Tim Fung, Co-founder and CEO of Airtasker, says: “This spring we’ve seen a rise in Brits using Airtasker to book Taskers for home improvements. Prices have dropped by 33% as on the flipside, there has been a 216% increase in Tasker sign ups as people want to earn extra cash given the current macroeconomic conditions. This has created a cost-of-living eco-system, which connects the community to meet all budgets.

“With people planning summer spruce ups, we wanted to show what can be achieved by working with The Style Sisters who will share secrets of how Brits can still get a luxury look for less”.

When asked if people would pay to have a skilled worker do up their home, one in four 18- to 24-year-olds said they already pay for help, which suggests they don’t have the time or skills but do have disposable income compared with other age groups. 

“This is the first time we have been able to work with people on this scale, so we’re looking forward to helping locals and making people feel proud of their homes” says Charlotte Reddington from The Style Sisters.

Gemma Lilly continues: “We would love to hear about what challenges people are facing in their homes, what areas they would like to rework and their aims so we can give the best advice”.
