  • What is Paperound: connects small businesses with UK student talent to support on ad-
    hoc digital projects. We do this via an online marketplace that allows businesses to book out students to work on digital tasks, when they need them.

    All of our Student Taskers are verified UK students who have been pre-vetted by the
    Paperound team based on their initiative, relevant skillsets and business acumen.

    Why we exist
    Our aim is to unlock prosperity for young people and small businesses in the UK by
    reducing any barriers for them to work together on digital projects.

    For students, kickstarting a skilled career is difficult when entry-level jobs are
    becoming more competitive and employers expect students to already have skills
    and experience. For small businesses, they have 100s of tasks on their to-do list but
    limited budgets to find resource to help. Paperound brings these needs together to help students get real work experience while helping small businesses simply get more work done, at the times
    they need it most.
