What steps can I take to remain safe when first meeting a client?

When working independently, you are responsible for your own safety. Here are some steps we suggest you might take to remain safe during your first meeting with a client

  • Before you arrange a face to face interview, you might want to have a chat on the phone with your potential client. This will give you the opportunity to ask important questions you might have, and will also give you a chance to gauge if you feel comfortable with each other.
  • If you decide to meet face to face, we suggest meeting in a public space for the first interview.
  • Before meeting a client for the first time, ensure you include the date, time and location you plan to meet in the Mable messaging system so we have a record of this.

If you are ever made to feel uncomfortable when speaking with or working with a client, please let us know straight away so we can investigate this further.
