PCG is set to hold an event for female freelancers called the Women’s Freelance Network.
Taking place on the 29 May, at Club Workspace in Chancery Lane, the drop-in event aims to create a space for freelancers, entrepreneurs and independent professionals.
PCG, is a representative body for independent professionals and freelancers.
Research by the body found a spoke in the number of female freelancers with four out of ten freelancers now women. According to the research freelancing mothers have increased by 24% from 2011 to 2013.
Julie Stewart, chairman of PCG, said: “The purpose of the Women’s Freelance Network is to provide a platform for freelance women to come together with like-minded individuals and share tips, advice and experiences in a relaxed environment.”
“More and more women are choosing this way of working. It is a positive career choice whether you are a mother looking to find the right work/life balance or a successful businesswoman frustrated within the confines of working for someone else.”
The event will be the first in a series due to be held across the UK, offering networking opportunities for female freelancers.
Stewart added: “Running your own independent business is challenging and it can be lonely. Having a supportive network of fellow female independent professionals means that going solo in business no longer means being alone.”
“These events will also be a great opportunity to get advice from the experts on everything you need to know if you are considering going solo. If you are thinking about taking the plunge and starting a business the event will be a great opportunity to learn everything you need to know to get started.”
