    Best place to hire freelancer


    Does anyone have a recommendation for any VBA freelancer website? or perhaps someone you may have used?

    It seems I'm spending a long time on 'easy' tasks. I would potentially rather pay and have it done. Then review exactly how it was done.

    I've never used one of the freelance sites, but a number of people here do freelance work, so starting a thread asking about that may turn up a good match. Make sure to nail down rates and scope to protect you both.

    just posted a test on guru.com.

    If it goes well, might throw some work that way.

    Post back with your results; I'm curious, and I'm sure other people looking for help might be too.

    Andy,
    I'd look back through your posts and see who was willing to help you and did a good job. Then message them and see if they are available as a contractor.
    You might need to do it a few times to come up with someone.

    Just an update guys:

    James - I have asked a few people here previously who weren't interested.

    I'm using a site called Upwork. I was sceptical about a guy offering to work for $5 an hour but gave him a go. He's new on the site so he's cheep to get work and more reputation.

    So I've said to him I'll divide my work into small jobs for him so I can give more feedback on his work.

    Its working well so far. He's added a folder builder/doc manager for my database.

    I come across small errors in my system every day, or have new ideas. So that support is great for me when I need to get things out the way.

    Andy.

    Odesk. But there are a lot of pros and cons with this medium of employing a freelance worker.

    Try Upwork. They used to be Elance-oDesk before. I've used it before for my persona projects.

    I only saw it now. And it's great that it's working out for you.
