Does anyone have an idea how to create a site like freelancer.co.uk? I have an idea but have no clue about web design or coding

Is it that you like the layout of freelancer.co.uk especially and want your site to look like that?
I've found squarespace a really useful websiyte builder, have you tried that already?
Pioneer Rafael @roominthemoon has some really good advice on website builders!

Thanks for the reply! No it's more about the functionality. I just don't have a clue how much it would cost to build a website like that. Or who is need to contact to find out.

Web design and development can vary in costs depending on how much work needs to be put into a website and there are so many web design companies available, it can seem quite overwhelming when it comes to chosing the right one.
You could simply find some companies and just call them and explain what your looking for and get some quotes plus sites like Freelancer, send them a message and simply ask who designed their site if it's more about the functionality.
Another option is to do this yourself and some won't require any web design or HTML/CSS coding experience like www.wix.com which has ready made templates to use and a drag and drop system where you just fill in the details.
Hope this helps.

Sites like Wix and Squarespace are pretty much drag-and-drop affairs, designed primarily for people who want good looking sites without all the fuss. It sort of feels like working with Powerpoint, only it's had a Red Bull and rolled around in glitter. There's a fair amount of functionality on offer, however if they don't do it, then you will probably need to consult someone who knows what they're doing. You can have a 2 week free trial with Squarespace to have a look and play around. You may find it gets 90% of the way there without coding. There are specialists reccomended by Squarespace that may be able fill that small gap for you, rather than having someone do the whole thing from scratch.
For most situations I'll second Megan on Squarespace.

The site looks like it could have been put together in Wordpress. I'm not saying it is, but I am saying there are themes and plugins available that could let you do something very much like that pretty easily. You may need to pay for some of the plugins, or hire a coder to help, but could be a place to look?
I do all of my stuff in WP as I find it very easy to use, and impressively powerful! And all I pay for is my hosting.

Some great suggestions here already!
@aaronclarke88 if you are looking to have an e-commerce aspect to the site, I would recommend checking out Shopify. It's got a huge amount of themes and the UX is very friendly for anyone who's not used to any code. The backend of it is also really smart and easy to navigate!

A complicated website might need customed built, but you could easily make a prototype in Wix.com Squarespace.com you could create something quite bespoke in wordpress too!
