Australia’s Gig economy and the rise of the side-hustle

Stay-at-Home Laundry Jobs in Sydney & Melbourne

Uber Eats, Menulog, Deliveroo – they’re names Aussie households have become all too familiar with, especially throughout COVID-19 when ordering in became the new going out.

The popularity of such services combined with cuts to part-time work has seen more people turn to freelance work, opting for the independent contractor rather than the traditional employee route.

According to website CXC Global, the dramatic rise of a flexible workforce was one of the key things to emerge from 2020, and it’s something that is set to continue in 2021.

The shift to gig-style consulting jobs is evident in almost every known industry. Outside of technology, where CXC says it has been happening for some time, other job categories include: Marketers, Drivers (think Uber and food delivery) and Tradespeople.

Benefits of an independent contractor model

So, what exactly are the benefits of independent contractor roles and ‘gig’ work?

  • Choose your own work days and hours
  • Fits around family commitments
  • Gives you a sense of achievement and ability to be your own boss
  • Minimal start-up costs
  • Become part of a bigger brand, where the marketing is done for you

Start your side hustle, or make it a full-time opportunity

In addition to the growing Gig Economy, which is where ‘gig’ workers enter into formal agreements with on-demand companies – the side-hustle is also booming in Australia.  

“Often, the side-hustle is what’s known as a ‘passion project’ – the type of work individuals desire to perform, which is often different from the work at their typical ‘job’,” the article from CXC explains.

“With worker demand for the side-hustle on the rise and smart organisations seeing a huge opportunity for awesome productivity and output gains, the side-hustle will prove to be a major win-win in the organisation-worker relationship. It’s one of those gig economy trends in Australia that’s ramping up right now.”

Whether you’re looking to supplement your income, or create full-time opportunities, there are many options out there for flexible work-life options.

With all the benefits of a franchise, and award-winning established online booking system, it couldn’t be easier to start your side-hustle. Start small, or choose to build your income. It’s up to you.

If you’d like to turn your washing machine into a money maker, and earn income with your iron, then it’s time to apply now and find out more! Laundry Ladies and Lads welcome – ideal for stay at home parents, students, job seekers, and more.
