Why Use a Freelance Talent Agency?
CommsPeople grew out of its founders’ frustration with the limitations of many virtual freelancer sites. The matching process between brief and candidate was poor, resource-heavy, and hugely time-consuming. There had to be a better way.
CommsPeople aims to take the pain and guesswork out of finding talent with exactly the right experience and expertise. The CommsPeople team is experienced communications professionals so skilled at understanding briefs and building teams quickly and reliably. All candidates are pre-screened and unlike recruitment services, there are no fees.
The CommsPeople process
1. Talk to us about what talent you need
What kind of talent do you need? What’s the project? What specific skills do you require?
We’ll spend time with you to understand your needs. Whether it’s a single freelancer or a cross-functional team of experts, we will work with you to identify the brief and skill set needed.
2. We hand-select the perfect match
After we agree on the brief, the Comms People team swings into action, using our expertise to source the perfect freelancer talent from our community of top talent.
3. We help onboard them to become part of your team
We understand the importance of getting the onboarding process right. We can advise throughout this stage, ensuring contracts are in place, milestones agreed, and expectations are clear.
Every CommsPeople freelancer has been through our rigorous five-stage screening process. This includes submission of previous work, reviewing CVs, portfolios, and social media accounts, an in-depth interview, and references. After each assignment, CommsPeople will review performance with the client with a view to maintaining quality across all projects.
Is it riskier than an agency?
Not at all, it’s just different. However, you won’t be tied into long term contracts with our freelancers unless you want to be. CommsPeople is a group of trusted professionals who will be able to give you honest professional advice, whatever the comms activity you need. Drop us a line via the contact form and we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.
CommsPeople, and any freelancer on our platform will be happy to sign an NDA with you if required.
What is the average day rate I should expect to pay?
It really does depend on the scope of work and the level of experience you are looking for. However, if you wish to chat this through, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line.
