Who are the self-employed?

The labour market is changing.  One in seven people now work for themselves, and the recovering strength of the labour market is in part down to the growing number of people who are self-employed. Across England and Wales Citizens Advice now helps 30,000 people per year with self-employment issues.

Citizens Advice has worked with the New Policy Institute to find out more about the growth in this diverse population. The result is the ‘Who are the Self-employed’ report which contains findings in three broad themes:

  • The who, what and where of self-employment
  • Income and security for the self-employed

  • Pensions, savings and the longevity of self-employment
