We know that your work life is multidimensional — that’s why you can use our marketplace as a freelancer, an agency, and a client. You will use the same account to log in to Upwork but will have separate user profiles. You will be able to easily switch between them as needed.

If you're a freelancer or agency manager now, but would like to set up a client account so you can hire others:

  1. Go to Settings > Contact Info and scroll down to Additional accounts.
  2. Choose New Client Account.
  3. Once set up, use the account menu at the top-right of your screen to switch between using Upwork as a client, freelancer, or agency.

If you're a client now, but would like to do work as a freelancer or agency:

  1. Go to SettingsMy Info.
  2. Click the Create New Account link at the bottom.
  3. Select New Freelancer Account.
  4. Once set up, use the account menu at the top-right of your screen to switch between using Upwork as a client, freelancer, or agency.
