This special bumper edition of Modern Work pays homage to the UK’s booming self-employed sector. We feature all the finalists named in this year’s IPSE Freelancer of the Year Awards, which celebrate the country’s best and brightest freelancers plus those organisations and individuals who support this way of working. The winners of each category will be announced on National Freelancers Day – 28 June.
The cost of competing in major tournaments was a hot topic of discussion at the Commonwealth Games this year – particularly for many athletes who work on self-employed contracts. So we spoke to hurdler Gianni Frankis about the challenges and lifestyle of athletes.
Also in this edition, we look at a new report by think tank Demos, which reveals how policy is lagging behind when it comes to supporting the self-employed sector; and discuss why the government should prioritise single market access in the Brexit negotiations.
Finally, if you have any questions you need one of our experts to answer, get in touch via Facebook, Twitter or email. Enjoy the read.
