What is a freelance recruiter?

The freelance recruitment model explained.


What is a freelancer?

A form of self employment, freelancers lend their skills and talents to a number of clients on a flexible basis. They aren’t employed by a company or committed to a single customer.

Freelancers have the freedom to choose projects they’d like to work on and the clients they would like to work for. They usually work from home, although some rent office space.

Freelancer vs. contracting

Contractors tend to work on fixed term contracts for an end client and typically based from the clients facilities. Paid on a day rate with some fixed KPIs to achieve. Typically paid PAYE or umbrella.

Freelancers on the other hand tend to work for multiple clients at any time and work from their home or rent office space. They are free to work what hours they feel appropriate and are paid on results outcomes. 

How do I become a Freelance Recruiter?

There is no set path to freelancing, but to succeed in any form of self-employment you will need the motivation, enthusiasm and passion for your work to secure clients and build your career from the ground.

Going freelance means setting up your business, completing tax returns, funding payroll services, advertising costs, purchasing I.T equipment and keeping up to date with employment law updates.
