A freelancer or freelance worker is term commonly used for a person who is self-employed and is not necessarily committed to a particular employer long-term. Freelance workers are sometimes represented by a company or an agency that resells their labor and that of others to its clients with or without project management and labor contributed by its regular employees. Others are completely independent. While “independent contractor” would be the term used in a higher register of English, freelancing is common in culture and creative industries and this term specifically motions to participation therein.
