Ask DN: Looking for advice on working remotely & part time for the first time

7 years ago from , Digital Designer

I'm currently exploring the idea of working a set number of hours a week for some new clients and cutting back the hours I work with my current job. I'd essentially like to split my hours 20/20 with my current job and another with a new role working from home for another company with a short - medium length contract.

My questions to DN is for people who have experience with these kinds of situations:

  1. What do you look for in a company that you choose to work remotely with?
  2. What terms do you look to agree in your contract?
  3. How do you work out your rates and do they vary from working freelance projects/full time work in house?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated :)
