Freelancing is growing in ‘traditional’ job categories.

Where technology, marketing and design have long led the way, we have seen a 63% increase in signups to the Malt platform for more ‘traditional’ job types - think support, sales and business development roles for example.

Freelancers are a highly-skilled, specialized talent pool that can bring value to all companies, large and small

The data suggests SMEs are leading adopters of freelancer collaboration. However, in Germany, 20% of the freelancers we surveyed work regularly with large corporations (vs. 14% for France and 5% for Spain). Being at the forefront of innovation, freelancers can be a source of inspiration for all companies, of all sizes.
