On Thursday 8 June, people all over the country will be making a stand. They will be calling for greater recognition, celebrating their successes and looking to the future. They will be of course, celebrating National Freelancers Day, which just so happens to be taking place concurrently with the Snap UK General Election.
In this edition of IPSE Magazine, we cover both of these major events. You can read Steve Richards take on the election race so far, including how the self-employed played a role in convincing the Prime Minister to call it. Our economist Lorence Nye takes a look at some key constituencies where people who work for themselves will play a key role in determining the outcome of the election.
National Freelancers Day is our sector’s moment to shine. In 2017 we go bigger and better than ever with London, Bristol and Manchester all hosting events. It’s also the time when we announce our Freelancers of the year. Read our full preview including an introduction to each of our 15 amazing finalists.
