Best Freelance Jobs in the UK 2023

Connor Campbell

Whether you’re considering a new career, looking to forge your own path out of university or want to be your own boss, there is a lot to weigh up before joining the UK’s 1.9 million freelancers. 

But which profession should you pursue? To make your decision easier, we have taken a look at the best freelance jobs in the UK as of 2023.

However, we know that the best overall freelance profession might not be the best for you. You may prioritise stability over pay. Or you may prefer a job where you need to take on only a few projects a year to make up your annual salary.

That’s why we have broken down our chosen freelance industries into four categories: best paid, least hustle, most stable and least competitive. 

» MORE: What is freelancing?

Key findings

Best overall freelance jobs.

After taking into consideration earnings ability, hustle, stability and competitiveness, we calculated a star rating for each freelance profession. The methodology is as follows:

  • Best paid: We analysed average freelance day rates combined with UK consumer price inflation (CPI) data for June 2023 to estimate this year’s earning rates.
  • Least hustle: We worked out the number of freelance projects you would need to take on to match the average annual full-time salary per profession. We refer to this amount of work as “hustle”.
  • Most stable: We estimated the potential available freelancer jobs (by working days) by analysing the number of jobs by profession available on freelancing website Upwork combined with the average project working length.
  • Least competitive: We analysed the number of available jobs for over 480 roles on Upwork, grouping them by profession. We then worked out the relative number of postings there were for every freelancer job search on Google.

As both the least competitive and most stable profession, developers easily topped the list as the best freelance profession in 2023 with 4.4 stars. That includes developers of all stripes, from front- and back-end to games, apps and emails. 

Thanks to being the best paid industry, market research is the second best freelance profession with 3.4 stars. That’s despite having a star score of just 0.6 for its stability rating. 

With a strong earnings score, data came in third with 3.3 stars. This ranking is also due to the fact you would need to take on the fewest projects in a year of all the professions considered to match the average full-time salary in that field. Jobs in this industry include data analysts, scientists and engineers.

The day rates offered to take up a freelance strategy role helped to place it fourth, but its overall score was dragged down to 2.7 stars due to a lack of stability. User experience (UX) professionals, in fifth, had the same problem – a competitive field with little stability produced an overall rating of 2.6 stars.

Best paid freelance jobs

One of the first considerations when going freelance is how much to charge for your services. Pitching your day rate at the correct level can be the difference between securing a contract and not getting one. So it’s useful to have a benchmark to work from.

Using average day rates in the UK from freelance hiring and management platform YunoJuno, and the latest UK inflation figures, we have calculated day rate estimates for 16 key freelance professions in 2023. 

Given the importance of pay, it perhaps isn’t a surprise that the top five best overall freelance professions also make up the best paid.

Those in the market research industry topped the list, with an average day rate estimate of £558.90. Data-based professions weren’t far behind at £555.70, followed by those working in strategy at £541.70. Freelance UX professionals were at £536.30, with developers completing the top five at £474.80. 

These roles typically require specialist technical knowledge or, in the case of strategy, the potential need for experience and seniority.

At the other end of the table, marketing specialists (£369), social media professionals (£349.60) and studio freelancers (£326.90), such as studio managers and photo retouchers, had the lowest average day rates. 

Of course, these numbers come with a couple of caveats. The figures are based on average day rates across entire industries – some roles in any given industry are going to have a higher premium attached than others. Similarly, when you are newer to freelancing, you may not be able to charge as much for your services as when you are more established.

Least hustle freelance jobs

How much you can charge as a freelancer is only one part of the equation. How much work you need to take on each year to earn a comparable wage to that of a full-time employee – which we’re referring to as “hustle” – is arguably just as important. 

That’s because the fewer projects you need to take on in a year, the more you can focus on doing a good job rather than pitching for the next one.

Using the average salary in each industry from recruitment site Reed.co.uk as the benchmark, we have worked out how many projects a freelancer would need to take on in a year to at least match the earnings of a full-time employee in that same industry.

Freelance data professionals, for example, needed to take on only roughly 1.7 projects a year to match the average annual salary of a full-time employee in that field.

Those in quality assurance (QA) and testing weren’t far behind, needing only 1.8 projects a year to meet the industry average salary. 

Market research and public relations (PR) specialists were next, both needing 2.3 projects a year to match the average salaries in their respective industries, with marketing next at 2.4 projects.

These numbers are in stark contrast to those working in film and motion, who had to take on an estimated 9.8 projects a year to get the same average full-time salary in that industry. However, that isn’t necessarily surprising given the project-based nature of film and television.

Most stable freelance jobs

One aspect of full-time employment that can be missing from freelance life is stability. Instead of a guaranteed salary, the money you make will depend on the work you can find.

As a freelancer, the more jobs that are available, the better your chances of reaching the level of stability of a full-time employee.

To work out the most stable freelancer professions, we calculated the number of total potential working days available for each industry by using a snapshot of jobs posted on freelancing platform Upwork and the average project length according to YunoJuno. 

If stability is what you are looking for, then working as a freelance developer may be your best bet, with over 4.6 million available working days. Developers have over 20,000 more jobs available on Upwork than the next closest profession.

Marketing, in second place, has just over 2.6 million working days in projects listed on Upwork, followed by the data industry with over 1.5 million. Designers came fourth with over 1.2 million working days available, followed by creatives, such as writers and illustrators, with over 1.1 million.

With only roughly 250 working days in the year, these figures may seem eye-wateringly high. But as an indication of demand, they are a useful measure to help you decide whether or not to make the leap to freelance work.

Least competitive freelance jobs

Before deciding whether or not to go freelance, it is a good idea to assess how unique your individual skill set is. One way to do so in broad terms is to look at how competitive your chosen industry is. 

We looked at the number of jobs posted on Upwork per freelancer job searches on Google. The higher the number, the more likely it is that you will be able to find work.

Through this approach, we found that being a freelance developer is the least competitive profession, with 190.5 jobs per search. As is the case with stability, this ranking is mostly due to the sheer number of jobs for developers available at any given time. 

In second place was market research, but for slightly different reasons. While there was a much smaller number of market research jobs on Upwork (3,627) compared with developer jobs (110,469), the search volume for freelance jobs for the former was tiny, at just 30 monthly searches. So whereas developers benefit from the vast number of jobs, market research specialists benefit from the seemingly smaller pool of freelancers competing for those contracts.

The suggestion of a smaller number of active freelancers was also the case for those working in strategy, such as content strategists, management consultants and business planners, who came in third place.

While social media had around a quarter of the jobs available for developers, a good balance between number of roles and volume of searches meant it came in fourth, while film and motion was fifth.

Despite over 55,000 available jobs, the third most after developers and designers, creatives ended up as the fourth most competitive industry. That’s because the number of Google searches for freelance writing, editing and illustrating jobs was far and away the highest when compared with other professions on the list. This volume makes sense – according to the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed (IPSE), 17% of freelancers in the UK work in artistic, media and literary occupations, more than double the next largest occupation.

What to know before going freelance

Becoming a freelancer can be a big – if exciting – step to take. But alongside the factors mentioned above, it is important to consider some of the practicalities of going freelance, and how it differs from full-time employment:

  • Your personal cost of living, as well as your level of experience, will play a part in how much you actually charge as your day rate.
  • You won’t have paid annual leave as a freelancer – though you should still try to maintain a good work-life balance.
  • As a freelancer, you will not have access to a company pension. You may, therefore, want to look into setting up your own personal pension .
  • Picking your business structure is important. Whether you operate as a sole trader or a limited company will have implications for the amount of tax you pay and what you pay it on.
  • Unlike a full-time employee, when freelancing, it is your responsibility to keep on top of your expenses and how much tax you will need to pay. You may want to look into whether you need an accountant .
  • To help stay on top of your finances, you may need to open a business bank account . Having one is optional as a sole trader, but a requirement of limited companies.

  • What Do I Need to Know to Freelance in the UK?

If You’re a UK Citizen

  • Decide on a company type. Most freelancers are sole traders, meaning it’s only them in the business and they’re fully responsible for taxes, profits, and losses. You can also be in a partnership with another person or company and share that responsibility, or set up a limited company.
  • Decide on a name. You can either trade under your name or a company name, and that comes down to personal preference. Bear in mind that if you create a company name, there are different rules for sole traders and limited companies.
  • Register as self-employed. To ensure compliance, it is important to register for self-assessment taxes with HMRC (the UK tax office) no later than the 5th of October within the ongoing tax year. I advise completing this registration promptly upon commencing your trading activities, as failure to do so within your second year of operation can result in penalties.
  • Start a document folder. You’ll need to keep copies of invoices, payments received, receipts, HMRC communications, and any other documents related to your business. HMRC can – and will – investigate accounts for any reason, so it’s best to have these documents in an easy-to-find folder.
  • Set up banking accounts. While you can use your personal bank account to receive money if you’re a sole trader, you’ll need a separate business account if you’re a limited company. I also recommend you open a business savings account to put money aside for self-assessment taxes and national insurance.
  • Set up your accounts. You can either pay for an accountant or use accounting software like QuickBooks or Xero. Make sure you note down every transaction related to your business, as you’ll be able to deduct costs like insurance, software licenses, and banking fees from your taxes.
  • Take out insurance. Depending on what products or services you’re selling, you’ll need insurance to protect yourself from potential legal issues. Professional Indemnity Insurance is the most common, and it may be required by some clients. If you’re working from home, you’ll need to check whether your home insurance allows you to run a business from home.
  • Start selling. Now you’re set up, you can head into the wild world of freelancing and start making a living from the work you’re passionate about. Congrats!

If You’re Not a UK Citizen

  • Apply for a Visa. Whether you’re planning a trip or relocating to the UK, starting your own business will require an Innovator or Start-up Visa. You can submit your application for these while you’re already in the UK on a different Visa. After you’ve sent in your application, expect to wait 3 weeks for a reply if you’re outside the UK, or 8 weeks if you’re within the country.
  • Apply for a National Insurance (NI) number. Every self-employed person needs an NI number for tax purposes. You’ll be able to apply for this once you’ve received the right to work in the UK. It can take up to 8 weeks to receive this following your application.
  • Register for self-employment. Once you’ve got both of these things secured, follow the steps I’ve outlined above to set up your freelance business. Welcome to the UK!

Best platforms for freelancers

' src=

Written by Jack Lewis

Finding work as a freelancer can be tough, but fortunately, there are plenty of websites and apps that are designed to make things easier. In this article, we take a look at some of the most popular sites and then weigh up the pros and cons of the different types.

uk freelance projects

Most popular freelancer websites

Fiverr is straightforward to use, and there are no joining or subscription fees. You create a profile, and then you create ‘gigs’, which are essentially service packages. For example, you may offer a basic logo design for £x or writing a 400-word blog post for £x. Clients can then sign-up for your gigs. When you have completed each project, you get paid 80% of the fee and Fiverr keeps the other 20%. The downside of Fiverr is that it’s highly competitive. Lots of freelancers offer services starting from as low as £4.02. However, if you are just starting out, it can be a good place to build a portfolio and gain a bit of experience.

Upwork allows freelancers to create profiles and then bid on jobs posted by clients. It also matches you to positions that you are most suited to based on your profile information and experience. Upwork is free to join; they take a % of your fee, which works on a sliding scale — the more work you do for the same client, the lower the % they take. Work can be billed by the hour or as a fixed-price project. In the past, you were given an allowance of free ‘connects’ each month, and you bid for work using a specified number of ‘connects’. To improve the service for both freelancers and clients, Upwork is now charging freelancers a small fee to buy connects. The theory is that freelancers will be more particular about the projects they bid on, meaning the client doesn’t get as many time wasters. Freelancers will be bidding against fewer people so have a better chance of winning the projects they do bid for.

Freelancer works in a similar way to Upwork, whereby clients post jobs and freelancers can bid for the project. The client then selects the most suitable freelancer. There is a vast range of projects available on Freelancer, and you can easily search by category, type of work and budgets to narrow your search down to the most relevant job.

Similar to Freelancer and Upwork, clients post jobs and freelancers can send proposals to try and win the work. CloudPeeps then takes a % of your fee. Although there is a free version, the paid version offers more benefits and allows you to submit more proposals.

People Per Hour

People per hour is similar to the above sites. Clients can post jobs for freelancers to bid on or search a directory of freelancers and contact them to discuss the requirements. Freelancers are also able to create packages that clients can sign up for. People Per hour has an application process that freelancers have to complete before they can quote for projects. Once accepted, you can bid on a set number of projects per month. If you want to bid on more, you can purchase credits.

uk freelance projects

Guru is similar to other platforms in that employers can post a job and freelancers can bid for that job. Like other platforms, Guru allows both employers and freelancers to create free accounts. However, Guru charges a lower % of the fee than some other sites because it also charges a handling fee to the employer. They also offer freelancers a paid membership option. The paid membership has different levels and the higher level you sign up for, the more projects you can bid on and the lower % you pay on your fee. There are also some other perks, such as free skills training and the option to link to your website if you sign up for the highest priced packages.

SolidGigs is a membership site for designers, developers, marketers and writers. You sign up and pay a monthly subscription of $19, which you can cancel at any time. In return, SolidGigs searches the web and sends you a daily email of quality leads. As well as getting sent leads for relevant jobs, you also get access to their library of training courses, templates, tools, videos and resources.

Flexjobs curates job listings from across the globe and screens them to ensure they are genuine opportunities. As well as freelance work, you can find part-time, work-from-home and remote jobs in a range of fields. Flexjobs does allow you to view some job listings for free, but for full access to job listings, email alerts and a personalised profile, you need to pay a membership fee. There are three options; monthly, quarterly or annually. The longer you sign for, the lower the monthly fee.

Toptal is for freelance software developers, designers, product managers, project managers and finance experts. Their screening process is stringent, and only 3% of applicants get added to their network. Although it is difficult to become a Toptal freelancer, they have a high calibre of client. This means that if you are accepted, you can find yourself involved in some extremely exciting and lucrative projects.

Bark is a UK based company which matches clients with freelancers. Clients tell Bark what they need, and then the Bark team find freelancers who can deliver it. Projects can be anything from gardening, cleaning and dog grooming to content creation, web design and project management. As a freelancer, you can pay for credits. Bark then send you relevant jobs, and if you are interested, you use credits to get access to the client’s details. You can then contact the client and pitch your services.

Shapr is like Tinder for business. The premise is very similar…you view profiles of people that may be useful connections for you and then swipe if you want to be connected. It’s basically an online networking site. You build relationships with new people each day that you might be able to do business with, refer business to or get referrals from. It’s possible to find work or recruit, look for mentors or meet potential clients and suppliers.

Portl is a relatively new app for freelancers and is still in the early stages, but it is definitely one to watch. There is no cost for freelancers to build a profile and upload their skills. You don’t have to pay Portl any commission or subscription fees. It is completely free for freelancers.

Clients pay for credits and then search for freelancers with the right skills, expertise and availability. Once they find freelancers who match their requirements, they use a credit to unlock the contact details.

Once a profile is unlocked, the client can contact the freelancer to discuss the project. There are no further fees for either party. If a client has unlocked your profile, they can work with you as many times as they want with no additional charges. Credits start from as little as £3 making it one of the most cost-effective platforms for both freelancers and clients.

Others platforms are available!

There are hundreds of sites designed to help freelancers get more work. Smashing magazine is a site purely for designers and developers. 99Designs is for graphic designers.

Task Rabbit allows you to post tasks you need doing such as assembling flat pack furniture or cleaning. They do have quite a few requests for admin tasks so it can be a source of work for personal assistants and virtual assistants.

Amazon Turk is Amazon’s platform where tasks such as data input, research and content moderation can be outsourced, so if you like this type of work, it’s worth checking out.

As well as freelancer and task outsourcing platforms, social media sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn can be useful places to find new clients.

Which platforms work best?

As with any type of marketing, what works for some doesn’t work for others. All of the sites listed above have plenty of great reviews, but a quick search of freelancer forums will bring up lots of negative feedback too.

uk freelance projects

To help you work out which to go for, here’s a quick rundown of the pros and cons of the main types.

Pay a % of your fee.

Sites that charge a fee based on the work you do are usually free to join which means there is minimal risk to you. They can be useful when you start out and have plenty of time to spend searching job listings and bidding on work. As you build up reviews, then more clients will start approaching you to submit proposals, so you won’t have to do as much work searching for projects.

The downside is that they are highly competitive. Global sites mean you are up against freelancers working in countries where the cost of living is low. Those freelancers can afford to take work at low rates, and that can be difficult to compete with.

If you aren’t relying solely on these platforms, then you can put up a profile with high rates and see if anything comes your way. If you get people willing to pay your prices, then great; if not, you haven’t lost anything apart from the short amount of time it takes to create a profile.

Membership sites/lead generation

These tend to filter out the not so good freelancers as you have to pay a fee. It’s in the site’s interest to send you quality leads; if they don’t, you’ll stop paying. Equally, they need to match clients with quality freelancers, or the clients will go elsewhere.

Although this can be an excellent way to find new projects, there is no guarantee that you will win work. You still have to take the time to put together proposals, and you will be up against other qualified freelancers.

If you are confident in your services, know exactly what type of work you want and can put together a good pitch, then these sites can work well for you.

Recruitment sites/job boards

Traditional job boards such as Indeed and Monster do post the odd requests for freelancers, and also have listings for remote working and part-time jobs. It can be worth visiting these and looking for work as they can be less competitive than sites geared purely toward freelancers.

Social media

Social media is a fantastic tool for freelancers as it costs absolutely nothing for you to set up a personal profile or business page. There are always people looking for recommendations on platforms like LinkedIn and Facebook, and there are plenty of networking groups to join.

The downside to social media is that it can be tough to stand out. Someone who asks for a recommendation can get over 100 comments from people recommending their associates, friends, clients or themselves.

LinkedIn is useful for targeting specific types of business as you can use the search function to find the right people. You can also sign up for the premium package which allows you to send messages to people you aren’t connected to.

If you do decide to pitch this way, then take the time to craft personalised messages. People don’t respond well when they accept a connection request only to be bombarded with spammy marketing messages.

How to stand out from the crowd

The trick to any of these platforms is making yourself stand out. You need to be the freelancer that appeals most to the client. That means taking time to create a good profile. Spend some time thinking about the type of clients and projects you want. The more specific you can be, the more likely you are to get matched to relevant jobs and win them. Give details about the results you deliver, using case studies and client feedback when appropriate.

When pitching for work, read the brief carefully and research the client’s business so you can personalise the proposal and focus on the benefits that will be most relevant. Make it sound like you are genuinely interested in their business, not just sending the same templated proposal to everyone and anyone who might be in the market for your services.

Ask for feedback once you have completed projects. You can use this feedback to increase your credibility and improve your chances of winning more work going forward.

Getting paid

The good thing about a lot of freelancer platforms is that they take money from the client up front and then transfer it to your account once the work is signed off. This reduces the risk of not getting paid or having clients who pay late.

Make sure you understand the payment terms and fees of any site and be wary of clients who find you on these platforms but want to agree on payment terms away from the site. If you accept payments through other means, you aren’t always guaranteed to get what you are owed.

Key Takeaways

We hope this article has given you a good overview of the different platforms available. Here are some of the key takeaways.

  • Not every platform will work for every individual
  • Some platforms are very competitive
  • Make sure you understand the fees
  • Spend time creating a good profile
  • Read project briefs carefully and submit personalised proposals
  • If you find work through these platforms, take payments through them

1. ziprecruiter.

Our expert review:

Reasons to buy

Reasons to avoid.

ZipRecruiter is one of the easiest job boards to use, which makes it ideal if you’re just starting your journey in the world of work, or if you’re not particularly confident with using computers. The easy approach sits alongside a sizable job database.

This site works like a job search engine, so it’s instantly familiar. It doesn’t throw loads of options at you either: put in your keyword, location and the distance you’re willing to travel, and you’ll quickly see a list of relevant positions.

The results are easy to parse: you’ll see the job title, the employer and its location alongside the first line of the job description, and if you click on a likely lead you can open its full description. Some companies use ZipRecruiter’s Quick Apply feature so you can send your application with a couple of clicks, while other adverts will take you to a third-party site where you’ll be able to apply instead.

ZipRecruiter has an extensive profile section where you can easily display your work and education history, a biography and a photograph, and you can upload your resume and list your social networks - and all of this is used during your applications. You can also add skills and professional certifications. ZipRecruiter has an app, too, so your job hunt doesn’t have to stop.

This site is straightforward, but it isn’t the most comprehensive job tool. You can’t apply filters to your searches like you can on other sites, and job listings don’t have much detail. Because ZipRecruiter scrapes listings from elsewhere, be aware of redundant and spam listings. You won’t find skills assessments, resume reviews, or articles on this site either.

ZipRecruiter is easy to use - especially if companies use Quick Apply - and has a large job database and good profiling. However, the lack of filtering means it’s only suitable if you know what you’re looking for or if you’re happy to sift through loads of listings, and the lack of features means we wouldn’t rely solely on this site.

Toptal doesn't have the most extensive database of jobs or users, but that's the point: this site only lists world-class freelancers. That's why companies like Microsoft, Bridgestone, and Salesforce rely on Toptal to find top talent.

Toptal uses a rigorous screening process to ensure that only the best candidates are available, with language and personality reviews, skills tests, live screening, and test projects all used to find world-class talent. The firm says that only 3% of its freelance applicants end up listed, and Toptal also uses industry experts to hand-pick freelancers for each project.

That's a high barrier to entry, but it means that freelancers can pick up lucrative projects and that companies will find high-quality workers. Also, consider that Toptal only works with developers, designers, finance experts, and product and project managers.

The focused job titles and high barrier to entry mean that there will be lots of situations where Toptal just isn't suitable. But if you're a world-class freelancer or if you need to find that world-class talent, this is the place to start.  

Guru isn't just one of the best freelance websites out there. It's also one of the largest freelance marketplaces on the web, with more than two million freelancers and 800,000 employers listed, and that means you'll be able to find experts in a variety of fields. Guru covers programming and development, design, writing, sales, marketing, and management, and you'll also be able to find freelancers who work in the legal, engineering and education fields.

The site's colossal database has freelancer verification – so you can be sure you're hiring a legitimate person. Secure payments and low fees mean that the process is reliable and trustworthy for both freelancers and employers.

Freelancers also have feedback ratings on the site, so you can see how well people perform before you reach out. It's possible to hire people based on a fixed price contract, an hourly rate, a task-based rate, or a recurring fee, so there's loads of flexibility for everyone involved, and you can manage projects from the site's built-in dashboard.

Guru is free to join as a freelancer or an employer, but the site takes a fee from both sides on every paid invoice. The site's paid memberships are also worthwhile: if you're a freelancer, you can receive more bids, pay lower fees, boost your ranking, and send highlighted quotes, and paid employer accounts mean you get lower fees, unlimited job postings, and access to top freelancers.

Upwork is one of the most prominent freelance marketplaces on the web, and there's plenty of reasons to use this vast site. It lists freelancers in every conceivable job and every big industry and focuses on marketing and software development.

Upwork verifies and reviews freelancers, so you can be sure you're hiring someone legitimate. You can even check a freelancer's work samples before you make an offer. Freelancers can also take advantage of articles and resources to help them find work and grow their careers.

Once a company has posted a project, freelancers can apply for the position, allowing employers to find the best fit for the job. There's a wide variety of short- and long-term contracts on Upwork, and it's easy for freelancers and employers to chat thanks to text and video messaging.

Upwork's Talent Scout feature matches projects to top-quality freelancers, and freelancers can join the site for free. As usual, though, Upwork does take fees from each job, but if you work on larger projects, the rate is lower. Upwork's sheer size means freelancers and employers shouldn't ignore it.

5. Freelancer.com

Freelancer.com is one of the most straightforward freelance marketplaces online, so it's no wonder that it's trusted by companies like Amazon , IBM, and Google. It's also one of the largest freelance sites, too – the company claims that it has a global pool of fifty million users who have expertise in more than 1800 different skills.

If you're an employer, you can browse people's portfolios and quickly post a listing, and Freelancer.com says that 80% of its jobs receive a bid from a freelancer within sixty seconds. The size of this site means that it's suitable for all kinds of large and small projects, and you can use the site's recruitment and project management experts if you need a little guidance.

This site also has modules for generating ideas and learning about different subjects, which supplies a great all-round experience.

Employers can post any size of project with any kind of payment method on the site, and you only pay when you're satisfied with the work. The site's live chat and dedicated app make it easy to manage your project, and freelancers can use the app to stay in touch with managers and get alerts about relevant job postings.

Freelancer.com's massive database of users, straightforward job posting, and mobile app mean that this is an impressive and versatile option for both freelancers and employers.

6. People Per Hour

More than three million people and one million businesses use this site across every key category, from SEO and web development to content writing, voiceovers, and marketing. If you need a person for a job – no matter how obscure – you'll find them on People Per Hour.

Employers can post any small or large projects on this site, and freelancer ratings and reviews mean you can pick people who are more likely to produce good work.

Freelancers can apply for certification, which will make them more trustworthy in the eyes of employers, and you can spend time building an eye-catching profile to make you stand out. Similarly, freelancers can also post adverts to attract employers. The site uses a bespoke AI system to match freelancers with potential projects based on their experience and abilities.

Freelancers and employers can combine using this site's Project Streams, which allows easy communication, asset sharing, and project management. You can raise invoices from here, too, and secure payments are made quickly and easily. And, happily, People Per Hour's fees are among the lowest in the industry, so this site is a good-value choice.

Lots of freelance marketplaces concentrate on having a huge database of freelancers and jobs in every industry, but that's not the case with Aquent. Instead, this site prioritizes creativity and diversity, and it uses machine learning to match projects with expert recruiters – and it's those recruiters who find the right talent.

Aquent says that its machine learning, language processing, and image analysis procedures provide better insight and better results when matching projects with freelancers. Aquent also promises to provide freelancers with great projects and fair rates of pay.

This site isn't just a freelance marketplace, either. The firm offers loads of online courses and modules to help existing staff improve their abilities, and Aquent also has in-house teams that can handle creative and techy tasks – it's like being able to hire a whole department at once.

Aquent is not the cheapest site, and it doesn't have the biggest database. Also bear in mind that it focuses on several key areas, like content, creative tasks, marketing, and tech. But this site places a firm focus on creativity, diversity, and equality, and it's a vital service if you'd like your business to follow suit – or if you're a freelancer who appreciates that kind of working environment.  

8. 99designs

As the name suggests, 99designs concentrates on design. If you need logos , branding, book covers or websites, this is the place to look, and this is a site you should use if you're a freelancer in any of those creative fields.

Employers can use two different methods to find talent on 99designs. You can use the traditional freelance marketing method to list a project and invite bids from freelancers, or you can pay 99designs to find you the perfect designer – ideal if you've got a firm idea of what you need.

Freelance creatives can join for free, compete in contests to bid for work, and designers are reviewed to check for their legitimacy when they join the site. There are over ninety distinctive design categories on the site, too, so you'll be able to find work no matter the field.

As usual, 99designs charges fees when you complete a job, and there are extra fees when designers start working with new clients, so this is not necessarily the cheapest site. But if you're a creative or need to find a creative and want to ensure quality work in a collaborative and encouraging environment, 99designs is worth the cost.

9. Solidgigs

There are an incredible number of freelance opportunities around, but that can be daunting and confusing. Happily, Solidgigs takes the hassle out of hunting by manually checking more than 100 freelance marketplaces to find the best opportunities.

Solidgigs aims to find the best 1% of freelance opportunities, and the site curates a list of top jobs and sends them to your inbox – so you can quickly see and bid for the best contracts.

If you're a freelancer who wants to get access to Solidgigs' hand-picked list of opportunities, though, then you'll have to pay a nominal fee. That makes it one of the only freelance sites that has an upfront cost to freelancers, but many people will find that excellent value in the face of other sites that don't hand-pick their listings.

Solidgigs is made by the people behind Millo.co, which has articles, courses, podcasts, and tools for freelancers, so there are plenty of educational opportunities here as well.

10. FlexJobs

FlexJobs is a freelancer site designed for people who want to find remote and flexible working opportunities. So while it's not a pure freelance website, it's packed to the gills with freelance positions – so it's a great option if you're an employer or a self-employed person.

Listings on this site are hand-screened for legitimacy, so you'll always find something trustworthy and relevant on FlexJobs, and jobs are listed in virtually every industry – this isn't like other sites that concentrate on techy jobs or creative opportunities. Companies receive verification too, so freelancers can be confident when people make contact.

Beyond job listings, FlexJobs offers articles, events, and career coaching sessions. You do have to pay to get the most out of this site, though – but it gives you more information, discounts on loads of products and the ability to apply for positions right there on the site.

FlexJobs doesn't focus purely on freelance roles, but its concentration on flexible working means that it has loads of them listed. Combine this with its hand-screening and verification, and you've got a trustworthy site that's well worth the money.

There aren't many bigger freelance websites than Fiverr. It's been around since 2010 and claims to be used by more than three million employers, including big companies like Netflix and Facebook.

Fiverr's sheer size means that employers can find every kind of freelancer on the site, and if you're a freelancer you'll be able to find opportunities no matter what kind of work you do. Whether you're after a long project, a small job, or anything in between, you'll be able to find it here, and at all sorts of budgets. Free listings also mean there are plenty of low-cost opportunities here too.

It's free to join the site and free to list opportunities on Fiverr, and everyone can benefit from protected payments and 24/7 support. Businesses can also pay to enjoy an upgraded package that offers verified freelancers, hand-picked talent matching, and a dashboard to manage your projects.

Fiverr has plenty going for it, not least its size, but its low barrier to entry means that you may have to sift through many unsuitable projects or freelancers before you find the right fit. Free listings also mean that Fiverr's eventual transaction fees are a little higher than many other sites.

12. Behance

Behance is one of the best websites around for creative freelancers, which is no surprise when you consider that it's owned by Adobe .

This impressive job site functions like a social network, so it's perfect for finding your next gig as well as making all-important creative connections. When you sign up you can pick your specialisms from a broad range of topics like graphic design, photography, UI design or advertising, and it's easy to build your portfolio and create mood boards – perfect for showing off your work and your style.

A custom feed of creators dominates the site, and you can search projects by their field, colors, and even the tools used. So, if you're upfront about showing off your work on your profile and in the main feed, you'll be easier to find when people are on the hunt for a new freelancer. 

You're not restricted to portfolios and mood boards, either. You can create case studies, advertise work-in-progress posts that expire in 24 hours, and even live-stream your work.

If you want to find work, you can search for jobs in hundreds of fields and disciplines. You can see each job's salaries alongside remote-working options and the rest of the job description, and you can apply right on Behance.

Behance is a top choice for any creative freelancer – there are hundreds of disciplines represented on the site, and thousands of jobs. It's free to use with basic features, but be aware that it's a competitive marketplace – no surprise when you consider the popularity of this Adobe-owned site.

13. Dribbble

If you need a capable and reliable creative freelancer, investigate Dribbble. It’s one of the best sites around for self-employed designers and artists, and it’s been used by companies like Starbucks, Facebook and Amazon.

The site has a database of more than one million worldwide creatives, and more than 60,000 businesses rely on Dribbble to find top talent.

There are two main ways to hire on Dribbble. You can pay for access to Dribbble’s job board, where you can post job listings and projects. You can include your full job description, list what kind of designer you need, and hire full-time, part-time, freelance and contract-based staff. Dribbble boasts that its listings receive an average of 1,500 clicks per month, so you’ll probably get lots of eyes on your openings.

The other monthly option enables companies to access Dribbble’s complete database of creative professionals. Take this route and you can search the entire designer database using powerful filtering, and you’ll also get unlimited messaging and the option to bookmark designers. Companies can also pay to access both features.

14. Codeable

It’s always tempting to turn to a skilled freelancer if you have specialist programming needs, and Codeable is the best choice if you need to hire a Wordpress expert to sort out your websites and CMS systems.

The site’s freelancers are all vetted before using the site, so you can be sure you’re hiring someone capable, and it’s very easy to start hiring. Companies can post any Wordpress project on the site, from quick fixes to more complex projects, and the programmers on the site can handle everything from plugin and database work to complete migrations and site development.

Most of the site’s projects receive quotes within 24 hours, and in most cases you’ll be connected to a handful of experts who can easily handle your project’s demands. Once Codable has helped you make those connections, companies can use a shared workspace to chat to the candidates about the details of the project. It’s a smart method to ensure efficient, quick communication.

An algorithm creates one price from all the programmers interested in your project – so you’re not stuck with a race to the bottom that compromises quality – and a secure payment system keeps your money safe. And that’s it. You’ll be able to hire a great Wordpress expert in record time.

Pricing varies between projects here, and you should expect hourly rates that vary. Codeable makes money with a 17.5% service charge, and companies benefit from a 28-day bug-fixing warranty and a fair refund policy.

Best freelance websites: FAQs

How to choose the best freelance website for you.

Why you can trust TechRadar We spend hours testing every product or service we review, so you can be sure you’re buying the best. Find out more about how we test.

When selecting the best freelance website, you'll want to look out for many things. 

For starters, you'll want to check what categories the platform offers and whether there are relevant opportunities for you. Then, you'll want to assess the pricing and service fees. Is there a monthly subscription or does the platform tax you whenever you're paid? As part of that, check whether the platform features built-in invoicing software to make sure you get properly paid. 

You'll definitely want to consider whether the platform has payment protection and a verification process to ensure you'll be dealing with authentic clients and freelancers. 

Lastly, look out  for the website's interface, ease of use, and customer support. 

What is a freelance website?

A freelance website is a platform where freelancers find work opportunities and clients seek out talent. 

Not all websites have the same structure, so freelancers and clients will find that the application and hiring process differs significantly from one platform to another. 

How we test the best freelance websites

To test the best freelance websites, we looked at numerous aspects. We first checked what categories of work the platform offers and if it was predominantly suited to a specific category, like design. 

Then, we looked at how popular the freelance website was and whether it had a solid payment protection system in place. We evaluated whether the platform verified its users thoroughly and what kind of pricing structure it followed. 

Focused or extra features are always explored. Some of the very best freelance websites offer online courses to help you further your career, while others offer project management tools for organizing teams and tasks. We assess how well these additional features improve both the site and assist its users.

We also considered the platform's interface and the quality of the customer support, among other things.

Technology Secretary announces investment boost making British AI supercomputing 30 times more powerful

British supercomputing to be boosted 30-fold with a new Cambridge computer and Bristol site.

uk freelance projects

  • British supercomputing to be boosted 30-fold with a new Cambridge computer and Bristol site
  • the 2 computers will form the government’s ‘ AI Research Resource’, which helps researchers discover how to make the most advanced models of AI safe and drive other breakthroughs
  • this comes as the UK opens its AI Safety Summit at Bletchley Park, to consider the risks of AI and discuss their mitigation through international action

The government’s Frontier AI Taskforce and leading British researchers will be equipped with cutting edge supercomputers to analyse the safety of advanced AI models, thanks to new investment in the ‘ AI Research Resource’.

The tool will build and connect 2 new supercomputers across the UK, giving researchers access to resources with more than 30-times the capacity of the UK’s current largest public AI computing tools. They will be able to use the machines, which will be running from summer 2024, to analyse advanced AI models to test safety features and drive breakthroughs in drug discovery and clean energy.

The investment into the AI Research Resource has been tripled to £300 million, up from £100 million announced in March 2023, in a bid to further boost UK AI capabilities.

This will bolster Isambard- AI , which will be Britain’s most advanced computer. Based at the University of Bristol, it is set to be 10 times faster than the UK’s current quickest machine, thanks to 5,000 advanced AI chips from Nvidia in a supercomputer built by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).

The investment will also connect Isambard- AI to a newly announced Cambridge supercomputer called ‘Dawn’. This computer – delivered through a partnership with Dell and UK SME StackHPC – will be powered by over 1000 Intel chips that use water-cooling to reduce power consumption. It is set to be running in the next 2 months and target breakthroughs in fusion energy, healthcare and climate modelling.

Chaired by Ian Hogarth, the Frontier AI Taskforce will have priority access to the connected computing tools to support its work to mitigate the risks posed by the most advanced forms of AI , including national security from the development of bioweapons and cyberattacks. The resource will also support the work of the AI Safety Institute, as it develops a programme of research looking at the safety of frontier AI models and supports government policy with this analysis.

Announcing this investment at the AI Safety Summit at Bletchley Park, Science, Innovation and Technology Secretary Michelle Donelan said:

Frontier AI models are becoming exponentially more powerful. At our AI Safety Summit in Bletchley Park, we have made it clear that Britain is grasping the opportunity to lead the world in adopting this technology safely so we can put it to work and lead healthier, easier and longer lives. This means giving Britain’s leading researchers and scientific talent access to the tools they need to delve into how this complicated technology works. That is why we are investing in building UK’s supercomputers, making sure we cement our place as a world-leader in AI safety.

Bristol’s Isambard- AI computer, first announced in September , will be backed by a £225 million investment.

The supercomputer, 10 times faster than the UK’s current fastest machine, will deliver over 200 ‘petaflops’, meaning it can make 200,000,000,000,000,000 calculations (that’s 200 quadrillion) every second. By comparison, the newest smartphones today deliver only trillions of calculations per second, and a human would have to make a decision every second for 6.3 billion years to match what this computer can calculate in one second.

Funded woodland advice available through the PIES project

Gabrriel Hemery

What is the PIES project?

PIES (Protect Improve Expand Sustain) is a government-funded project. It is providing a network of independent woodland experts to deliver high-quality free advice to landowners across England.

The project aims to support landowners in bringing existing woodland back into management and to support woodland creation projects. Farmers and landowners taking part in the project receive free advice, including a site visit and customised report, plus ongoing online support and technical services.

A PIES advisor stands with a landowner in a field showing him paperwork he has in his hand

Launched last year, the PIES project has already approved more than 91 fully-funded advisory visits to landowners and farmers across England. Applications to access this support are now open thanks to further funding from the Forestry Commission.

The PIES offer has been carefully pitched to support landowners as they take the first step in bringing existing woodlands into management, or as they consider creating new woodlands. Those who receive the free advisory visit are subsequently eligible to apply for further financial support, for example through the England Woodland Creation Offer (EWCO).

PIES project to date

91 advice visits underway

3,157ha assessed

114ha of new woodland proposed

463ha of woodland in active management

The Free Advisory Visit

The free advice and site visit helps landowners to develop outline plans for existing woodlands, and plans and budgets for new tree planting. The first step for successful applicants is to choose who to work with, selected from a choice of three local expert providers offered by the Forest Canopy Foundation.

A PIES advsior holding paperwork

The PIES expert providers have found the process rewarding as it has connected them with new clients and provided them with sufficient time to help them discover more detail about the aims and ambitions of their new clients.

PIES was a great process, helping me provide a clear direction to a family business interested in both woodland management and creation.

The PIES expert provider initially gathers information, maps and plans on behalf of the client, and then agrees the time and scope of a site advisory visit.

Following the initial advice and visit, digital plans and maps will be shared with the landowner via a free account on the myForest platform run by Sylva Foundation. The platform provides ongoing support to the landowner, while simplifying the process of applying for government incentives and meeting regulatory requirements.

Another valuable part of the PIES offer is the Grown in Britain Forest Certification which is offered free for one year, supporting eligible landowners in making the most of their woodland resource.

A Derbyshire Case Study

Landowner Phil knew that he wanted to plant some trees on his farm in Derbyshire. His initial idea was to buy some trees (he thought maybe 200) and involve local schools to help out with planting.

He happened to attend an agricultural show while on holiday in Cornwall when he visited a Forestry Commission stand. With permission, his details were subsequently passed on to a local Woodland Officer in Derbyshire. After the Woodland Officer sent him comprehensive information he successfully applied for the PIES project to get further help.

He was then paired with local private woodland agent Charles Robinson which proved to be just what he needed to help him get his project off the ground. With help from Charles, Phil then applied for the England Woodland Creation Offer (EWCO) with a nature recovery supplement.

When I first started out thinking about planting trees, the language was alien and it was hard to know where to start. PIES funding provided me with the early advice to highlight opportunities and gave me a clear idea on how this could work out financially. Without PIES funding my 4ha scheme would not be going ahead.

Phil says he was unlikely to have ever invested in receiving the advice which subsequently proved so helpful in progressing his plans. PIES support provided him with important early advice to highlight opportunities and has given him clarity on how his plans could work out financially. Phil is clear that without PIES funding, his 4ha woodland creation scheme would not be going ahead.

How to Apply for PIES support

Eligible landowners include those with existing woodland that do not have a current management plan in place, and/or any landowner interested in creating new woodland on their land. The offer is available only to landowners in England. The PIES online application process has been designed to be simple and straightforward.

To find out more about the PIES project and apply visit: www.sylva.org.uk/pies .

Further information on the PIES project

The project is funded by the Trees Call to Action Fund, developed by Defra in partnership with the Forestry Commission and administered by the Heritage Fund. The PIES project aims to support the delivery of the government’s England Trees Action Plan at scale across the country, by:

  • expanding and connecting woodlands
  • promoting green economy
  • protecting and improving woodlands

PIES is led by a partnership between three organisations: Sylva Foundation, Forest Canopy Foundation, and Grown in Britain. The partnership is working closely with the Forestry Commission and the National Farmers’ Union to deliver the project for three years (2022-25).
