Millions of young Brits are following their passions and earning a little extra money by developing projects on the side, often on social media or shared economy platforms. In a recent survey by Airtasker, 70% of young Brits claimed to have a ‘side hustle’, with 34% devoting as much as 20 hours a week to it. While people often start such projects for financial reasons, to earn extra money to cover debts and expenses (20%) or to save up for a house (14%), 12% do them to fulfil an interest and 9% to acquire new skills. Airtasker is a community marketplace that connects people and businesses with members of the local community who can earn extra money by doing jobs people need help with.
