Need to know: What should a digital or tech contractor charge in the South West?
Tech and digital freelancers often have difficulty in finding out the answer to the question ‘How much should I charge for my work?’, so, to help out, local tech recruiter ADLIB’s has created a Digital Technology Freelance Day Rate Guide for Bristol & Bath.
“The rates in the guide are based on our experience and contract roles that we’ve helped our clients with over the past year”
The idea behind producing the report came via a chance conversation at a networking event at Bristol’s coworking space Desklodge. As Mike Harley from ADLIB tells us: “At a recent Women’s Tech Hub Free Three Friday event one of our team got chatting – during the coffee break, as you do – about the fact that as a tech freelancer it can be a challenge to know where to pitch yourself when applying and quoting for work, especially when you’re starting out.

“The rates in the guide are based on our experience and contract roles that we’ve helped our clients with over the past year. It is a rough guide, but hopefully a good starting point when finding and setting your own day rates.”
So if you are a developer, tester or devoper, this report will be a great place to work out some ballpark figures for what you should be charging.
