What is Freelance Alliance?
Freelance Alliance is the UK network for media and creative freelancers based in the UK. It is a unique sales platform where companies, agencies and indeed other freelancers, can search for freelance workers.
If you’re looking for a helping hand, it is completely free to search the network and post freelance jobs on our noticeboard.
Members’ profiles list their skills and summary of what they offer, link to a CV, showcase portfolio images and link to other collaborating members to offer the resulting complementary strengths to clients hiring. A couple of minutes searching could therefore provide a ready-made team of copywriter, photographer and designer, for instance, for your project.

How does it work?
Freelance Alliance is the network for UK based media and creative freelancers. Use the above search fields to source the talent you need for your project. Members can form alliances with each other in order to offer you complementary skillsets – any partnerships will be shown on their profiles.
It’s free to search and hire and currently free to advertise your jobs on our noticeboard, please fill out a job description here to include it on our board. Whilst we promote and encourage honesty and fair dealings amongst our members, Freelance UK cannot vouch for Freelance Alliance members or be held liable for the services advertised by freelancers registered on its website.
How does it work?
When you register we ask you for your business details, including your key skills, location, and client list, along with a summary of what you do. To provide you with a complete online presence you can upload up to 12 images to showcase your work.
Furthermore you can team up with co-workers to broaden what you offer to prospective clients; aside from working collaboratively, members can use the network to seek introductions to other members’ clients. As a member you do not divulge client contact details as part of your profile, it is entirely up to you if you decide to forward on a CV or business profile for a skillset you know your client is seeking. (Freelancers placing successful CVs on behalf of another member may then choose to negotiate a finder’s fees with their client contact, particularly if it’s a lengthy contract.)
Increase your value to clients
With the network at your fingertips, your value to clients should increase. You can now either offer the complementary strength of your skills teamed with another member's, or find freelancers on behalf of your client to work on an entirely separate project. Not forgetting, of course, finding freelancers for your own outsourcing needs.
What does it cost?
Just £5+VAT a month to increase your new business opportunities, network with other freelancers. Freelance Alliance is a subscription service. There is an initial minimum period of four months' membership for which we charge £20+VAT; thereafter £5+VAT will be collected each month or until you cancel. Members are in full control of their profiles and can cancel at any time.
The network is only open to media and creative freelancers based in the UK.
