A solid third of projects fail without the oversight of senior leadership positions, such as project management.

Your company may not need a full-time project manager, so why not consider a freelance hire?

There are a number of qualified individuals who can meet your needs as a freelance project manager.

A few factors, such as hiring costs and the details which go into finding and hiring a qualified individual, are explained for you below. Read our guide to understand the complete process.

How to Hire a Freelance Project Manager

Before your company is ready to act on a freelance hire for project management, you need to understand what the position can do to increase a team’s productivity. Fortunately, the responsibilities of someone for this position are largely determined by the needs of the project itself.

What Is a Freelance Project Manager?

Project managers work on the daily management of a project, which encompasses a few details. Project management, especially for freelance hire, should have outcomes defined by time and budget. 

Typically, a freelance project manager has to consider six major aspects of a project, including:

  1. Scope: planning tasks, assigning teammate responsibilities, and coordinating teamwork
  2. Timeline: setting a deadline and motivating team members to stay on track
  3. Budget: examining what is worth financial expense (e.g., project-specific costs)
  4. Risk: assessing possible risks and managing them proactively
  5. Quality: overseeing work produced and adapting to maintain standards
  6. Resources: acquiring project-specific items to ensure completion

Project management includes lots of coordination between various team members, and often across many departments. The size of the project determines how much work your freelance project manager will have to perform and how much it will cost for your freelance hire.

What You Need to Look For in a Project Manager for Hire

Due to the large number of tasks a project manager oversees, you need to be precise and specific with your needs and expectations. A freelance hire can wreck a project if he or she doesn’t coordinate your company team members well. 

  1. Plan ahead. Give yourself enough time to hire someone for the position so the project does not get off to a bad start.
  2. Provide a clear job description. If you have other employees already in mind for project-specific tasks, make sure your freelance hire knows this.
  3. Ask the right interview questions. Determine their project management experience has taught them to coordinate, adapt, and problem solve.
  4. Assess their worth. If they look too good to be true, don’t hire them. They may ask for less money and you may suffer from poor freelance management.
  5. When you’re ready to hire a freelance project manager, make an offer they cannot refuse.

After you have thoroughly considered the qualifications for your freelance hire, you need to determine what to pay your potential project manager for hire.

How Much Does a Freelance Project Manager Cost?

Your average freelance project manager salary ranges from $32,500 to $210,000. With such a wide range in pay, you may be asking yourself what determines the cost.

Your average project manager salary is determined by a few factors. For example:

  • Whether you work in the private or public sector
  • Experience in project management
  • Specialization in any niche projects or markets
  • Location, such as city, country, or remote
  • Certification or education in project management
  • Cost of average project budget

Of course, you will pay less for shorter projects and less qualified individuals, but you may end up paying more if you are located in an urban setting and working with someone in-person. In essence, you get what you can afford and are willing to pay for.

Where to Find a Good Project Manager for Hire

Determining hiring costs and the responsibilities of a freelance project manager is just half of the work. You also need to know where to turn to find a quality project manager for hire. You need a hiring platform that stands out from the rest.
