Clients use instant match search to find the suppliers with the skills they are looking for. If you match the skills they need, your profile and portfolio will be in their search results. They can share a project brief if they think you could be the right person for their project. Once a client shares their project brief, you can communicate with them via integrated chat to ask questions, address queries, provide quotes and more.

Jam Pan will automatically subtract the relevant Fee from the contract value when the Client makes a payment to Jam Pan and then pay you the Supplier the balance net of the fee.

So if your day rate is £200, you’ll get paid £164 by us.

The fee reduces based on how much work you win via Jam Pan in a 12 month period, so the more you win, the more you’ll earn.
