BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND, April 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- MJ Experia Marketing offers freelance and contract opportunities within the event sales and marketing industry. Managing director Matt Wassall attests that the advantages of using freelancers run both ways, with significant benefits afforded to both companies and freelancers. The freelancing site www.freelanceuk.com reports that for hiring companies, freelancers offer a cost-effective alternative to permanent employees. Companies are not required to pay for holiday pay or national insurance, for example, a saving which usually enables them to pay freelancers more than an employee working on the same project. Freelancers come equipped with specialist skills than an in-house team may not have; the cost of hiring a freelancer for a specialised task saves considerable time and money training an in-house team to do the same project. Flexibility is a considerable advantage that freelance workers have over employees - not only does this allow companies to hire freelance workers as and when required, but freelancers have more freedom in choosing working hours and holidays. This means that freelancers can fit work around family commitments if necessary, and can work on a variety of projects with different companies.

"Some would argue that freelancing offers less security than full-time employment, and it's true that it doesn't offer employee benefits like holiday and sick pay. However, an employee's job is dependent on the success of the company they work for, whereas a freelance worker who has a number of clients will still have work coming in even if one company goes under. So it's no surprise that freelancing has become an increasingly popular option in the UK," says Matt Wassall, managing director of MJ Experia Marketing. Last week, the Office of National Statistics reported that 4.5 million people in the UK are currently working as self-employed. The independent professionals association PGC reported in 2012 that contractors and freelancers contributed an estimated GBP100 billion to the UK economy, with the sector having grown by 12% since 2008. Forbes reports that in previous years, freelancing would increase as the economy slowed, and slow down as the economy picked up. However, freelancing has continued to grow over the last 12 months, even as the economy has improved. Forbes predicts the freelancing industry to continue to grow over 2014, as larger corporations become involved in what was largely the preserve of small and medium-sized enterprises.
"With the advantages that are afforded both to individuals and companies, we predict that freelancing will continue to define how business is done in coming years," says Matt Wassall, managing director of MJ Experia Marketing.
