To improve our relationship and dialogue with you, our freelancers, we have created a simpler manual with concise, useful, and important information. Always alive, constantly updated.
Welcome to our comprehensive manual!
Of course, we sign an agreement: documentation that clearly describes and states the conditions and requirements of our partnership, and your assignment, to create both clarity and security. This includes rate, time, scope, work placement, notice period, etc.
Our freelancers agree to go through Trib for any further assignments with the client 12 months after their last completed project. The same applies to our clients.
Of course, the freelancer always has the right to perform assignments for other clients as well, unless those assignments affect the freelancer’s ability to fulfil their obligations to the existing client. However, the freelancer agrees not to take on assignments for companies that conduct activities that directly compete with the existing client during the contract period.
In the event that the freelancer’s commitment or other assignments may be questionable from a loyalty and interest perspective, the freelancer shall immediately inform Trib and the client of such circumstances before they accept a commitment or assignment.
The freelancer does not have the right to hire a sub-freelancer without first obtaining both Trib’s and the client’s approval. In this case, the sub-freelancer’s conditions towards the original freelancer must also be approved in writing by Trib and the client.
An assignment is often extended. Some things may then need to be adjusted contractually. Trib will, as your agent, have an ongoing dialogue with the client during the assignment and will negotiate any extensions for you. Of course, always in a fully transparent collaboration with you, the freelancer.
Most commonly, the freelancer is paid per hour and the assignment contract itself contains information about the number of hours planned per month (or for the entire period). Alternatively, there is the possibility of agreeing a fixed fee for a specific period or delivery. There are multiple options, as long as everyone agrees and expectations are clear.
When it comes to both fees and payment, clarity and transparency are paramount. All is negotiated in advance and outlined in common agreements (contracts). All payments are then made by Trib. A percentage surcharge is added by Trib, depending on the complexity, length and scope of the assignment.
The freelancer is entitled to compensation for verified expenses that have arisen within the framework of the execution of the assignment, provided that such expenses have been approved in advance in writing by the responsible manager at the client.
Unless otherwise agreed, 30 days payment applies.
The standard termination period between the client and the consultant is one month (for assignments longer than three months). A termination is activated by written notice to Trib.
We offer a referral program to a select group of our consultants, which allows them to increase their income by referring potential business opportunities or candidates for temporary or permanent needs.
Our referral program is designed to benefit both the consultant and our business, as we believe in mutually beneficial partnerships.
If the above sounds interesting, you can of course get in touch for further information. A voluntary thing, which does not suit everyone.
This might not be the most exciting part of your assignment, so let’s make it as smooth as possible. By using Toggl Time Tracking you can easily add your hours for the project and get a (PDF) report for the month. Send that report to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org with our joint contact person at the client on CC (unless otherwise agreed upon).
When your hours have been approved, send your invoice to email@example.com
Easy as pie!
The information of a confidential nature that the freelancer receives through the assignment will not further be used or disclosed. All intangible material produced during the assignment belongs to the client and is not allowed to be used in competing or other activities. In case of any uncertainty about what is confidential or not, the precautionary principle is recommended. Permission from Trib or the client must always be obtained.
If you have the opportunity to take on more consultancy assignments while you are working through Trib, make sure that you obtained approval from the client if it’s a competing business before signing up for the new gig.
To take on assignments via Trib, you need an active insurance policy. You are always directly responsible to the client, both when it comes to delivery and any other insurance matters. So, to have the right insurance in place is, to say the least, extra important.
Regardless of the type of the freelancer’s company, the person conducting business is obliged to be registered with the Swedish Tax Agency. A registration documentation must always be available as proof of this.
All personal information at TRIB is handled in accordance with GDPR. Personal data linked to this specific assignment is saved for a maximum of twelve months. The client shall have their own procedures that handle the regulations concerning GDPR and freelancers who are treated within the framework of every assignment.
Our philosophy is clear – helping our network of freelancers make their gigs as simple as possible. And then primarily to find fun and evolving projects for them to work on. But our ambition is actually much greater than that.
As a freelancer, you may also need assistance with billing, financial advice, accounting, or even marketing. Through our vast network of specialists, we can offer all of the above, under one roof.
But we can also temporarily offer meeting rooms, printers, or a cup of coffee when you are out of beans.
So please, tell us about your specific needs, and we will try to fulfil them in the best possible way.
To maintain good quality in our deliveries, we have experienced Talent Agents assigned to every project and our freelancers get unlimited access to at least one of them. All of Trib’s Talent Agents bring individual experiences, a proven track record, and in-depth understanding of the industries we work with.
If you feel overwhelmed, please let your agent know. We are there for you – in all circumstances.
Transparency is the warmest colour and the core of Trib’s business. But also kindness, accessibility, and support. If you are happy, we are happy.
Trib arranges meetups and aims to facilitate simple companionship with other creative souls. We want to keep you inspired, and perhaps even some collaborations can happen! If you want to suggest an event or have a great idea of what you would like to see, hear, or go to – let us know.
