We're Collective Benefits - Insurance, wellbeing and savings for flexible workers
Why Collective Benefits?
Right now, the people who care for our families, pack our produce and deliver our parcels face a fragile financial existence. And that’s not right. We believe they deserve to live and work without compromise. So we’re doing something about it.
At Collective, we’re enabling companies with the right intentions to provide the right protections. Working directly with the on-demand platforms propelling our economy forward. Helping them ramp up recruitment and retention, increase engagement and protect their people. All at the same time. Together, we’re making independent work, work for everyone.
We’re backed by the world’s leading VCs - Stride, NFX and Prosus Ventures, and have been featured in The Economist, TechCrunch and The Times (to name a few). And as we expand operations across the UK and Europe, our mission is gaining momentum.

We are already working with some of the world’s most respected companies to increase the financial resilience of their workforce, driving higher retention and recruitment as a result. Companies including Just Eat, TaskRabbit, IndeedFlex and Wolt rely on our services to support their people. For their workers, our benefits are life-changing.
