Welcome to the 2021 Gender Equality Report

Welcome to this year’s UK For Everyone Report. Since its incorporation, YunoJuno has held the belief that transparency not only helps inform the decision making process of both freelancers and hirers alike, it also drives the future of work forward. That's why this report is a free resource to all.

No required email before downloading. No catch.

Why this matters

Freelancers are doing work that will be seen by billions of people. So, as an industry, we have a duty to ensure that we’re creating work that influences a culture we are proud of. And even if we at YunoJuno can’t affect the work that gets made, we can highlight where there is room to level the playing field by showcasing great creative and tech talent regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, or beliefs. In doing so, we can help the freelance community and client network logging on to YunoJuno access to a talent pool as diverse as the people they will influence.

This is the motivation behind this report and we are proud to champion equality in every way. For everyone.

Christine Richter, Creative Operations Manager

We haven’t used a recruiter in ages, working closely with the YunoJuno Talent team we moved to sourcing 100% via the YJ Marketplace.

Marie Brittain, Resource Manager

YunoJuno have been brilliant in identifying remote working freelancers who always deliver. From first introductions and telephone calls, to brief discussions and final delivery, the key has been good, clear and honest communication.

Nick Astor, Content Strategy & Execution Lead

The freelancers on YunoJuno are consistently of the highest calibre. It is also the easiest and most transparent recruitment service I have ever dealt with.

Christian Anderson-Ramshall, Head of Digital Production

Implementing YunoJuno has taken much of the manual management out of this system, reducing administrative workload and improving operational efficiency. The way we on-board and pay our valued freelancers is now a totally different experience.

Dan de Lord, Talent Strategy & Acquisition Director

YunoJuno are my recruitment saviours! I’ve worked with them for a few years now and they’ve helped with many resourcing challenges. The platform is really easy to use, it provides a wide range of freelancers to interact with and also means I’m only dealing with one vendor – which makes my internal financing hassle free!

Steph Fair, Creative Services Manager

Freelance support can be a great option for your business. It gives you the advantage of flexibility and the power to hire specialist expertise when it’s truly needed. Independent contractors can be self managing and great additions to the team.

Claire, Head of Design

The YunoJuno team have been super helpful and helped me find a talented engineer to support our MVP build in no time at all!
