Project Management freelancers earned on average £335 per day on projects in the discipline in 2019, the most common day rate range was at a similar level of £250-350 per day showing that there are more standardised day rates for freelancers within this field.
I decide my rate via research, and advice from colleagues and line managers. As I’ve progressed in my career the biggest contributor to improving my rate is reliability - I have found that people pay more for freelancers they know and trust.
The project length was high compared to other disciplines at 52 working days on average. The top 10% of project length was over six months (129 working days) – the highest average amongst all disciplines. This will be explained by the complexity of certain projects demanding a longer involvement for freelancers.
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 project manager experts have been manually vetted by our dedicated onboarding team to ensure they have the right skills and experience to be considered an elite freelancer.
