Should You Hire Freelance or Permanent Staff?


LAST UPDATED: April 7, 2023

Deciding whether you need to hire a permanent employee or a freelancer can be difficult. There are benefits to both depending on your team’s structure, workflow and budget. You should always consider all factors and work on a case by case basis to ensure you make the right choice. If your workflow is erratic and you are happy for your staff costs to fluctuate throughout the year then a freelancer might make the most sense. However if you are consistently busy, need your employees to be fully immersed in your brand and to be available as soon as a project comes in then hiring perm is the way to go.
