The most comprehensive study on freelancer day rates and project lengths in the UK design 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 day rate range was £250-350 per day and the top 10% was over £375 per day, both being close to the overall average (£315 per day). The closeness of the averages and top 10% shows that there are more standardised rates for freelancers being applied within the sector.
Be confident in your abilities. Everyone wants a bargain, but the bargain is securing work where your skill set will be appreciated, then you can charge your rate. Be confident in your skills too, your abilities should match what you are charging.
With a large range of roles and responsibilities within the discipline, the average job length in 2019 was approximately three weeks (14 working days) and the top 10%, six weeks (31 working days). These are shorter contracts compared to other disciplines, demonstrating projects can be planned more precisely and require freelancers to make immediate impact.
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.
Each of our freelance designers have been manually vetted by our dedicated onboarding team to ensure they have the right skills and experience to be considered an elite Freelancer, ensuring the highest calibre within our marketplace. Each designer has their own profile page that outlines their skills and experience, giving you the opportunity to review this information, to ensure you are hiring a designer with the right background for your project.
