We have always been committed to rethinking the world of work, to make careers in passion-fuelled professions easier.
Founded in 2016, Brigad was born from the observation that the job market had been steering passionate people away from their calling.
We take the weight off of businesses under pressure by connecting them with
reliable self-employed professionals, and managing the administrative side of their relationship.
Most importantly, we give Talents the chance to regain control of their career and
time with personalised missions to suit their individual needs.
Our vision of flexible work.
The are professions that we choose, suffer through and turn up to work at 9am armed with patience to get through the day. But then, there are others: those which choose us. They become a part of us and allow us to express ourselves.
But choosing a career is no easy task.
It is a choice we must make on our own, and we may feel ill-equipped or isolated. And yet, it is also sacred. There's nothing more disheartening than a caregiver who doesn't care, or a waiter who can't wait to go home.
So, at Brigad, we're fighting for your life's passion to be heard, so it can prosper and grow.
It's in our DNA to help each professional in the Hospitality and Care sector exercise their profession while being valued and respected, but most importantly independent and free.
Because freedom enables talent to shine.
We offer a model that allows people living with passion, to also make a living from it. We're placing at their disposal an online tool and community, uniting those who work enthusiastically to make society more caring and human.
We are rethinking the world of work to make careers in passion-fuelled professions, fully appreciated and fairly paid.
... and that's our life's passion!

Passion and Entrepreneurship
Brigad was founded in 2016 by two passionate entrepreneurs. Florent Malbranche (CEO) and Jean Lebrument (CPO) aimed to use their skills to help those who had also decided to pursue their life's passion.
Initially dedicated to the Hospitality industry (the co-founders' sector), their activity expanded in 2020 to include roles in Healthcare aswell. Brigad then officially became a mission-driven company, and continues to expand into distinct industries.
