Last night we attended the Freelancer of the Year awards in London’s glamorous West End. The annual event, now in its seventh year, is run by recruitment agency Xchangeteam. The 2011 awards turned out to be the biggest yet, with more entries from all sectors than ever before.

As part of our continuing effort to nurture, support and engage the UK’s freelance community we offered up a full year of Crunch for free to the overall winner, which this year was Sheena Hobbs, a Marketing and Communication Consultant from Guildford. Sheena was singled out for special praise for developing a killer marketing campaign, which received national coverage on a very limited budget.

The event was attended by representatives from the PCG and freelancers from across the board – we’d like to congratulate all the nominees and winners, and thank Xchangeteam for another fantastic event!
