Julia is a podcaster, network builder and campaigner with a passion for the rights of all independent workers. Like many people, the pandemic made Julia re-evaluate her purpose, and she founded IWORK to support and champion the UK's army of temps, agency workers, gig economy workers, contractors and the self-employed.
Before setting up IWORK Julia single-handedly grew FCSA, a compliance standard for accountants and umbrellas, from an unheard-of niche organisation to becoming ubiquitous within the recruitment supply chain. Here she led unprecedented growth, successfully raising the profile of FCSA and it’s influence within the government, recruitment sector and employers.
In recent years, Julia became increasingly frustrated that the people most affected by tax and employment legislation are those with the least control in their own status. In July 2020, Julia left FCSA in a position of strength as she launched IWORK and her mission to empower all independent workers so they get the fair deal they deserve.
