Let’s be clear up front…

there is no charge

for freelancers using our service.

In order to fund our investment and commitment to developing The Indie List so that it creates value for both the freelance, agency and client communities we charge a 10% service fee on short-term freelance projects.

Recruitment for longer-term or permanent roles is charged based on a pre-agreed percentage of the candidates starting salary.
This is how the short-term project model works:


The 10% fee is charged on top of the freelancer’s bill (excl. VAT) and applies for all engagements with the freelancer in a 12 month period.


This fee will be billed separately by us to the client on completion of the project. (The freelancer will invoice their own costs.)


There is an initial engagement fee of €250 which allows you to access up to 2 freelancers in a 12 month period or €500 for access to up to 5 freelancers in a 12 month period. 


This will be payable immediately plus VAT on engagement with the candidate(s).



We expect the freelancer to let us know when the final project is finished, how much they are invoicing so that we can bill our final charge to the client.

Please contact us if you need clarity on any aspect of our pricing.
