I feel an opportunity was missed by not referring to recruitment agencies that specialise in freelance staff in the Design Week league tables last week (DW 6 October).
The survey overlooked one of our industry’s most valuable resources, at a time when good permanent staff are thin on the ground.
For The Team, managing rapid growth relies on the flexibility of contracting freelance staff at all levels and disciplines. We therefore ensure our process of selection and the emphasis on quality and cultural fit is equal to the efforts we put into employing permanent people.
Think this way and it is often the last freelance who becomes the next valued full- time member of staff.
