Key benefits of freelancing with Dazzle

Work with pre-screened clients

As selective as we are with our freelancers, we also want to work with clients who have the right motivations, and fit our way of work.

Set your own preferences

You became a freelancer to be able to have autonomy over your work. Dazzle only aims to amplify that, which is why we’ll consider your preferences in matching you with clients. 

No commercial efforts needed

Dazzle enables you to focus on what you do best: make companies more sustainable. That’s why we take care of the marketing and sales efforts. 

Match based on your skills

Work on projects that make sense given your experience and skills. Our matchmaking system ensures that you work with clients who need you.

Build your skills

Our research has shown that the vast majority of freelancers are making an effort to upskill themselves in the field of sustainability, we’ll make sure you get to put them into practice. 

Collaborate with other freelancers

Freelancing can be lonely at times, and because we think there are inevitable synergies in collaboration, Dazzle offers the unique opportunity to work with peers on selected projects. 


Freelancing with Dazzle

Wat makes Dazzle different?

  • Step 1 - APPLY

    Apply to become a Dazzle freelancer by completing our application form, which contains a self assessment of some of the key topics within sustainability. 


  • Step 2 - ASSESS

    Upon reviewing your application, we will decide whether we can take the next step. If so, you will be invited to prepare a brief case study. We have a half-algorithmic, half-human approach to matchmaking. The purpose of the case study call is to understand how you approach client work, and which specific skillset you would bring to the community. 


  • Step 3 - INVENTORISE

    If the case study goes well, and you score high enough on our 10-point rating system, you will officially be invited to the Dazzle Community. The final onboarding step is to complete the in-depth skills inventory which feeds our matchmaking algorithm. 


  • Step 4 - JOIN

    Join the online Slack community to connect, collaborate and learn. We share resources, give regular updates and host community calls to keep you informed and involve you in growing Dazzle.


  • Step 5 - MATCH

    Dazzle will scope out the project as well as we can, and contact you when we have a potential match. When the match is verified we will arrange for a meet & greet with the client to offer tailored support. 


Frequently Asked Questions

There are many different ‘qualifications’ we look at. Hard skills, soft skills, experience, proven expertise, and lastly your education.

The average years of experience in our freelancers is 11 years. However, this doesn’t disqualify junior freelancers from joining our community. Some clients have more limited budgets and looking for support with more operational work, or you can be part of a Dazzle Freelance Team too. Overall, we always aim to meet client needs and follow our vetting system to identify truly top-tier freelancers.

These are our vetting criteria:
    • Time management
    • Proactivity
    • Project management
    • English Proficiency
    • Knowledge (topical expertise)
    • Relationship management
    • Business acumen
    • Consulting skills
    • Critical thinking
    • Communication skills

We promote diversity of ethnicity, background, and experience in our network. Currently, we have a community of 100+ vetted sustainability freelancers. We aim to provide work for as many of our freelancers as we can. That means that we’re only proceeding with applications that fill skill gaps within our current community.

You’re matched based on your expertise, experience, and preferences combined with the criteria the client provides us with. Our algorithm tells us which freelancers are technically capable of supporting the project, which is combined with our human approach to ensure the best possible matches.

Our services are two-fold. Dazzle provides services for both organizations and our freelancers. For the organizations, we curated an exclusive community of vetted, top-tier sustainability freelancers. For our freelancer community, we provide projects, ready the work on.

Our two-service business model is also reflected in our business model. The majority of our services are for the freelancers in our community. This is why we charge the freelancers a fixed % of the project fee that we acquire for them through our marketing and sales efforts. Our freelancers cover most of our margin. Towards organizations, we charge an additional small project fee for the effort that goes into curating the freelancers, and our vetting process.

As a freelancer, you determine your own hourly rate. For projects that you receive through the Dazzle community, we request a fixed matchmaking fee (%) for the work we put into acquiring the projects.

Freelancing comes with the freedom to set your own hours. If we have a potential match, we will reach out to confirm your availability. There is no need to be available for a certain number of hours.

We are on the same team during active projects and we are your administrative partner. This means Dazzle will ensure that invoices are paid on time and in full to allow for a smooth collaboration.

Additionally, if you are on a project and you are missing certain expertise, we can add another one of our freelancers to the project so you can continue working with the necessary support.

In conclusion, we have in any case an open communication line with our freelancers.

Dazzle is the invoicing partner between organizations and freelancers. We invoice the companies and ask you to invoice us minus the Dazzle matchmaking fee. The invoicing schedule is determined on a case-by-case basis.
