We then invite them to review your listing and only apply if they feel they can deliver high quality work that meets your expectations. You can then review applications, work samples, qualifications, references and quotes and choose the best freelancer for your job.
OzLance was established in 2006 in response to growing frustration among local clients. Poor quality workmanship, poor communication skills and a poor understanding of Australia’s culture was earning the industry a bad name. OzLance was established to provide Australian businesses with talented, local freelancers at a reasonable cost. Today OzLance provides clients with a better option, saving them countless dollars without compromising quality and business reputation.
OzLance is what happens when freelancing is done right. From humble beginnings as a poorly paid, self-taught, whiz kid freelance designer and programmer, to building a business based on an in depth understanding of the freelance industry, Sam Georges is a key figure in the Australian Freelancing Industry.
As a freelancer, Sam grew tired of correcting shoddy workmanship while losing local contracts to the very same workers. He believed that establishing a community of reputable, local, like-minded workers would give clients a better option and give freelancers better working conditions. He made the leap from freelancer to online entrepreneur and OzLance was born. The community is always growing and Sam is continuing to use innovation and insight to improve the standards of the Australian freelance industry, after all, it’s the future of Australian business.
