COVID-19 has accelerated the disruption to the UK’s job market, catalysing an ongoing decline in permanent employment. Now, one in seven workers in the UK are on flexible contracts, up 25% over two decades. These workers are part of the growing quantum employment fleet, defined as a contractor working small, incremental jobs across a range of employers or end clients.
