The most comprehensive study on freelancer day rates and project lengths in the UK QA/testing 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 average day rate for freelancers working in QA / Testing in 2019 was £313 per day with the most common range being £250-350 per day. Those in the top 10% of the discipline earned at least £470 per day indicating that those with specifically desired expertise can command a significantly higher day rate.
If the project represents a great opportunity I’m more flexible with my rate as I recognise the experience will give me more rate leverage in the future.
In this specifically skilled discipline, there was the largest disparity between project lengths. The average length in 2019 was approximately seven weeks (34 working days) but project’s in the top 10% ran for nearly seven months (144 days). This reveals the level of assurance required by clients on large complex and transformative projects and thus significantly elongates a freelancer’s stay with a client.
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 testing 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.
