“Because of Úna's & Peter's in-depth experience of the marketing world, they immediately understood my requirements and could pinpoint the skills and people that would be right for the project. Plus the freelancers/consultants that we worked with on the project were fantastic - super flexible and completely professional. It’s now my go-to for any short term projects.”

Olive FogartyMarketing Consultant, The Skin Nerd

“I joined the Indie List very shortly after its inception, and have benefited from the very start. Within a couple of weeks, I had the offer of a copywriting gig for a national financial institution and then came an expression of interest in assisting in the editorial of a quarterly magazine. The professionalism of Peter and Úna has been second-to-none, and their comradeship much appreciated in a year when it was sorely needed.”

We reached out to The Indie List and within a matter of 24 hours they introduced us to the best possible candidate. We have not looked back.”

“The team and the Indie List matched our needs exactly. We wanted an experienced digital marketeer and knew a freelancer with agency experience was a good option for us. The calibre of CVs sent was outstanding and this was backed up by actual industry references. I can see us using the Indie List for busy periods and high profile projects well into the future.”

“Apart from allowing us at UM Ireland bring opportunities to people outside of our own company, The Indie List enabled us to tap in different skillsets which we were missing. I have to say the quality of talent within The Indie List was of the highest level and the quality to work delivered was phenomenal. "

“I've found both Peter & Úna a pleasure to work with. A deadly duo of forward thinkers accelerating the growth and highlighting the need for freelancers in today's industry. They are extremely efficient and their professional attitude and knowledge of the industry is second to none. I have successfully secured numerous contracts from the Indie List and would highly recommend other freelancers to sign up today. Think of the Indie List as an extension to your team! A must have!”

Úna and Peter are highly professional and add serious value. The Indie List is exactly what clients need right now and the disruptor that the communications industry needs.”

And the Indie List has been a vital part of my survival through the worst business climate I have yet experienced in my long career.”

“We have a thriving freelance community here in Ireland and I think the idea of gathering together and publicising this creative talent is simple but inspired. I’ve found it brilliant as a way of expanding my own network and I’ve already had repeat business from clients that I wouldn’t have met otherwise.”
