Self Employment

There are many reasons to consider self-employment, including:
  • You can be your own boss
  • Work more flexibly
  • You may have a higher salary
But there are downsides too, including:

  • Lack of employee benefitsĀ such as sick pay and holiday pay
  • Possible longĀ  working hours
  • Responsibility for your tax returns
  • Unpredictable finances
Connexions can signpost you to organisations who can support and guide you. This includes organisations like the Princes Trust and Sweda.
