Can I hire multiple people from one posting?

I have a series of copy writing jobs. From one post can I hire multiple people for different jobs? In this case do I select 'hire freelancer' each time within that job or when I select 'hire freelancer' does it close the job?

Hi Julie,

 

Welcome to Upwork!

 

Yes, you can hire multiple freelancer from one job post, but I'd advise posting separate jobs if the job scope and requirements are not the same for each task. That will allow you to manage freelancers much more efficiently if you require them to have different skills for different copywriting tasks.

 

If you're hiring multiple freelancers, please make sure to check that box before posting the job. Once you hire a freelancer don't check the option to close the job post, so you would keep the job open and be able to hire additional candidates later.

There is no limit to the number of people you can hire through a single job posting.

 

You may choose to have a job post close automatically when you hire somebody, or you may choose to not do that. There is a checkbox.

If I've already posted the job, and later decided I want to hire multiple for the same job, how do I do that?

Hi Briana, 

 

You can hire multiple freelancers for the same job post by sending each freelancer an offer. For more information about sending an offer, you may read up on this help article.

Thanks Vladimir - appreciate it!

Will freelancers see if I have hired another freelancer? I'd like to hire multiple and don't want one to decline the project if they see I've engaged another.

Hi Rebecca, 


If you hire freelancers in the same job post, other freelancers will be able to see that you hired mutiple freelancers on this section of the job post (as shown in the picture below).

Is there a way to edit the job posting so that I can go back and check the box that allows hiring of multiple freelancers?

Hi Roger,

 

Yes you can edit a job posting after it's posted, you can edit the overview or the details on your job posting. 
Regarding your questions for hiring multiple freelancers.  Once you send a job offer, you will see an option asking if you wanted to keep the job posting open or if you wanted it closed. If you close it you won't be able to hire other freelancers on under the same job posting. I would also like to note that you post the same job posting again.

If you have any additional questions let me know, thank you.

I often hire multiple freelancers for the same job. I have sometimes hired two or three. Sometimes more. I think the most I have hired for a single job was over 20 different freelancers.

 

As far as I recall, I have never indicated in the job posting that I was hiring more than one freelancer for the job.

I need to hire 200+ freelance recruiters for a 10-15 minute job. When I was creating the job posting, it says the maximum number of hires I can have is 99. 

 

What is the best way to do what I need?

Just post the same job twice.

You can hire a bunch of people, and if you run out of hires... Create a new job posting based on the first job posting.

It also says I have "3 invites left". What if I want to invite everyone that is within my filter?

Hi Ray, 

It sounds like you are on the Upwork Basic plan. On this plan, you will only be able to invite 3-freelancers to apply to your job. If your job post's visibility is public, freelancers will still be able to apply to your job post, regardless of your plan. 

If you find the need to invite more freelancers to your job post, you may check these other available plans.

Another option is to feature your job, where you can invite an unlimited number of freelancers to your job post. Here's more information about Featured Jobs for your reference.
