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

    Hi After searching, I thought I may as well ask the question...Are there any non-IT contractors on here and is any part of the forum dedicated to these? Also, does anyone know a good link or site that gives realistic estimates of contractor day rates equivalent to a given permie rate? W.E.
