Why should you engage for your project independent EU affairs consultants and lawyers? The answer is simple: “because it is both cost effective and result effective.” Sourcing for short-term projects is expensive, time-consuming and poorly served.
Independent EU affairs consultants and lawyers can add highly skilled value in an effective way whenever organisations need it and wherever they need it. They accomplish single or regular activities that do not require the burdensome weights related to full time employment.
The other unique selling points can be summarised as follows:
Value for Expertise: Independent consultants and lawyers offer specialized skills and knowledge highly targeted for a particular activity like a short term public affairs campaign or management of a EU funded project. Such skills on the long term are either expensive to maintain or simply non-existent within the client organisation;
Value for Money: independent consultants and lawyers are typically engaged on a project basis with a clear fees structure without bonuses and pay raises required. This is particular well suited for national clients having a defined budget and task to be accomplished at the EU level on a short to medium term time span;
Value for Time: independent consultants and lawyers work on flexible schedule and at their own rhythm (including weekends and summer/winter holiday times when usually employees do not work) according to the client’s pace and progress in the specific activities they have been contracted for. They are faster to hire than from a HR department or headhunter and they do not represent a long term commitment for the client organisation. They can start a project within days.
Our commitment to freelancing distinguishes us from our competitors. At Euro Freelancers we have developed a unique value proposition, which is further elaborated below:
Fully integrated expertise in EU advocacy, EU funding and private investments
We do advocacy as a means to raise funds and work on EU funding as a means to do advocacy. We also act as a private investors to scale up the innovation potential of some of our clients with demonstrated high-level growth that require equity capital for business exploitation plans.
Promoting freelancing as a flexible work arrangement in collaborative environments
We believe distributed talent models are the future. Experts estimate that up to 55% of the workforce in the EU will consist of non-employees within 10 years. This can be for the implementation of EU funded projects or short to medium term advocacy activities such as a targeted public affairs campaign.
We are not simply EU consultants and lawyers
We tap into the combined knowledge of our pan European network of multi-disciplinary independent experts on a project basis, ensuring you get the right talent for your specific challenges from a variety of fields. We are more than simple EU consultants and lawyers, each of us considers himself/herself a thriving micro-entrepreneur.
We are not a traditional agency
Each of us 35 independent consultants and lawyers has a portfolio of at least 10 clients each, that makes 350-500 clients and partner organisations for the benefit of the entire network. Our outreach and multiplier potential is therefore larger than a traditional mid-size EU affairs agency that usually handles an average of 10-15 clients with the same consultants working on several dossiers. Unlike a traditional agency, none of our consultants are “told” to work on specific projects by a more senior manager or the hierarchy.
