  6. Newbie here....is Is there a section for non-IT contractors?

  16. Joe says hey

    I've done some contracting in the past but not for the past few years and not, now that I think about it, in the UK. (I spent many years in a faraway country known for gold, good wine, and crime.) Need to get back into and navigate the questions of umbrella companies and so on. So ... hi all!
