More opportunities have arisen for freelancers to work multiple jobs – but this career choice requires careful planning

In a world of Uber and Deliveroo, the gig economy is thriving – it is estimated 1.3 million people are now working two jobs or more. Such workers are sometimes called “slashies” – think barista/blogger, charity worker/Uber driver or SEO manager/delivery biker.

Many in this category can be classed as freelancers, a group that has increased in number by 43% in less than a decade, according to a recent survey by IPSE. The group is diverse: almost half are aged between 40 and 59 and 20% are over the age of 60. One in seven freelancers is also a working mother.
