What is the freelance economy?

The freelance economy, or the gig economy, is described as economic activity related to short term, project based work – and it’s booming in Australia and globally.

Those working within it or planning a move to working in this arena describe themselves as consultants, freelancers or contractors but they all share a desire to work independently.

Freelancers can work across almost any industry providing their personal expertise and skills to add value to their clients.
