With the consistent rise of self-employment, which has increased once again according to the latest ONS statistics released this week, the 15 for 2015 competition has launched at the perfect time to find Britain’s best independent business minds.
Ian Murray, Shadow Business Minister and MP for Edinburgh South, said “This is an exciting competition that will highlight the very best of those who are self-employed. It is incredibly rewarding being self-employed and there are significant advantages - the chance to be your own boss, grow your own business and be entrepreneurial. I look forward to seeing the winners of the 15 for 2015 competition.”
Louis Clark, spokesman for the 15 for 2015 competition, said “Almost half a million enterprising individuals have made the brave choice to go it alone in the last year alone and it is fantastic to see that our growing sector is endorsed so enthusiastically by Mr Murray. To receive support from Parliament shows that Britain is really starting to get behind Britain’s self-employed army.”
