Do you guarantee that I'll win a role?

We aim to secure roles for all Data Freelancers 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 unless we are successful.

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. Additionally, market conditions play a significant role in the availability of positions, affecting the speed at which we can successfully place you. Rest assured, we're on it, and if you win a project by yourself in the meantime, remember there's no fee.

What happens if I find a role by myself in this time period?

You pay absolutely nothing. Our success is tied to yours - we only benefit if we assist you in securing a role. If you find a role through your own network or contacts without DFH's involvement, you owe us nothing. All the support we provide, including building your sales tools and coaching, is complimentary. Our service is dedicated to helping you land a role. If we don't play a part in your success, we don't get paid. It's as simple as that.

I'm a recruiter, looking for quality Data Freelancers how can I contact you?

If you're looking to hire highly skilled data freelancers, with 0% fees, no charges or additional contracts to sign, and you want to work directly with the freelancer, then checkout the find freelancer page to learn more, and submit your request. There's no fee for our service, and your under no obligations to take anyone on.

How much support do you provide with project delivery?

Project delivery falls squarely within your expertise as a skilled Data Freelancer, 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, our agreement extends as well. This ensures our interests remain aligned, as we aim to find you projects with a high likelihood of extension, should you desire it. Any extension beyond two months will continue with the same 5% fee.

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.

What happens if I am unsuccessful in my application, can you still help me?

At the Data Freelance Hub, we've developed a wealth of resources to assist you on your journey. These include a free community, guides & tools, events, a curated job board, and exclusive training. There are numerous ways DFH can support you, even if we're not currently able to assist with Role Scout. With your permission, we can keep your details on record and present them to our network for suitable opportunities that arise, even if we're not actively engaged at the moment.

What happens if the role is won through a platform like Upwork that already has a fee?

If the role we help you secure already has a fee, the Data Freelance Hub's fee will be calculated on the net amount after the other fee is deducted. We aim to negotiate higher rates for roles with existing fees to ensure your net earnings remain consistent. Additionally, we will cover costs associated with applying for roles where necessary, such as connect fees on platforms like Upwork once your connects are depleted. For instance, if you win a role on Upwork paying $100 per hour, Upwork's 10% cut reduces it to $90. After applying DFH's fee, it becomes $81 per hour. We would attempt to bid at $111 per hour to offset the Upwork fee. DFH would also absorb the cost of connects used in applying for that role.

What happens if my role is Inside of IR35 (UK Freelancers)?

First and foremost, we will only apply for roles that match your interests. For instance, if you prefer not to work on roles Inside of IR35, we won't apply for them. In cases where the role is Inside of IR35, our initial step is to negotiate a higher rate to offset the tax difference. Regarding the DFH fee, it will be calculated on the post-tax value (the amount you receive) rather than the pre-tax amount, as is typical for roles Outside of IR35. This approach ensures that the percentage fee stays consistent and isn't artificially inflated compared to the actual value you receive.

How much will it cost me if you help me win a role and when will I pay you?

The DFH fee structure, as exemplified above, operates on a no-win, no-fee basis. This means a fee is only applicable if we have successfully assisted you in securing the role. Once DFH has played a role in your success, a fee of 10% of the revenue earned in both the first and second months will be applied, which then reduces to 5% for all subsequent months. Detailed information regarding this fee structure will be included in the contract that we'll sign together at the beginning of our engagement.

Is there anyway you can help me for a fixed fee rather than an on-going percentage?

The 'Role Scout' program at Data Freelance Hub operates on a no-win, no-fee arrangement. We are compensated by taking a small, ongoing percentage of the revenue generated when we successfully assist you in securing a role. Additionally, for those interested in a more structured approach, we offer 1-to-1 mentorship through the Data Freelance Hub on a fixed-fee basis. This service requires advance payment and provides targeted support in all aspects of being a Data Freelancer. While it doesn't guarantee a role win, it does offer personalised guidance on developing your sales tools and other key skills as needed.

How much work will I need to do myself to find and apply for roles?

You're absolutely free to continue searching for roles on your own. However, when it comes to roles identified by DFH, we can sometimes apply on your behalf. In cases where we cannot do this directly, we will provide you with detailed instructions, including the message to be sent and the recipient's details. For instance, since we won't have access to your LinkedIn account, if a role requires messaging a recruiter or contact, we will identify them and draft the message, but you'll need to send it yourself. Similarly, you are responsible for attending interviews and directly liaising with recruiters and potential clients. Rest assured, DFH will be there to support you with interview preparation and any other sales-related messaging.

How does this differ to working with a recruiter directly? Or platforms like Upwork?

You're likely familiar with the process: finding roles, applying for them, creating your own sales tools, and communicating directly with recruiters. However, if you're here, it's probably because this approach hasn't been as effective as you'd hoped. The 'Role Scout' program is designed to streamline these efforts and leverage proven processes to increase your chances of securing the roles you apply for. We utilise our network of recruiters and provide support in developing effective sales tools, enhancing your attractiveness to recruiters or clients on platforms like Upwork compared to other Data Freelancers. While managing these tasks on your own is cost-free, for many freelancers, it proves inefficient, leading to extended periods of downtime when you could be actively earning.
