Interview with freelancer Jan G.
Jan found himself unemployed for the first time in his career, at the age of 50, because of a reorganisation of his department in 2009. After an Indian summer, he took matters into his own hands and attended one of our ‘To freelance or not to freelance’ workshops.
What is HRbuilders’ added value?
Because of HRbuilders, I can focus on my projects without having to worry about my own ‘sales’. They guarantee to find the perfect fit on a skills and cultural level. HRbuilders has built a real community of HR professionals. It’s great to be a part of that community and join the fascinating workshops and get to meet so many inspiring peers
Are there any differences compared to working with other providers?
I see a lot of differences between different providers. HRbuilders is in my top 3 of favourite agencies to work with, because of our open and honest partnership.
How are you experiencing the collaboration?
I think of the collaboration between myself and HRbuilders as an honest partnership. HRbuilders is completely transparent when it comes to the terms and conditions and financial aspects of the contract. Finally, it especially pleasant to have my monthly invoices paid so punctually.
Why do you think freelancers need to contact us?
If you’re thinking of starting a career as an HR freelancer, you should absolutely meet with the market leader. Talk to HRbuilders about your strengths and what is important to you. It’s key for them to know you as a person before they can match you to one of their clients. Don’t wait until you see an assignment on the website. In the world of Interim Management, speed is of the utmost importance and open assignments won’t be available after just a couple of days. HRbuilders should know you before they hear about the new opportunity.
