The current woes of the charity sector have been well documented. Huge shortfalls in funding, cost reductions, redundancies… Yet there has never been a greater need for these vital services.
So, what is the future, what can be done? The show must go on.
We think part of the answer lies in charity freelancing. How does this work?
- Rather than employ people directly on a full time permanent basis, freelancers are contracted on a temporary basis.
- This is for a fixed period of time and for a set amount of hours and days.
- The contract is via Worldy People, who have great expertise over many years in working with clients in this way
- Worldy People manage the freelancers and add value to support them through the process with innovative ideas
- Charity to pay Worldy People for services on an agreed basis
- Worldy People to replace freelancers quickly and efficiently if required with others with different experiences
- Full GDPR and other compliances, confirmed contractually
- Potential freelancers to be interviewed directly by charity in the normal way
What are the advantages for charities?
- Risk mitigation as no need to employ people directly with a heavy monthly wage bill
- Cost reduction as no employment and NI taxes
- Ability to tap into a wealth of expertise for a short time basis
- Great flexibility to ramp up and down quickly
- Value added by Worldy People and their team of consultants in supporting freelancers
- Remain in control and you can choose your staff, who work for you like an employee using your email address etc
- Use of new types of personnel, including sales staff used to working in different industries and to strong targets
Charities still need people who can raise funds to enhance their services. There are some great people on the market who can make a real difference on a short term flexible basis. Worldy People are the company that can make this happen.
