THE 5 GUIDING PRINCIPLES

FAIR PAY

Includes recognition of all the work undertaken - including planning, travel etc

Also the level of experience

of the Freelancer.

Agreeing pay-scales with Freelancers.

INCLUSION

Supporting diversity - referencing current best practice & language. Continuously re-examining & questioning internal structures & the culture within organisations to ensure inclusivity is the norm.

REPRESENTATION

Ensuring that Freelancers are represented in any decision making that affects Freelancers - borrowing the phrase:

'Nothing about us  

without us'. 

TRANSPARENCY

1. When contracting: what does a job entail and what is the budget?

Clarity from the outset. 

2.  Recording & publishing data around Freelancers contracted, & sharing examples of best practice.

SUSTAINABILITY

Exploring ways to support Freelancers throughout whole careers - Recognising that Freelancing

is by its 

nature precarious & support is needed to keep people in the profession.
