About us

Ten years ago (it seems like only yesterday) we were simply a small group of experienced yet rather frustrated creative recruiters about to launch a brand new business. RedSofa. We were determined to show the world we could do a better job than the competition: and have fun at the same time.

Our philosophy was very simple only hire the very best and watch them and the business flourish. By 2014 we were proud to be acclaimed Europe's fastest growing and most respected Creative Recruitment Agency. A year later we opened our Berlin office.

Of course there are other elements to our success, passion, creativity and building long-term personal relationships, but working with the very best people will always be at the core of our being.

We now cover almost every area in our sector, ranging from junior art workers to global CEOs. Our expertise in every area is widely regarded as being unequalled. IMPRINT

FREELANCE VS PERM: WHICH IS BETTER FOR YOU?

Steve Buss 14th September 2022

Deciding where you want to take your career can be difficult as it is, but knowing if you want to go perm or freelance can make it slightly easier for you….and for us!

I have spoken to lots of candidates at all different stages in their career and I have had the conversation of perm vs freelance a lot. But the first thing you have to know is…what is going to work best for you? Not just now but in the future as well.

What is a freelancer? Freelancers tend to work on projects and/or contracts, this can be from irregular hours (a couple hours here or there per day), shorter freelance roles which can be anything from 1 day to 2 weeks, or longer freelance roles/contracts which can be from 3 months to a year.. or more! Most freelance contracts can be terminated at short notice and you only get paid for the hours worked.

 

Pros of being a freelancer:

– You have the flexibility to work when you want and from where you want.

-You can get paid higher than someone in a perm position as it goes by a day rate

-You get to work with a variety of people and companies

-Your portfolio will be growing constantly and be super varied.

-You can be your own boss.

 

Cons of being a freelancer :

-Risk of not having any work

-Not knowing when your next role will be

-Freelancers don’t receive any employee benefits such as sick and holiday pay.

-You can feel quite isolated as usually you would be working independently and not in a social setting.

-Responsible for sorting your own taxes.

 

On the flip side if you are a perm employee, you will be able to grow in your career with the support of a team and company behind you. You will be on a yearly salary, receive employee benefits and know your exact working hours and set up.

  Pros of being in a perm role:

-You are on a salary, you know what you will be getting each month.

-Personal development and training programmes

-You have job security

-Employee benefits such as holiday pay, pension, sick pay, paid notice period etc.

– Social outings

 

Cons of being in a perm role:

-Potential limited earning potential

-Can have a lack of creativity

-Lack of flexibility

-Potential lack of progression within your role.

 

After the pandemic both perm and freelance roles have changed, generally there is now more flexibility and work life balance. Always remember every job, company, work type has its pros and cons but it is deciding what works best for you and your life and what you will feel most confident in.
