Who is That Works For Me?
We are people like you. Parents, business owners and freelancers. We are a new business with honest intentions born out of a true need and we are made up of lots of bits of brilliant people, which is how we believe business works best. No one is full time. And no one does 9 to 5! Read more about us here and if you think you can bring something special to our small and might team, let Jessica know [email protected].
How do I sign up to TWFM?
What jobs will you have on your site?
Flexible, professional ones! Roles. Projects. Employed. Freelance. Term time. Temporary. Permanent. Part time. Full time. Onsite. From home. They just have to be flexible, which means not in an office from 9 ’til 5, Monday to Friday.
How do I upgrade?
Log in to your profile and from your account, click on benefits, then click Upgrade.
How much does it cost?
We think the cost of most job posts are crazy expensive. Great if you’re a large corporate with deep pockets but not so great if you are a small business who needs help with their logo, or you need an accountant for just two days a month. That’s why our pricing is low and proportionate. If you’re a start up, you can post a role for free. If you’re more established, our introductory pricing starts from £30 a month. Searching for work is free. There is a small fee for our Freelancer plan because you have access to lots more of our benefits like coaching, training, discounted insurance, our accounting assistant (which includes invoicing), and legal and business checklists.

Why do I need to fill in my BACS or Paypal details?
We securely store your bank details or PayPal email for invoicing purposes. If you are looking for work, this is how you will be paid for the work you do. As a business or recruiter, we securely store your details to make it easy to pay someone once the work they have completed. No payments are taken without you taking action. And entering your payment details are not mandatory. You can add them at a later date if you prefer.
I keep losing my information when I complete my details, why is this?
We are a new site and as with any new site, sometimes things don’t work perfectly from day one. If you are looking for work, your profile will save as you complete each section. If you are a business, you must complete your business page in full before it will save. If you want to spend some time on it we suggest you enter some dummy data then re-visit the page later.
How do I cancel my upgrade and when will my payments stop?
Were sorry you want to leave us, but we understand that circumstances change. We would like to know why though as what you have to say is everything to us. Contact us directly and we can arrange this for you. Your subscription will end within 28 days of you giving us notice.
