There has never been a more exciting, or uncertain, time to be a self-employed worker. As the world changes around us, new opportunities are opening up everyday and Prospect is here to help you to forge a strong path into the future, as well as support you in your career now . 

Across our Prospect and Bectu sectors we provide support, resources and expertise to over 20,000 self-employed members. We ensure that our members have the same work place support as everyone else and advise them on workplace topics and issues. We provide:

  • Independent, impartial advice on issues such as discrimination or tax.
  • Negotiated deals on insurance and other financial products which can save you significant sums of money in the long run.
  • Guidance on dealing with the admin side of things, so your job doesn’t turn into a nightmare of stress and paperwork.
  • Ensuring that you’re treated fairly by temporary employers, including chasing monies owed.
  • Fighting for a new deal for freelancers and the self-employed.

We believe that we’re stronger when we come together and share knowledge and support.
