The Professional Contractors Group (PCG) has announced its latest initiative – National Freelancers Day (NFD). This idea has come about in order to “gain wider recognition for the contribution that freelancers…and contractors make to the UK economy”.
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. The PCG envisages that these events will bring together, and emphasise the importance of, the UK’s freelance workforce.
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.
