New Helpmehireme Website Launches to Help British Freelancers to Get Business in the UK
The UK’s growing army of freelancers will receive a helping hand from this week as a brand new website launches to help boost business with no commission charges and a promise to promote home grown talent.
Helpmehireme.co.uk is based on pledge to “Help Rebuild British Business”. The site acts as a commission free market place where UK based freelancers can link up with British businesses who want to find a quick solution to a pressing business need. Projects are varied with large ongoing jobs sitting side by side with simple one-hour tasks for quick cash that makes use of existing skill sets. The site is unique in that, unlike some other websites, it is UK specific, and charges no commissions for any work secured through the service.
Founder Tony Betts said, “British skills are being drowned out by third world countries offering to do work at a fraction of the cost, but that’s not the whole story. We have spoken to many businesses who initially opted for the cheaper offer, but soon found that either the work could not be completed or was so badly done that it had to be scrapped and then started from scratch.”
Dealing directly with UK based experts in their field means that businesses with jobs in fields such as marketing, PR and data entry can outsource to experienced British freelancers, removing the hassle sometimes associated with dealing with non-native speakers, on different time zones and no understanding of the British way of thinking and doing things.
For the freelancers, there is the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are competing on a level playing field plus they do not pay any commission on work completed through the site.
Helpmehireme.co.uk is open for registration from any UK based freelancer, with a one off membership charge of £20 securing unrestricted access for the year. Once registered, freelancers can upload a portfolio to showcase their skills and browse new jobs as soon as they are published on site.
It is free for businesses to advertise a job and there is no limit on the number of jobs that can be posted. A rating system for freelancers, based on previous employers on the site, will help buyers to choose the right person for the job.
As an introductory offer, helpmehireme is offering a 50% discount for the first 1000 Freelancers to register.
