For Engineering Hiring Managers
Hiring a Freelance Team Will Save You Money
When you hire a freelance engineer you are not responsible for many of the costs associated with a traditional employee. In most cases you are not providing office space, laptops, software, and much of the other equipment that is necessary for an engineer or product design team to work.
Freelancers are hired when you need them and for a limited time period which ensures every hour is chargeable. By doing this, you can hire experts that you normally may not be able to afford.
Less red tape, no benefits package required, no holiday pay and best of all – no severance or compensation needed at the end of the assignment. While you may pay marginally higher rates for freelancers the lack of associated expenses still makes freelance engineers and production designers a more cost-effective hire.
Customize Your Hired Team to Suit Your Needs
You benefit from hiring a freelance team by being able to pick and choose the expertise you require. To be successful, freelancers must be disciplined, independently motivated, and must continually hone their skills and that’s a huge bonus for you.
Freelance engineers and designers will often take on projects covering a wide range of topics. This exposes them to a wider range of experience compared with their salaried counterparts, whose value typically lies in their ability to specialize in a particular discipline.
Freelancers are continually learning and maintaining a broad knowledge base. This experience is incredibly valuable to clients, as they can benefit from a freelance engineering and design team’s fresh and innovative perspective.
Hiring Professionals Dedicated to Your Ideas
According to recent studies, 97% of people who freelance are satisfied with the independent style of work. The high degree of control that freelancing offers, along with the potential for a healthy work/life balance, is attractive to many college-educated engineers and CAD designers.
When you hire professional freelancers, you’re hiring extremely competent people who care about your project and are dedicated to working with you!
