Creative and Digital Talent Outsourcing.

On a mission to make remote work easy, enjoyable and productive.

About us

Over 20 years combined experience we have been lucky enough to have worked for and partnered with some of the most respected individuals and creative agencies such as Leo Burnett, The Monkeys, M&C Saatchi, Ogilvy & Mather, Lowe, Saatchi & Saatchi in Australia and South Africa. We connect small and larger businesses to all levels and disciplines across the world.

Alongside our Talent approach, Lauren spent over 10 years in Digital Production more recently using innovative processes and Belinda has 20 years of internal operations and operations experience. We see remote operations as the future of work the bridge between the business and the talent.

What we offer

There are tons of contract recruitment and freelance companies out there; what makes us so special?

We’ve hand-picked our freelancers according to three specific criteria: Sheer talent; professionalism; and experience. You won’t find them on Gumtree. We connect you for a small finders fee.


The amazing people in our pool of talent are all from Cape Town. We set you up with an Operations workflow plan – Slack, Asana, Trello, Zoom – we’ll help find ways to work together.


We started this business because we love this stuff. We love matching talent to projects. We love helping with Individual Coaching on how to work internationally especially in this remote work environment.

Flexible and Global opportunity

We really are in a work revolution.

The massive trend towards more conscious, balanced living, coupled with the power of today’s technology, means we can now work anywhere, anytime. We can communicate, share files and conduct meetings – in other words, we can truly and effectively collaborate, all without being in the same room or even the same country.

We are experienced in “running remote”.  Creating new ways for businesses and creatives to work together.

Clients, Talent, say hello!
