Online platform, theright.fit, connecting brands with a variety of professional creative talent is hoping to put an end to late and non-payments for all talent who book jobs through its platform.
Taryn Williams, founder of theright.fit and a Women in Media Awards 2017 winner has experienced not being paid on time. She claims that the industry has a reputation for late payments, with the average time from job to payment taking 43 days.
Williams told B&T, “I have personally been in that position so I understand the challenge that is a reality for many people in our industry.”
“theright.fit is all about empowering amazing creative talent which includes models, influencers, actors, photographers, stylists, videographers, makeup artists and more. It can be hard to find work as a freelancer and talent are traditionally charged a commission on every booking.”
The company prides itself in empowering creative job seekers with tools which will help them build their brand profile online via theright.fit website, connecting them to jobs which they may have otherwise not been able to find on their own, and guaranteed timely payments.
theright.fit has also introduced a new ‘payment request’ function, which allows creatives using the platform to submit a bill for services rendered regardless of if the job was booked through the site or not.
