Freelancers provide flexible solutions and are working hard with their clients to assist economic recovery. In a drive to gain wider recognition for the contribution that freelancers, consultants and contractors make to the UK economy, PCG has declared 23rd November as National Freelancers Day.
National Freelancers Day will:
* Highlight this flexible, agile and expert community to UK businesses, educating on how to engage and work with freelancers to help beat the credit crunch
* Celebrate Freelancing as a valid career choice, highlighting the community and support network
* Underpin that to unlock the full potential of freelancing, Government must recognise that freelancers are in business and entitled to clear and fair taxation laws
National Freelancers Day will see a number of events taking place for freelancers across all sectors. PCG envisages that these events will bring together, and emphasise the importance of, the UK’s freelance workforce.
In tandem, PCG will also be calling on its members and the broader community to talk about what it means to be a freelancer and to spread the word through as many channels as possible. National Freelancing Day will educate the country about freelancing and embrace all interested in the freelance way of working - providing advice on hiring freelancers, becoming freelance and on how to make a success of freelancing.
More information about National Freelancers Day will be available over the coming months so keep an eye out!
