Freelancers Internationale Samenwerking (FRIS) is van alle markten thuis

FRIS, een collectief van freelancers in ontwikkelingssamenwerking en sociaal ondernemen, bestaat bijna twee jaar. We werken als freelance schrijvers, onderzoekers, trainers en adviseurs voor een breed scala aan organisaties en initiatieven. Zelf  constateren we dat het werken in teams meer kwaliteit en meer werkplezier oplevert. Maar hoe denken onze opdrachtgevers  – die meer en meer met freelancers werken – daar eigenlijk over? En hoe kunnen we ons aanbod nog beter afstemmen op hun vraag?

In 2016 verandert er veel in de Nederlandse ontwikkelingssamenwerking-sector. Grote NGO’s moeten het doen met een kleiner budget (van het Miniserie van Buitenlandse Zaken). Sommige kleinere organisaties hebben het zelfs niet gered. Anderen hebben bijna al hun werk verplaats naar de landen waar ze werken. Deze ontwikkelingen zorgen er ook voor dat veel NGO-personeel op zoek moet naar een nieuwe baan. Sommigen kiezen ervoor om de markt te verkennen als freelancer.

Dit is voor FRIS Collectief hét moment om te kijken wat de toekomst is voor freelancers binnen ontwikkelingssamenwerking. We vroegen daarom onze opdrachtgevers, voornamelijk grote en middelgrote ontwikkelingsorganisaties, wat voor hen de voordelen zijn van het werken met freelancers of hoe dit nog beter zou kunnen.

It involves crowdfunding or starting income-generating activities, as well as developing business models that are both impact-driven and financially sustainable.
