The freelance jobs market is a competitive space and with a predicted increase in the number of new freelancers joining the sector, a strong job application has never been as important. In this workshop, Peter Fitzpatrick, Founder of Lilium, provides insights into the art of the job proposal and shows you how to increase your chances of landing the job.
You’ve been furloughed and your employment prospects aren’t looking great. You’ve probably been trawling through job sites day and night applying for anything and everything you can find. You’re stressed, worried and funds are low. This is not a pleasant situation to be in.

One of the most important aspects of being an ally and showing solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement is recognising when it is (or, more crucially, isn’t) your turn to speak. As a white person, I appreciate that I have never personally had to deal with systemic racism or racial microaggressions. For this reason, I would never want to speak on behalf of people of colour regarding these issues. Rather, we wanted to hear the perspectives of black creatives in the freelance game, in the hopes of promoting greater empathy, understanding and allyship within the world of freelancing. We spoke to two awesome photographers, who shared their thoughts and experiences.
