Q&A

What are 3 words to describe UnWork?

Innovative, Exciting, Bold

What drew you to UnWork originally? And how has UnWork changed since?

I came from a legal background and UnWork appeared to be diametrically opposed to some of my key frustrations about the legal industry. When I started looking to leave that career, I was looking for something fresh and exciting which was a world away from the stuffy traditions of the bar. Where law was traditional and stagnant, UnWork’s raison d'être was to challenge these conventions and consider new ways of doing old things. As such, when I first joined UnWork I found it to be wholly refreshing. In my time here, UnWork has continued to grow as a champion for much needed cultural, physical and technological change across a range of industries.
