The UK is experiencing a self-employment boom, with over 4.6 million Brits now opting to be their own boss.

What has prompted this shift? Why are so many choosing a freelance career over the security of employment? And what help and advice is there to support this decision?

Our friends over at Crunch Accountancy created a short film that explores the highs and lows of freelancing. Over to Sohpie at Crunch to explain:

At Crunch, we work closely with startup businesses and freelancers. One issue that crops up again and again is the overwhelming amount of information available for freelancers, yet very limited focus on what it actually takes to make the leap from employment to full-time freelancing.

We spoke to researchers, industry experts and freelancers across the country to find out what they’ve learnt on the frontiers of this new approach to working. The result is a short film that explores the highs and lows of freelancing, provides first-hand advice and a range of tips and resources to enhance your journey into self-employment.
