In this post i am going to talk about the practices in the Media industry.

 

Freelance media Jobs.

A freelancer is somebody who doesn’t work for one company full time. But is hired by different companies.

  • The Highlights

Whilst being a freelancer you can negotiate with your own rates with the companies who hire you.  You can gain well experiences and have more money you can ask for.

  • The Downsides

There are so many Freelancers currently working out there today . You can’t be just good. You will have to market yourself and make high contacts because either that or no one will hire you.

You will need to manage your own money . You will get a regular paycheque  by month but you will also have to make the tax and the National Insurance. You will have to remember how to keep some of the money.

According to

http://www.startupdonut.co.uk/startup/set-up-a-business/setting-up-a-limited-company

A limited company is a seperate legal entity and as such , legally, it’s responsible for it’s own actions . To an extent being a private limited company might make you more credible to potential customers, partners or investors.
