Data for rates in the project management category

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 top 10% of project length was over six months (129 working days) – the highest average amongst all disciplines.
