Striive makes it possible

Striive is the largest online marketplace for challenging assignments, where demand and supply align more closely than ever. It is where you are directly visible to clients and our recruiters. Transparent, without any additional links. This is how we keep costs down.

You get to decide how to present yourself, what your rate is set at and which assignments you put yourself forward for. What’s more, you work under your own name. And retain your own identity. After all, you went freelance for a reason! Of course – we’ll help you where we can. We’ll remain on hand to answer questions and offer advice.

HeadFirst eliminates the risk for you

You’re sharp; think of every detail. But despite that, things can still go wrong. That’s why we want to help you stay on top of things as best as possible:

  • We take the risk of not being paid on for you: if you choose Premium, invoices are paid within 25 days – guaranteed. Or within 15 days if you choose the Excellent service package. That’s regardless of whether the client takes longer to pay.
  • HeadFirst is registered with the Data Protection Authority. So your privacy is protected.

Fewer links = better results

The more links between you and the client, the higher the hourly rate paid by the client and the lower the rate received by you. HeadFirst likes to keep things transparent. And operates an open policy. It’s far better for our relationship. And for your competitor position and profits.


Premium or Excellent? The choice is yours

At HeadFirst, we offer three different service packages:

  • Excellent package: complete and fit for the future

With the new Excellent service, not only are we guaranteed to pay with 10 days, but a personal relationship manager is even more involved in the search for a follow-up job and you will be part of Striive iCommunity Crowdsurance. Or enlist the help of a job coach to discuss personal development. For €6.00 per hour worked, you can enjoy these benefits. Naturally, all Premium benefits are also included in this service.

  • Premium service package: carefree and transparent

For €3.00 per hour worked, you can offer yourself directly online for thousands of assignments. In addition, you can be found 24/7 by clients and our recruiters. During your assignment, you receive customised advice from your own relationship manager and we pay your invoices within 14 days. In addition, you are insured – through our partner Alicia Benefits – for professional and corporate liability, cyber risk and accidents. In addition, you can use the legal advice desk and document self-service, thanks to the cooperation with DAS.

Furthermore, we offer you access to Striive Academy for the duration of the assignment. The training environment with professional training courses from world-leading providers in the fields of IT, Technology and Finance, among others. Follow unlimited free online training courses, virtual labs and/or knowledge sessions and take mock exams to test your knowledge.
