Following the success of last year’s National Freelancers Day, PCG have just announced that the event will run again this year. The date for your diary is Tuesday 23rd November. The National Freelancers Day is an opportunity to celebrate the growth of the contracting community and the contribution that all freelancers make to the UK economy.
Last year the theme of the event was ‘The Future of Work’ which ultimately resulted in the launch of the PCG’s ‘Manifesto for Freelancing’. This year, PCG have decided to centre the even around the concept of ‘Freeing up Potential’. Particular emphasis will be placed on the flexible lifestyle choices afforded by freelancing and the continued strength which contractors bring to the economy.
Managing director of PCG, John Brazier, believes that this annual event will become an important date in the calendars of the 1.4 million freelancers in the UK. He commented: “The success of last year’s events underlined the growing importance of the freelance community to the economy of the UK. More and more people see freelancing as their ideal 21st century work choice. They see the potential of freelancing as a positive and rewarding choice for their work while enhancing their lifestyle.”
Mr Brazier concluded: “We reached out to the freelance community throughout the UK and the attendance at regional events underlined the growing confidence and pride freelancers have in their role in society.”
