We work in a world where flexible working has become more prevalent and more important. We also live in a world where we have become used to creating a profile and sharing information across a network. These two facts are why we created WorkGaps, and why WorkGaps is different.
WorkGaps is designed to make search, scheduling, communication, shift planning, time and attendance, absence management and reporting flow seamlessly following the natural workflow of both managers and their teams.
We built WorkGaps around the premise of social networks. A user creates their own profile. They own their own data. They update their own availability. And then, with a single invite, a user can be connected to a business and managed as part of that team. The individual is not limited or tied to that business’ systems and can be linked to multiple organisations at any point.
We are a network for work. A network with real, useful, functionality. A network which doesn’t simply exist for its own sake, but one that makes people’s lives easie
Our team brings together expertise across product, design, engineering, sales, and marketing from companies including Dell, Memrise, Betfair and HP.
Jon had the idea for WorkGaps while helping a friend with a business problem. Having a strong working relationship with Simon, they put together the framework for WorkGaps in 2014. Experiences in sales, finance, operations and marketing during almost 20 years of corporate life made starting a business a refreshing challenge. When not with his family or on the golf course, he’s passionate about making work easier for everyone and turning WorkGaps into a great place to be.
Simon’s background in technology services made him the ideal person to co-found WorkGaps. Not afraid to get his hands dirty with detailed planning and just as comfortable in customer meetings, WorkGaps was jointly founded on a common set of ideas and trust. He is an experienced leader in the IT Services industry and has led business functions from sales to solutioning and into delivery. Simon has young twin boys, who provide a lot of enjoyable downtime.
Samuel joined WorkGaps to lead technical development. A background in software development, engineering and information security has lead to a straightforward approach in converting real-world issues into technical solutions. Outside working hours, open source community projects and a keen outdoors interest keep him out of trouble.
Client ServicesRead bio
Tanya joined us to lead the client services team, handling everything from the helpdesk to client meetings and user training. Her background in recruitment, HR and working with people from all walks of life make her ideally suited to the role. She’s also an expert baker and keen F1 fan.
Mike has been known to the founders for almost 20 years, during which time he has worked with, and advised, a number of start-up businesses, as well as having founded and managed a recruitment business. His background in software, digital marketing, and recruitment make him the ideal addition to lead the marketing.
Joe leads design for the business. Annoyingly younger than many of the team, he keeps us on the cutting edge of design trends and has made huge improvements since he joined the team mid-2016. When not working, we're trying to keep him from serious snowboard injuries.
Tim has been the Managing Director of CES plc (now FUN plc); the CEO of ensurePay, the CTO of Betfair.com, and the CTO of uSwitch.com. We're delighted he's joined the team to advise on all aspects of our strategy.
Colin was previously known to both founders, having worked in the same company before WorkGaps was born. Colin is a multi-disciplined professional with many years of experience in software and services sales and operations. He is a devoted family man and a long suffering QPR fan.
