Let’s be crystal clear upfront: there is no charge for freelancers using our service. To fund our time, investment and commitment to developing The Indie List so that it serves the freelance, agency and client communities, we charge a service fee for our work.

We charge an initial search fee of €250 (ex. VAT) to cover some of our time involved in assessing and sourcing a range of suitable candidates to match your requirements. If we don’t find anyone, then we don’t charge. It’s as simple as that.

If you decide to go ahead with one of our Indie Listers, then we charge a mark-up of 15% on their agreed fee for their work with you. We look after all the billing and payment, but our people need to be paid within 14 days of the final invoice – like you, they have their bills to pay!

Recruitment for longer-term or permanent roles is charged based on a pre-agreed percentage of the candidate’s starting salary. Please contact us if you need clarity on any aspect of our pricing.
