Self Employment

There are plenty of reasons to consider self-employment, such as:

  • You can be your own boss
  • work more flexibly
  • You may have a higher salary

But there are downsides too, including:

  • Lack of employee benefits such as sick pay and holiday pay
  • Possible long  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.
