We have created the beginnings of a database of the freelance rates of pay around the UK a couple of years ago, including overtime & weekend rates, to gauge what institutions are paying so we can approach them to pay us more with the help of the new Rates Guidance.


Below is the database in all its shining glory. Can you please check it and let us know if anything is not correct or if we need to include anyone before it is published far and wide in the coming month. If there are amendments needed please email these to

Privacy: The Bectu Art Technicians will publicise this data anonymously to highlight pay discrepancies but to also feed into a discussion around setting minimum and recommended rates in the sector. BECTU is a sector of Prospect. The union's privacy policy is available here:
