’s elite freelance creative network. Our platform supports the entire engagement lifecycle, from finding the perfect freelancer for your brief, through transparent and direct communication (no intermediary), to contract and time management, billing, and analytics.

We have a single bold mission: Unlock the true potential of freelance.

Why is TheLinkCompany a city-based marketplace?

“We see tangible benefits in hiring freelancers to augment an existing team. A person who can appreciate — and build on — the dynamic of other people working on the same problem, in the same room. So for us, that happens when both parties are physically accessible to each other. London and were the most logical launchpads to streamline our service for the ever-increasing creative workforce. But every day sees more incredible creative professionals, from designers to developers, strategists to project managers, from all over the world register on TheLinkCompany to influence where we go next.”

Why just creative? Why not all kinds of freelancers?

We believe creative people own the future of work. TheLinkCompany stands for these unique individuals who think, design and build that future from a position of independence and tactical engagement.

There’s no point saying you have an answer for the global shift in freelancing if the people building that solution don’t have first-hand experience of what’s going on. Just about everyone working at TheLinkCompany has experience as a freelancer or in working with them.

Every iteration of TheLinkCompany has not only been heavily influenced by the freelancer community — the platform has been built by freelancers from the TheLinkCompany Network. From design to development to communications, we’ve wanted to practise what we preach.

Join our team!

When we started TheLinkCompany in 2017, we selfishly wanted to build a company that we ourselves wanted to work for. We had each been in companies that not only made the day-to-day experience enjoyable, but also empowered people to collectively achieve a common goal. We thought that was a pretty decent place to start in recreating that same environment for TheLinkCompany.
