Let’s start with the top trending question we get asked from new members of our community…
Depending on your experience and level, here’s a guide into what you can expect to earn as a Strategy freelancer:
The good news is we transparently share client budgets in every opportunity on our platform giving you visibility before you even consider a gig.
If you’re transitioning from a permanent role it is important you connect with Expert360’s Strategy Community Lead, Rachel Quick, during your resignation period so that our team can support your transition and start sourcing for available projects.

There are a number of reasons why a Strategy Consultant would decide to freelance
There is an insatiable appetite for Strategy Consultants which means the downtime between projects for our Consultants is minimal. Towards the end of your project, our team will follow up with you and understand what your ideal next project looks like.
Our team will also advise you on when it is best to start applying for your next project. You can also continually browse the platform and apply to projects.
Expert360 offers insurance coverage for our community of consultants at zero cost to our Experts. Head to our insurance page for more info on our partnership with CGU Insurance.
It is important that you know exactly what you’re covered for. This helps to speed up hiring time and avoid confusion due to last minute on-costs or the risk you’re not covered. Some clients require you to have insurance, and others do not so it’s always best to find out at the start of the project.
Unlike full-time employment, the onus of contributing amounts to a superannuation fund falls back onto the freelancer. Expert360 have partnered with Future Super and Grow Super to make superannuation easy to understand and navigate as an independent consultant.
