Freelancer.com, an international online marketplace for freelance skills, has now launched across French-speaking Africa.

Freelancer.com is described as the world’s largest online marketplace for outsourcing.

The site aims to connect French speaking freelancers and businesses across Africa and France in a single online marketplace. Through the site, businesses and employers will be able to hire freelancers to do work in areas such as software, writing, data entry and design right through to engineering and the sciences, sales and marketing and accounting and legal services.

Freelancer.com CEO Matt Barrie says the service has already helped more than four million people start up and grow businesses or become freelancers worldwide, helping them turn their ideas into real money-making businesses at a fraction of the cost, or helping them to find work via the internet.

 “The launch of Freelancer.com will put French-speaking Africa at the heart of digital business revolution. French-speaking African freelancers and businesses will be able to connect with each other as well as work for French businesses. They will be able to trade across the whole of the French speaking world,” said Barrie.
