Yes. You can also work as a 'midlancer'.
Midlancing is a relatively new concept. It’s a combination between the rather uncertain freelancing and the assurance of permanent employment.
You retain your freedom as a freelancer, because you:
- Choose your jobs and clients
- Set your daily rate
- Decide on the length of the project and the working hours
- Determine what salary you receive monthly
In addition, if you have sufficient resources in your 'bonus pot', you can pay yourself a higher salary for a while. How does a bonus pot work?
Let us explain with an example: if you invoice €10,000 monthly and you want to pay yourself a salary of €2,000 then you save about €6,000 in your bonus pot. If there’s enough, then you can say that in certain months you want a higher salary.
In addition, with the midlancer status you don’t have the administrative burden. You don’t have to worry about contracts, legal aspects of paying your salary, sending out invoices or your protection when you are unemployed.
