The most comprehensive study on freelancer day rates and project lengths in the UK data industry, by the country's leading marketplace of premium talent.
YunoJuno is committed to providing a new level of transparency to both freelancers and companies alike. The following data is from our 2019/20 Freelancer Rates Report - a study based on over 25,000 bookings on the YunoJuno platform in 2019.DOWNLOAD FULL REPORT
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. The tase in demand for data and insights across multiple industries, as companies look for data-driven gains, further support the acceleration in rates within this field.
I like contracts to be no longer than 3 months, as it allows me to rotate my skill set constantly. All projects have different tech stacks and challenges, so being involved in longer projects helps prevent burn-out and the feeling of being left behind in emerging technologies.
The average project length in 2019 as a data freelancer was nearly three months (52 working days). The need for freelancers in this field provides one of the longest average project lengths amongst all YunoJuno disciplines.
Implementing YunoJuno has taken much of the manual management out of this system, reducing administrative workload and improving operational efficiency.
Hugely impressed by YunoJuno’s model. Concise communication flow allowed us to filter and interview within hours. Enabling us to work with excellent freelancers we wouldn’t have otherwise found. Game-changing.
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.
