Updated March 03, 2018 12:21:24 A new study has revealed the best way to get a raise as a freelance journalist is to calculate the salary of your next gig.
The study of over 3,000 freelancers by the British Association of Journalists found that the average freelance journalist earned around £50,000 in 2014, but the figure is expected to jump to £65,000 by 2020.
The pay rise that was most popular was the one for senior management and management consulting positions, which averaged nearly £80,000, the study found.
There were some big surprises, too.
For example, there was a big increase in the number of freelance journalists who made more than £100,000 a year, from a little over 4% to over 10%.
And the survey found that there was almost no overlap between the top earners in the top five paid jobs.
For instance, the most popular pay rises were for senior executives, but they were less popular than the ones for junior staff and consultants.

What does it mean?
The study found that freelance journalists were earning less than other professional workers in the UK.
And, as a result, they were making less money.
For every £100 that a freelancer earned in 2014-15, the average pay was £20 less than a typical UK worker earning the same amount in the same year.
In 2020, that is expected of all freelancers.
The BAIJ study found the main drivers for this trend were the low salaries of managers and consultants, the fact that they were earning more in higher-paid jobs, and the rise in the costs of managing freelancers’ jobs.
However, the survey also found that it was the freelance journalists that were most likely to make more money in the future, by taking on more freelance work.
That was due to their increased knowledge of their industry and their ability to manage and market their work.
As a result of this, they had higher expectations for their career, said the study’s author, James Clark.
The freelance journalist’s salary was also lower than the average salary for senior managers, who earned around $80,400 a year.
However this was offset by the fact they earned more money on average.
A senior manager can earn up to $150,000 (about £84,000) a year as the head of an organisation.
The average senior manager in the BAIZ survey earns between $70,000 and $90,000 ($100,700 and $125,000), and their average weekly pay is around $160,000.
The researchers believe that this is a major reason why more freelance journalists are finding success in their chosen career.
For freelance journalists, this means that they are also able to take on more freelancing, which can have a big impact on their overall income.
For freelancers, the key is to stay motivated and make the right decisions.
This could be a job in your future, or you could consider becoming a freelancing teacher.
