The term ‘gig economy’ has been around for just over a decade now, ever since it emerged out of the 2008/09 financial crisis. The idea that task-based working and the rise of individual entrepreneurship and one-off projects would become such a key factor in the global economy would have been unthinkable while the banks and big businesses were riding so high.Yet, those who have embraced the idea of turning their skills towards short-term projects and jobs, such as consulting, driving, manual labour, crafts, media and the world of entertainment, have seen their fortunes rise in recent years.
