If your job is private or you haven’t received the right proposal, there are three ways to find freelancers to fill your Enterprise job. You could choose to invite a freelancer from:
- Your Talent Cloud® network
- The general Upwork marketplace
- Your relationships outside Upwork
These freelancers typically have been preselected or previously engaged by your company. They generally have already gone through initial vetting, which can make for faster and easier hiring (or rehiring). Go to Freelancers > Find Freelancers and do a search. You can restrict the results (using the first filter box) to one or more of your company’s Talent Clouds. When you find someone you want, click the Invite to Job button.
If you don’t already have the right skillset in your Talent Cloud network, you are welcome to search the marketplace as a whole, just like any other client. Go to Freelancers > Find Freelancers and do a search. When you find someone you want, click the Invite to Job button. Remember that these freelancers have not gone through your company’s onboarding process. That may take some time before they can get started (and they may not be able, or want, to complete it).
Bring Your Own (BYO)
If you know who you want to engage, but they’re not already on Upwork, you can send a BYO offer via this request form. When they accept, they will be prompted to set up a basic Upwork profile and complete your company’s onboarding process (if applicable), before accepting their contract.
