How Blume works

Blume connects experienced freelancers with charities who need flexible, high-quality and experienced support.

For Charities, Blume gives access to a vast array of experienced, talented, vetted freelancers and a platform which enables you to hire and pay them professionally and seamlessly.  In addition to reading about what our Blumers have done and reviews of their work, you have the confidence of knowing that we have verified their name, address and bank details.  In addition our Recommended Blumers have all been interviewed by us and had references taken. You can find the support you need by searching for what you want, by browsing our list of Blumers, by posting a task, or by contacting us directly.

For Freelancers, Blume gives you an opportunity to make use of your skills and experience in a way that suits you.  You can choose when you work, how much you charge and who you work with.  Through our networks, marketing and partnerships we bring customers to you and provide you with a platform to handle payments, communication and disputes (on the rare occasion that they arise).


What is Blume

We are strongly mission-driven and values-led and are applying for B-Corps status which will certify that we have embedded our mission and values into the way we operate.

If you are interested in governance – and why, for example, we have chosen not to be a social enterprise or a charity - you can read more about our decision in our blog post.
