Fiverr is an online marketplace where employers can find freelancers. The site has varied pricing as price packages are set by freelancers, allowing employers to filter their search results by budget. The platform itself is free to use.
Unfortunately, Fiverr does not have a dedicated page for U.K.-based freelancers, or for freelancers who specialize in U.K. accents, finances, and more. However, if you change the currency to £, you can view all the freelancers' prices in pounds sterling.

Fiverr vs. YunoJuno:
YunoJuno caters to U.K.-based freelancers and connects them with local and international jobs. However, while it allows international employers to find freelancers, YunoJuno is more geared towards U.K. employers with IR35 compliance help. Fiverr, by contrast, does not offer a dedicated U.K. page.
Fiverr vs. If You Could Jobs:
Unlike Fiverr, If You Could Jobs is dedicated to the U.K. workforce in art, media, design, and other creative industries. They offer set pricing for posting a job on the site and cater to both freelance and permanent positions. Fiverr caters strictly to freelance projects and is free to use.
Fiverr vs. LinkedIn:
LinkedIn is a professional social network that advertises a wide range of general roles. In comparison, Fiverr primarily caters to the creative and tech industries, and may be the better option for hiring candidates on a project basis. While Fiverr has set pricing for posting a job, LinkedIn offers a free posting plan.
