As a freelancer I love working on interesting projects that I consciously pick based on my interests, my preferred working mode and availability. However it is not easy to acquire cool projects. I don't like all the admin stuff around my project work incl. acquisition and invoicing. consultingheads helps me focus on the things I do best: helping a client solve a problem.

    In order to understand what jobs you are looking for, we will then ask questions about your expertise (e.g. industry, function) and preferences (e.g. salary, location). Afterwards, you can choose to upload your CV.

  • What is our "Skill Match"?

    The Skill Match is our indicator of how good a certain job fits your skills. A high score indicates that you are likely to master the challenges of the job. Decisive factors here are, for example, language, industry, function and professional experience.

  • How do I win a project?

    You will receive a personal message once we find relevant projects that match your expertise. You can also see an overview of all relevant projects in the dashboard. If you find an interesting project, feel free to apply. The tendering company will let you know of their decision once they have reviewed your documents.

  • How much can I earn and how do payments work?

    You are free to set your day rate for each project. We will communicate this day rate to the tendering which will set up contract for consulting services directly with you. Once a contract for consulting services is reached between you and the tendering company, payments will be made directly to you by the tendering company. We are happy to support you should you encounter any issues.

  • What happens after project work?

    The company will give you a full review for your consulting services. This will be added to your profile to help you build your brand and secure further projects. The company might choose to offer you a full-time position based on your work.
