The most common rate for all freelancers operating in this discipline was £301-£350 per day in 2019, a similar level to the overall average of £374 per day. The top 10% of day rates in the discipline was at least £550 per day, indicating that those with specific desired skills or expertise can command a significantly higher day rate.

There are several reasons why now might be the time to hire a data freelancer. This includes:
Time — Hiring a freelancer gives you both the flexibility in working hours (evenings and weekends), and the ability to do work at very short notice.
Skills/knowledge — Data freelancers can easily understand and interpret data to help showcase data and make predictions, without the need to hire an industry specific expert. You can also hire a freelancer based on their experience and the industries in which they’ve worked, to help bring more insight to your business.
Ideas — A fresh set of ideas on a problem cannot be underestimated. An advantage of engaging with a freelancer, who does not work for your company, means they won’t have any preconceived notions about how things should or shouldn’t work.
Results Driven — Not only are freelancers very, success is very important to them. They want to provide results on time and within budget, as a big driver of their work is word of mouth and recommendations.
