Working with Freelancers

Understand the responsibilities and distinctions of working with freelancers in this 90-minute training session.

Closing date: 21 Mar 2022

Freelancers, or self-employed contractors, are an important part of the cultural sector. It’s important for any organisation to properly understand the responsibilities and distinctions of working with freelancers. Getting this wrong puts your business at risk and may perpetuate poor practices.

This session works to help employers understand what constitutes sound practices for working with freelancers, including:

  • Understanding freelancing, and why it matters: the risks to your business, and what individuals may be missing out on if you get this wrong
  • What defines freelancing
  • What freelancers are responsible for
  • What the hiring business is responsible for
  • How to distinguish between freelancing and fixed-term employment

This session is part of our series of Fair Access Sector Support training which has been tailored specifically for Scotland’s cultural sector, funded by Creative Scotland. It’s designed for anyone that works with freelancers and is accompanied by a guide to Working with the Self-Employed.

Duration: 90 minutes (including breaks)
