About us

Paperound is a marketplace for busy small business owners to access student resource, on-demand.

UK Students (‘Taskers’) can be booked for as a little as one hour on a task-by task-basis, and founders only pay when the work is done. 

As a small business we know that committing to hiring people can be difficult. You might need the extra support right now, but will you need them next month? We also know that often, there just isn’t enough hours in the day to get through everything on your desk.

That’s why we created Paperound – where you can easily get an extra pair of hands, whether it’s for a day, or even just an hour. 

Our Taskers are capable UK university students who are keen to build their experience and also need the flexibility of working around their studies.  All of our Taskers are verified UK students handpicked by the Paperound team.

It’s great to have you using our service – here’s to getting more done!

Our Story

Paperound was born out of our founder’s personal experience as a student, consultant and founder, and observing a number of work issues he felt could simply be resolved.

As a student, he realised without the network of business contacts, it was a struggle to get any real work experience to help kick-start a career. It’s a highly competitive space and not everyone has access to often scarce opportunities.

As a consultant and founder, with the pressure of limited budgets and an unlimited work to-do list, he found it impossible to quickly find access to an extra pair of hands when he needed it most – especially for those tedious tasks that just soaked-up time.

A perfect storm – to get everyday work tasks done remotely


With the impact of the pandemic and the boom in remote working, it had created the perfect storm to launch Paperound – a marketplace connecting high-calibre UK students with small businesses that need the extra resource when it’s needed most, to get more work done cost-efficiently.

A perfect combination for students and small businesses


Already our UK students are benefiting from not only gaining exceptional work experience to help their careers but also being paid for the tasks they deliver. Small businesses are quickly realising they can access reliable high-calibre student talent by the hour and deliver quality results, on time and on budget. Typical tasks are Marketing Content writing, Admin, Market Research and new tasks are being added all the time.

For students and small businesses, it’s the perfect combination to #getmoredone.
