Working with a client

It's different depending on whether the job was a direct or middleman job, of course.

Direct jobs

Once you and the client decide to work together, our job is (mostly) done. We are always available if problems should arise, but apart from that everything happens directly between you and the client from then on.

Contract

The contract is signed between you and the client directly. Please make sure it is legally solid and, if you are unsure, prefer a Dienstvertrag to a Werkvertrag. If the client asks you for a contract, feel free to use our template for a Dienstvertrag.

Invoices

You issue your invoices for your work directly to the client as well. Please forward each invoice to us (preferable in the corresponding Slack channel) as soon as you sent it to the client, so we can send you an invoice back for our commission.

Middleman jobs

The manner of working together is quite different when it comes to middleman jobs.

Contract

You will sign a contract with the recruiter which details the arrangement of working together. In rare cases, the recruiter will ask you to sign a contract with the end customer instead.

Invoices

You will most likely submit a timesheet at the end of each month, and the recruiter will pay you the previously agreed upon hourly/daily rate once the timesheet has been confirmed by the end customer.

You do not need to forward the invoice to us, since no commission has to be paid for middleman jobs.
