Freelancers deliver work on a contract basis for companies and organisations often via their own limited company.
We come in all shapes and sizes and from different industries. We may be called consultants, temps, interims, locums, supply or freelancer but the key point is we run our own business.
Have you done it before or are you a first timer? Is it right for you? Let's find out.

6prog tools guide

​6prog provides you with a shareable Profile, proposals generator and more. For example: we will work with you to produce a case study to advertise your skills. We are increasingly defining work on an output basis which makes flexibility more attractive than employer-employee models.
An 'output based' contract is an agreement between a customer and a supplier, which creates a relationship for the delivery of services or products. The driving force behind the contract is that it focuses on what the deliverables are in business terms rather than how they should be delivered.

​What is IR35?

Off Payroll

​IR35 is shorthand for the UK tax legislation that is designed to identify contractors and businesses who are avoiding paying the appropriate tax by working as 'disguised' employees; or, are engaging workers on a self-employed basis to 'disguise' their true employment status.
Interestingly Qdos Contractor's Status Review shows 87% of contracts assessed were deemed outside IR35.

​Why is a contract important?

Contract agreements

​Whether you’re delivering a simple logo design project or a two year change programme, you should have a contract for the work. Established freelancers will tell you that a formal agreement both eliminates frustrations [should the project not go well] and sets a tone for how a client works. 6prog makes this process easy by setting out the following in each contract:

  • Explanation of what the project is about
  • Give a deadline for the stages of the project’s completion
  • Inside scope? [list it] Outside scope? [list it too]
  • Explain how project will be broken down into milestones
  • Clear costs per deliverable
  • Easy updates and change requests

Helping CEO's with sleep challenges. COVID helped me to wake up to my bigger calling: to unlock the deeper-rooted nature of sleeplessness. After being approached by numerous business owners facing sleep challenges following lock-down, I decided that with my strong background in mental health and wellbeing that this was the ideal focus. My niche found me! My approach is to make light of dark situations. Not always, but enough to work out who needs it and who isn't ready yet. Looking on the bright side of life and Monty Python have been great teachers.
