Webinar recording – Sourcing and supporting the perfect freelancer

About the Webinar

Outsourcing work to a freelancer or individual practitioner enables organisations to fill gaps in knowledge and expertise and provides exciting opportunities for fresh ideas and creative thinking. But the process of finding, engaging and working with the right person can be overwhelming.

In this 55-minute webinar, Digital Content Tech Champion Dean Shaw will pull from his own experience as a working freelancer to support you in your search for the perfect person for your next project. You’ll learn the best places to find content creators, web designers and social media experts and get tips on how to choose the right person for the job.  Dean will share useful contract and agreement templates (see resources below) and explain how you can set the foundations for a harmonious and efficient working relationship.

You will learn

  • The different types of freelancers
  • Tools for managing relationships with freelancers
  • The best places to find the right freelancers
