Freelancers group kicks off tenth anniversary year with marketplace survey
The Professional Contractors Group (PCG), which represents the UK’s freelancers, has launched its tenth anniversary year with an important new survey to find out more details about the UK’s freelance workforce.
John Brazier, PCG’s managing director said: “We know there are an estimated 1.4 million freelancers in the UK, and that this dynamic workforce is vital to our economy in these difficult times. We are committed to finding out more about this important body of workers, and this survey will help us do that.”
The survey asks questions about the operation of freelancing in practice. It covers topics such as how freelancers find work, what problems they encounter in the marketplace, how many clients they have, and how they would ideally like to work. It also asks whether they feel they get a fair deal from the legal and regulatory framework in the UK.
The survey is open to PCG members and non-members. We hope this survey will shed further light on how freelancing works in the UK, and look forward to publishing the results in the Spring,” added Mr Brazier.
