Working for Yourself

Every year around 16% of new UCA graduates enter self-employment as freelancers or business start-ups.

Business options

Most people who work for themselves will work as freelancers or sole traders, who do not employ staff. This is simplest way to start, with the least amount of obligations.

Portfolio working

A common work pattern for people in the creative industries is to have more than one job. This has become known as ‘portfolio working’. Some do it by necessity – they need a stable job while, for example, building up their freelance work; while others enjoy the versatility and variety of having multiple jobs.
