Description

Learn the secrets of successful IT contracting. This course will get you up-and-running with minimal fuss: I'll tell you exactly what you need to know in this series of in-depth video lessons.

  • Finding contracting

  • The secrets that earn interviews and win at them

  • Negotiating day rates and renewals to get more

  • How expenses work

  • Being IR35 compliant
