    Make yourself stand out

    Your profile is your most valuable resource. Clients browse your profile when deciding who to work with on a project, so it’s essential that you present yourself in the best way possible. Personalise your profile by sharing your career experience, define your skills and tell your own story. Show examples of your work in your portfolio, be descriptive and keep your profile up-to-date.

  • Find the perfect projects for you

    Offer your best skills at your best price

    We know that every freelancer on is different, so we created offers. Don’t be defined by a skill or category — express your own skills with self-tailored offers. Sell your custom services in bitesize offers and start building lasting relationships with clients.

  • Build lasting relationships with clients

    Clients love completing projects through because they are engaged in the new skills and abilities you provide. During a project, you’ll uncover many insights to your client’s business and these are a great opportunity to develop lasting working relationships. The project stream is designed for you to manage ongoing and recurring work including auto-invoicing on set dates.
