"Make work attractive and accessible to all"

This is the mission that drives us every day and allows thousands of self-employed professionals to earn a living, all whilst giving businesses the chance to work with the best talent.

"Work your way" : Brigad makes it possible for thousands of self-employed professionals to do their job in a more free, flexible and rewarding way. It has also allowed businesses in France and in the UK to instantly find qualified and reliable profiles for their short-term staffing needs.

The challenge we have set ourselves is to open the world of self-employment to those that we don't normally think of when we hear the word “freelance”.

Join Brigad and be part of building tomorrow’s world of work and have a positive impact on our community and wider society.

User interviews

Souleymane Ghenimi

Souleymane is a self-employed chef who is passionate about French food and cooking. He told us about his restaurant work experience. From hearty home cooking spots to the most prestigious Parisian dining establishments, Souleymane has learnt a lot from his many missions. Thanks to Brigad, he has been able to devote more time to his project of opening his own bistro and being head chef of his very own kitchen.

Ornis Lodi

Ornis has been using Brigad since 2011. Becoming self-employed has allowed her to approach her job as a carer with a fresh perspective, gain new skills, and work with new people in new organisations.

Today, she tells us that she is very happy and looks forward to getting out of bed every morning to go to work!

Giancarlo Princigalli

We visited Aquavit London, one of our business users in the UK. We were welcomed by the General Manager of this Scandinavian restaurant, Giancarlo Princigalli, and we spoke about the staff shortages that run through the hospitality industry.

He explained how using Brigad allowed him to plan a rota around his existing staff and backup teams. He has recommended Brigad and our easy-to-use application to his friends in the industry.


At its core, Brigad has always believed that anyone should be able to pursue his/her passion while being well valued, considered and, above all, free. This means being able to fulfill oneself in one’s job and career, reaching a sustainable work-life balance, being paid in a fair way and respected.

Brigad is proud to enable thousands of talents, and tomorrow millions, to experience this lifestyle. We believe so firmly in our mission “Make work attractive and valuable to all” that we even decided to carve it into the charter of our “entreprise à mission” status (equivalent to US B-Corp).

Since 2016, this ambition is translated into building the best app of the market enabling self-employed professionals and hospitality businesses to connect for short-term missions.

⭐️ Our users realize that we make a difference by currently giving a NPS of 77/100 over 5,000 answers, and sharing how Brigad changed their life.

If originally Brigad deployed itself in the catering (restaurants, collective catering) and healthcare sectors (care homes and clinics), tomorrow, even more sectors will be concerned: everywhere talents aren’t equipped to pursue their passion while being properly considered and free.

Brigad is currently available in the largest cities in France (Paris, Lille, Lyon, Bordeaux, Marseille, Strasbourg..) and in the UK, with the ambition to expand well beyond in France and Europe.

Exciting challenges are waiting for you: expect to discover new countries, new industries, a top-notch product, a fast-paced development, and above all a solid team united around a truly concrete and positive impact on our daily users’ lives. A spirit that can also be found on Glassdoor and the grade of 4.7/5.

What they are looking for

Brigad’s fundamental values guide us each day in order to tackle those challenges with consistency and build an extremely strong culture:

  • Brave : Be bold and make courageous moves.
  • Impact : Do things that make a real difference.
  • Care : Pay attention to all the people around you.
  • Enjoy : Love what you do and have fun

Good to know

Brigad guarantees equal opportunities to all candidates. Each application received is put into consideration regardless of ethnic and racial origin, opinions, beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, health or handicap.
