FAQs

When was Freelancers in the UK established?

Freelancers in the UK (FLITUK) was established in 2005 by the original owner Katie Kirk. After a successful ten years, the site was acquired by Full Media Ltd in late 2015. The site was relaunched in early 2016 as a responsive website with many new functions.

How does the search bar work?

Our new search bar has two functions. You can either search by keyword using the left-hand search bar, or you can select a freelancer category in the second search bar. For even more precise search results, you can use both search bars at once!

To add a listing simply go to the home page and hit the ‘Add Listing” button! You will then be prompted to register with us (this bit is free) and then you can add all the information you want to your business listing.

How long does a listing last?

Your listing will remain live on the site for a year. When your 365 days is up you can simply log in, pay for another year and your listing will go live again!

Can I only list my business under one category?

No, we appreciate that the modern freelancer tends to have multiple skills, so we allow our members to pick up to five categories.

No problem! Just let us know what category you’d like to go under and we will happily add it.

You will then be asked to register for the site. Once registered, you can post your freelancer project or job by simply filling out the online form.
