I’m freelance FT in life sciences consulting. It is difficult to rely on firms like Genioo for business as the frequency of projects isn’t enough. Over 5 years with Business Talent Group, I’ve been strongly considered for just a handful of projects and only 1 client opportunity panned out. That said, I sold in follow-on projects for a year afterwards.

A-connect and Veritux/Umbrex also have LS projects, but there are a bunch of these firms. Here’s a list pasted from an article:
Eden McCallum, GLG Strategic Projects, UpWork, Catalant, TalMix, PeoplePerHour, 10eqs, Business Talent Group, genioo, High Point Associates, a-connect, ex-consultants agency, expert360, mindbench, Consultants 500, localsolo, Sparehire, flexy, PwC talent exchange, comatch, Barton Partnership, LinkedIn ProFinder, Deloitte Open Talent Network, BBEcosystem, expertPowerhouse

It is best to have an anchor client of your own and then opportunistically supplement with projects via these middlemen as they appear.

I’m registered with Genioo but don’t have direct experience working with them.


Curious too - what can comp look like if you are a FT freelancer?

I know a couple Accenture SMs who went here in Zurich. They seem to enjoy it as they have stayed for a while now.

I had never heard of them, but they pinged me on LinkedIn. I actually liked talking to them, but the timing didn’t work because I’d already accepted another offer.

I’ve worked freelance for them in the past. Good people.

No, I was an Independent consultant and they reached out to me. Timing worked out perfectly. Based in the US I worked in Munich for them. Traveled back and forth every 10 days for 2 years. It was a great project.

So, I started a job in lockdown. During that time I spoke to management about BLM and racism in the industry. I’m POC. They were open and positive about it. Last week my CD said that though he’s really happy with my work, I‘ll be let go after my trial period because the agency is not doing well financially. Which is true. But I also notice that after I’m gone, the creative dept will be only white and mostly male. Not intentional...right? (interns are gone too, one being the only Black creative)
