Figures published today by IPSE, the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self-Employed, show that 320,000 people have a so-called ‘side hustle’ – a second self-employed job.


Commenting on the figures, Deputy Head of Research at IPSE, Chloe Jepps said:

“The majority of people who start a side-hustle are making a choice to fit work around their lifestyle and dreams. The internet has enabled more varied working, connecting people with ideas and opportunities.

“Part-time self-employment allows people to be innovative and take some risks, starting businesses that could grow into a great success. This is a group that makes a huge contribution to the economy and needs to be supported with simple things like a clear tax system and good broadband infrastructure.”
