Not covered here? Drop us a message using the details on our contact page.

Can you summarise how this works?

Once you apply, our team will review your profile to ensure we're a good fit for each other. Then we'll hop on a call to understand more about your goals and get started. We'll set you up on our Role Scout platform, create a dedicated private chat channel, and schedule regular coaching calls. We'll revamp your CV, LinkedIn, and other assets you'll use to land interviews. When it's time to interview, we'll help you research the role and company, and conduct mock interviews with you. Only once you've landed the role and been paid does the DFH fee kick in; all of our support up to that point is free of charge.

What happens once I've won a role?

Once you've landed a role, our collaboration pauses (for now). The materials we've developed for you are yours to leverage in securing future positions, and your profile should be attractive to recruiters. You're under no obligation to work with us again (although we'd love it if you do). Should you choose to partner with us again down the line, we offer a 30% discount on the same program to assist you in winning your next role.

How long does it typically take to win a role?

When working with each candidate, our goal is to secure them a role within a few weeks. However, many factors, some beyond our control, can influence this timeline. A broad skillset and extensive experience can expand the range of suitable opportunities, potentially shortening the time to find a role.

How much support do you provide with project delivery?

Project delivery falls squarely within your expertise as a skilled Data Professional, and it's your responsibility to ensure successful completion. While we're always available to provide your thoughts on contract-related matters such as extensions, renegotiating rates, or new project scopes, the actual delivery of the agreed work and handling any associated data issues are in your capable hands.

What happens if my role gets extended?

If your role is extended beyond the initial term, lucky you! The DFH fee is a one-time payment made after your first paycheck. There are no additional payments required, and you're free to decide how long you want to continue working with that client.

I want to apply, will you accept me?

To increase your chances of being accepted, please carefully review the above requirements and strive to meet as many as possible. When applying, provide detailed information about your current situation, as this will assist us in assessing our ability to help you effectively.

Do you guarantee that I'll win a role?

We aim to secure roles for all data pros we partner with, but cannot guarantee this at present. Hence, we operate on a no-win, no-fee basis. We are dedicated to assisting you in finding a well-paid role, ensuring there are no charges for you until we are successful.

My application wasn't succesfull, can you still help me?

At the Data Freelance Hub, we've developed a wealth of resources to assist you on your journey. You're welcome to use our free job board on the website, pay monthly for the Role Scout platform, and follow our LinkedIn page to find roles. We also release content on our blog that you can learn from and apply to your business.

What's the fee and when do I pay it?

The DFH fee structure operates on a pay-when-you-win basis, meaning you don't pay anything until you've secured your next role and received payment. The role must have a gross contract value above £10,000 for the fee to apply, or we wait until the next qualifying contract you secure. If the contract is deemed to be Outside of IR35, the fee is £2,750 + VAT. For all other contract types, the fee is £2,000 + VAT. Full terms are detailed in the contract.

How can I lower the fee I pay to DFH?

On this page, we discussed our pay-when-you-win model. We also offer the same service with an upfront payment option. With this option, you'll receive a £1,000 discount on the listed fee detailed above. The primary difference is that this does not include the pay-when-you-win guarantee, and support is capped at 3 months.

How much work will I need to do myself?

The Role Scout program is a partnership where we each play distinct roles. Our role is to help you identify relevant positions, determine who to contact, and how to reach out. We'll also collaborate with you to develop your sales assets and enhance your processes through coaching. Your role is to apply for the positions we find, take timely action on our recommendations, and stay engaged with the process. Once your sales assets are in place, the application process should take you about 1 hour per day.

Why choose Role Scout over working with recruiters directly or Upwork?

The 'Role Scout' program streamlines finding and applying for roles using proven processes. We leverage our recruiter network and develop effective sales tools, enhancing your profile on platforms like Upwork. Managing these tasks alone is free but often inefficient, leading to extended downtime when you could be earning.
