Upwork Plus Benefits at a Glance




With Upwork Plus, you get dedicated support to help you with your job post and your talent sourcing. This includes both an account manager and the option to work with a Talent Specialist on any project. Here’s how they can help.

Account Managers… are here to help you maximize the way you use Upwork and freelance talent. They will help you plan what talent you need and why, then help grow your talent pool in a matter of days. When time is of the essence, account managers remove roadblocks and find you the talent you need, quick.

Talent Specialists… are here to help you find the best talent for you once you’ve posted your job. In addition to answering any project-related questions you have, Talent Specialists can review your job posts to make sure they’re the best they can be, then help identify the top 3-5 proposals that are the best matches for your project. If you don’t receive qualified proposals, they’ll invite freelancers to submit proposals to keep things moving.
