Hi,

 

I have an agency upwork account and a Freelancer upwork account too.

 

Can i hire (as an agency) my own Freelancer (atatched to this same company)? Is it something that I can do or not?

 

Thank you.

Hi Rob,
I don't quite understand your question. You are already a member of an agency and you want to hire your freelancer account on a contract? For what purpose?

Hi,

 

My question is: as a Freelancer can I apply for my agency project too? to help me (as a freelance) to get my first project? or we can't do that?

Please advise.

Thank you

No, you must not hire yourself, as that is considered feedback fraud. Having two or more accounts, which you also seem to have, is also not allowed.

 

Furthermore: agencies do not hire freelancers.

What do you mean 2 accounts? I have a freelancer and an agency account. I am not allowed to have that?

Rob,

 

You can create an agency using your current freelancer account. There is an option under your Settings. You as a freelancer will then be the owner of the agency and can work with the team of other freelancers. Agencies on Upwork work on contracts but don't hire for contracts.

 

What I believe you are referring to is a client account. You can use Upwork as a client to hire other freelancers and agencies to complete your projects but you can't hire yourself. That would be a serious violation of Upwork ToS.
