What's an Upwork Agency
An Upwork agency is a unique business that is created to coordinate the work of freelancers and an offline company that are related to one project.
Every Upwork agency is made up of exclusive and non-exclusive freelancers, each of whom fulfills a certain role. For example, there is an Owner of an agency, Admin, Business and Financial managers, and contractors.
Depending on the appointed role, different members of agencies have different rights, obligations, and permissions. For example, an exclusive freelancer can accept invites, run personal work diary, view work diaries of other freelancers, and access Agency reports. However, he cannot accept offers (those are appointed by the admin or the owner), change member roles, withdraw funds from an agency account, change privacy settings of other members, etc.
Owners and admins of Upwork agencies have more rights and obligations compared to others members. These are the only members of agencies who can hire or dismiss freelancer, set the hourly rates for exclusive freelancers, and manage roles in agencies.
