Create and sell your own product: How to work with Outworkers

Light bulb
Outworkers are usually self employed and often work on a ‘piecework’ basis, where you pay them for each item they make, or by the hour. You need to have a contract with each outworker, and provide clear information about the standards you expect. Outworkers are usually self employed. Set up a simple form for them to complete stating how many items they have made. Then get them to invoice you for the amount you owe them. You inspect their work and then pay. You can supply work to the outworkers as and when you have it. They can be a valuable way to extend your capacity if you have a seasonal business. The National Group on Homeworking has resources and example terms and conditions for outworkers.
