JOINING THE HOXBIES
The Hoxby Collective lives and breathes by the #workstyle movement. We believe the working world should be a meritocracy, where everyone is free to work in their own way and evaluated based on their output.

We want to ensure all Associates who join Hoxby are protected contractually. This not only protects the individual Associate but the Community as a whole. As we continue to grow globally, our contracts are written in a way to protect everyone and not on a case by case basis. Should you wish to join Hoxby you will be asked to sign three contracts; an Associate Agreement that works as an umbrella contract between Hoxby and yourself. A Non-Disclosure Agreement as this protects the Intellectual Property created within the community and finally a Proof of Insurance form to confirm your insurance policy details.
I confirm that I understand, that I will need to review and agree to all three documents, before I can join The Hoxby Collective
