As a Freelance Clinical consultant it’s my job to understand the benefits of being a Freelancer so that I can advise on why this is a good option for my candidates.
Key differences between permanent and freelance:
- Flexibility – working from home and choosing your own hours
- Huge financial benefit
- Running your own business
- Utilising your extensive experience in specific areas
So how do you become a Freelancer? This usually comes after years of experience within your field and building up a strong skill set within your area.
Take a Freelance CRA specialising in Phase I with 10+ years’ experience for example – this particular profile is extremely useful to a Sponsor or CRO performing a Phase I study. You will be an asset in the success of their trial over a period of time (usually 6-12 months) ensuring the project is successful.
Freelancers in the clinical market are not only used for their job title, they have a wealth of experience behind them allowing them to not only perform their duties but to advise the team in multiple situations.
From my experience I’ve seen this a lot during rescue missions; I work with many CRO’s that specialise in taking over failing studies, and this is a prime example of when the freelance model works best. The study is already under performing and needs to be whipped back into shape, so a Freelance CRA or Freelance CPM specialising in rescue missions is the BEST option.
You will have faith in their abilities and understand with their track record they are the people to make success out of an under performing project.
So, is the Freelance option the best one for you? This depends on your motivations, what enjoy doing and your desire to be a specialist in your area – if this is you then take a look and find out more!
