Can I send proposals from my senior fellow's account?

Hi!

My senior fellow asked me to send job proposals and respond to clients from his account. I will be only maintaining his account. If any client wants to hire then I will tell him, then my fellow will take over the client's job. I will not be working on his account just to maintain his account.

I want to know, can I do that (As he has a compulsion)?

Thank you!!

Aleksandar D, Ok it's clear to me now.

I have another case!

For example, If I am a backend developer and get a job for the backend development, at the end if the client needs the frontend work also and I get that too and get the work done from my fellow who knows frontend but he has no Upwork Profile. Can I do that???

If "No", then what if I inform the client that I will give you your work but I will be not doing that but my fellow will.

Start an agency. As an independent, the answer is still no.

 

You seem to be heading for suspension. i would suggest that you read Upwork's Terms of Service - all of them - very, very carefully.

Actually, one of the mods said on a thread yesterday that you ARE allowed to subcontract work and/or have employees, without starting an agency.

Christine A, Can you share the link to that thread?

Why are you asking about doing only backend, and not front end, when your profile says "Full Stack Web Developer" and "Front-End Development"???

No No, I have just given an example.

You should see I have also written: "For example".

My intention was to get the answer to "Can I get work done from my fellow if needed", to support this I have given an example. I did not really mean that.
