You will begin to notice that more companies are opting to use freelances over hiring someone for the job. But why is this?
One of the main reasons for why freelancer are being used is because it saves companies money. When using a freelancer, you are only paying for what you need. Therefore there is not a set wage needing to be paid.
Following on from this, hiring a freelance when you need work is much easier than hiring someone permanently. It takes time to find a single person who will fit in with your business. However, with freelancers if you only need them for so much work they will not be a main aspect of your company.
Finally, hiring freelancers allows you more freedom. You are able to explore a range of people, but if you find someone who works you can stick with them. Allowing you to gain work from a range of people for a small cost.
