Your freelance team

Kaisa and Emma are our dedicated freelance recruitment team, with a collective 24 years’ experience in servicing freelance clients and candidates across PR, CreativeProductionDigital, and Marketing. They are highly knowledgeable and skilled in sourcing, qualifying, matching, project managing and servicing freelancers into businesses of all sizes, providing both agency and in-house recruitment.
Whether you are a business looking to use freelancers, or a freelancer looking for your next role, you will be in very safe hands.

Looking for a freelancer or to build a roster?

We have a registered pool of trusted freelancers who are all known and qualified. Emma and Kaisa can help you define what you need, to ensure the freelancer you recruit delivers on your requirements, and to advise on the most cost-effective freelance solution.
They can also advise on the updated IR35 legislation coming into effect in April 2021. They are always happy to chat speculatively, as it is often advisable to be introduced to freelancers in anticipation of any urgent, last-minute, needs you might have in the future.
Whether you want their help proactively or you find yourselves with an immediate freelance recruitment need, you can contact them at freelance@btbpeople.co.uk

Looking to go freelance?

So, you’ve decided to explore a career as a professional freelancer? Freelancing can be extremely rewarding, but it also has its challenges, so it is wise to think things through thoroughly.
 
There are times when our freelance recruitment team is at capacity, but we do want to help. We have plenty of advice here on our website, on the ‘Insights/Advice’ page, and we are also planning on delivering ‘kick start your career’ seminars in 2021.
If you’d like to register your interest for when we have established the dates, then please email us at info@btbpeople.co.uk  with the subject ‘freelance seminar’.
