Gone are the days of office jobs and one-week holidays during the summer, as a growing number of professionals switch to a more flexible way of life. As of April 2021, there are approximately 4.35 million self-employed workers in the United Kingdom, according to statista.com, and remote work is transforming the UK labour market. Since there is no need to sit in an office from 9 to 5, professionals are creating more balance in their lives by travelling and working remotely.
But, travelling the world can be expensive, especially when withdrawing cash from ATMs and exchanging money into local currency using a traditional high-street bank. But that’s where Spondula is different!
As the UK is undoubtedly heading towards a cashless society, more Brits are choosing to open online bank accounts over traditional high-street chains. Looking at 2020s third quarter (1 July – 30 September), online digital banks, including Starling Bank and Monzo, made net gains of 12,652 and 9,157 customers respectively, while traditional high street banks, Barclays, HSBC, NatWest and Santander all made net losses, according to finder.com This shift from old-school banking to modern and flexible online transactions is helping fuel the growing number of freelancers in the UK and around the world.
