National Freelancers Day 23 Nov 2009

What’s a freelancer – find out on 23 Nov


I happen to be a freelance computer consultant hence I’m shouting about the National Freelancers Day.  There will be a number of events taking place for freelancers across all sectors.

I think we do a fantastic job. We’re highly skilled, highly mobile and highly flexible, and are good value for money in this harsh economic climate, but then I would say that wouldn’t I?

Here is a quote from the National Freelancers Day website

“There are an estimated 1.4 million freelance workers in the UK. Freelancing has grown in importance to the UK economy: in 1998 there were only an estimated 1.25 million freelance workers in the UK. Freelancer numbers have increased by 14 percent in a decade.

Freelancers can be said to:

  • Be neither employers nor employees
  • Be skilled professional workers
  • Supply services to a range or succession of clients
  • Have commercial (“self-employed”) relationships with their clients
  • Work for a fee  “

So if you want to take the plunge and become a freelancer yourself or just want to know more about what we are then follow the link and keep your eyes open for events on the day.
