Why are OzLance freelancers better value?

OzLance allows for “whole job” quoting only. This protects employers by establishing a set budget and encouraging the speediest completion of a job. It protects freelancers by having a fixed price in advance, allowing for scheduled progress payments. It is recommended that a work schedule be established and adhered to, and progress payments be made promptly.

Choosing the right bid

Choosing a freelancer is the most affordable way to get your job done, because not only do you incur the lowest direct costs but your freelancer has fewer overheads to pass on, too.
Hiring a freelancer is all about getting outstanding value for money, but hiring the cheapest freelancer could be a big mistake. When selecting a candidate, look for the right balance between bid price and skills. Make sure you check their references, qualifications and portfolio before deciding. Selecting the cheapest option may result in a poorer standard of work, when for a few dollars more, you could enjoy spectacular results.

What is the Market Wage for my job?

It's difficult to define what a job is worth as every job requires a different skill set and different experience. As a rough guide however, this Market Data can help you to understand the minimum you can expect to pay for.

52 weeks per year – 9 for holidays, sick leave and long service = 43 weeks work

Average working week is 38 hours

Minimum Quote = (Market Salary / 43) / 38 x Estimated hours in the Job
