Public Value Event – Self-Employment

06/03/2018, 17:00 - 19:00

Two in five of the new jobs created in Wales over the past ten years have been in self-employment. Does this point to growing micro-entrepreneurship or is it a symptom of growth in the so-called “gig economy”? This event will draw on the recent Federation of Small Businesses’ Going Solo report and explore the experience of self-employment in terms of changing business models and decent work.

Join us to work out how we can enhance the experience of self-employment in Wales.
