In the ten years+ that notonthehighstreet.com has been going, we’ve been lucky to work with thousands of the nation’s most exciting small creative businesses. Now, across the UK, as more and more people turn to self-employment, this is spurring a nation of creative entrepreneurs who are not only delivering billions to our economy but who are redefining the world of work. These businesses – many run by women – are rewriting the rule book; turning their backs on the traditional ‘9 to 5’ in favour of flexibility and an altogether more fulfilling and happier work/life blend. Over the last few months we have been working with Oxford Economics on research to explore these themes and better understand the economic and social impact of small creative businesses in the UK. We hope you enjoy reading our report.
