Our users represent an exciting mix of diverse communities and cultures that form part of the excitement of Nomad Now.

We display, and insist on, a philosophy of fairness. This concept is a huge theme for us and the glue that creates trust, binds us together and enables us all to integrate smoothly, no matter where our Consultants, Contractors, Freelancers and Clients interact.

We will not tolerate any unfair discrimination, harassment, bullying, coercion or hurting the reputation of others.

Transactions between users are not just ‘deals’. They are experiences that have a high impact on both parties and forge what could be permanent relationships between individuals and between individuals and organizations.

For us to create a better environment in which to offer Freelancer services, support the Nomad Now community. The on-demand workforce model, proven overseas on a massive scale, is a new and exciting phenomenon in South Africa. Let’s spread the word.


We encourage our Clients to be transparent, accurate and fair in describing their companies and specific requirements.

Consultants, Contractors and Freelancers are urged to be honest and accurate in describing their service abilities, and they should not mislead Clients about the nature, number or depth of their skills.

Do your best, improve, learn and re-learn.

It's not just about ‘the deal’. Deliver, impress and build your contribution and reputation. "It's your business."TM
