Re: Cycle Instructor Roles


Freelance = self employed?
Do you realise how little that is compared with being employed?
It would struggle to come up to minimum wage.....

No sick pay

Pay own NI & Income tax

No holiday pay

No works pension

No contract of employment

No tea breaks

That's a teaching / training with experience....................

I know ex druggies straight off Princes Trust who earn £ 25 per hour and all them holidays for working in school time. as coaches.

Please don't respond from a position of ignorance based on generalities and what is often poorly reported. If you have questions, then ask them!

The arrangement described by Outspoken works for plenty of people, including me! Whilst you don't have a Contract of Employment, you do have a Contract and being self-employed can work if you want flexibility as an individual. Not all organisations are the same.
