Here is their story:
Remote Team Network (RTN) is a new internet company, set up in 2010, specialising in connecting UK freelancers with projects that can be done remotely online, usually working from home.
Through our secure website www.remoteworkersonline.com, companies post projects and freelancers can respond to them to bid on a job. This is a transparent and easy way for freelancers across many sectors, to find new, self employed remote-working projects at UK rates of pay.
The Directors of RTN are experienced business people who have worked internationally as freelance contractors, so they know what freelancers need.
Trevor Bettell is a structural engineer with experience in all forms of construction and Cheryl Dowler Bettell has worked in marketing and PR across all business sectors.
Cheryl and Trevor state: “We started the company to make it easy for UK freelance contractors to compete for UK outsourced jobs on a level playing field and for companies to keep jobs in the UK.
We are building a community of people who are ready to work remotely on jobs. Many people are seeking more flexible jobs, so they can enjoy a much better work-life balance. Working from home they gain a more relaxed lifestyle and can spend more time with their family, or on leisure activities, rather than spending time and money on commuting. Not having to fill the car up every couple of days to drive to work also means less outlay, which is good news.
A great boost for RTN has been winning a major export contract in Uganda. The entire project is a multi-million pound tourist development at Jinja, alongside the Source of the Nile and Lake Victoria. We have won the first stage to provide the conceptual design, in association with PWP Architects of Havant, and have high hopes of taking the project through to full implementation. RTN is inviting freelance construction specialists in the UK to lodge their interest in providing remote work on the project – specialists such as quantity surveyors, contract and project managers, civil and structural engineers and draughtsman.
The trend to home-based jobs is predicted to continue rising steadily from today’s estimate of 4 million to a likely 6 million in 2012. By helping create new jobs in the UK, RTN is playing its part in helping the UK economy to climb out of recession.
Aiming to make remote working easy for both businesses and freelancers, Trevor or Cheryl would be happy to chat about it on 0845 2000 750.
