Why become a Blumer?

So you want to be a Blumer?

Great decision – Blume is an exciting digital platform where you can share your skills and expertise with those who need them. Blume is where you can meet potential employers, and where you join a vibrant community of talented over-50’s who want flexible, interesting work. 

We make everything run smoothly, and ensure you get paid. 

The Blume advantage

On Blume you get to be your own boss, choose what you want to do, and who you want to work with. Working online uses technology to give talented people freedom, variety and options. As long as you have skills, a computer, internet and the desire to deliver great solutions, then you can be part of Blume. Work remotely, or personally supply services in your area – it’s up to you.

How do I know I’ll get my money?

This is the magic of Blume – when a task is agreed, the fee is deducted from the buyer’s account and stored by Stripe (a third-party payment service) until the task is completed. At this point, the money is transferred to you, minus our commission of around 10% which goes to paying the people who keep the website and all the other aspects of Blume functioning.

I’m feeling philanthropic

To make sure everyone takes Bluming seriously, you must charge at least £7.83 (the national living wage). If you don’t need the money, we have a facility for donating it to charity. If you don’t know how much to charge for your work, then take a look at our Guide.

Can I trust Blume?

Indeed you can. Naturally we would say that, but in this case it’s true. We have strict Terms & Conditions (https://blume.life/pages/terms) that we abide by, and all the latest encryption services to protect your data.
