Beyond Jobs grew out of multiple UK government investments to create advanced markets for odd hours of work. Wingham oversaw these projects and market launches.
Many years before “The Sharing Economy”, he authored two books (one published internationally) and countless articles about the potential of new markets for irregular economic activity in communities. At the time he was producing and hosting what became the UK’s longest running TV series about the Internet.
He has written multiple policy papers about the “grey zone” between structured work and unemployment in cities. His papers arguing employment policy needs to support better markets for non-standard work have been published by institutes from the anti-poverty left to the free-market right.
