Being Engaged to Work / Engaging Someone to Work for you
The way we are offered and the way we offer freelance work will vary enormously across sectors, across types of work and across sizes of organisations or employers.
Sections 1-3 deal with best practice for the beginning of this process, and should be considered carefully in advance by anyone planning to engage a freelancer.
We have also drafted a script for freelancers to help you with some basic questions to ask at the first point of contact with an employer. This is also useful for those employing freelancers as a guide to the information you need to have ready before before you contact your freelancer. Read those suggested questions here.
