UK IT Careers Services

Find jobs that aren't advertised
Many jobs are never advertised - especially those at higher rates. We can help you connect with our established a network of top IT employers and recruiters to access the 'hidden job market' and secure the best jobs.

Create a standout UK contractor CV that gets to the top of recruiters' lists
A concise, professional CV is an essential marketing tool when entering into the competitive UK contracting market. Sadly, many CVs are never read. We can improve your success by helping you adapt and refine your CV for every IT job you apply for, ensuring you present your skills and experience in the best possible light. This service can be bought as a standalone package for £250 +VAT but is offered free to all who choose to find work with us.

Develop your personal brand and marketing plan
We will give you the tools and tips to market yourself and stand out in the London IT contracting market. You'll get help defining your core competencies and how to differentiate yourself when applying for jobs, marketing your skills, and attending interviews. We will also expose your CV on your behalf via our contractor mailing list and other networks.

Get advice on contract selection and negotiation to earn better rates
We want to help you avoid settling for average contracts below your ability and earnings potential. We'll help you secure contracts that achieve your career goals, and assist with negotiating the best possible rates and terms. We will also run credit checks on employers and check contracts for compliance.


Enjoy our central London office services
Our London office is based in Leicester Square where you will be provided with a desk, internet, phone and printers to use during your job search, giving you the tools you need to stay competitive, while keeping your costs down. You'll be supported by our team of experienced consultants and have opportunity to socialise with our other IT contractors.

Benefit from ongoing career development
Throughout the time you work with us you will have access to a personal career coach who will help you determine how best to achieve your career goals and find suitable work opportunities. Contractors who stay with us for more than one contract will also be eligible for additional free and subsidised training packages.

Get help with Limited Company setup
You will receive Independent Limited Co (PSC) professional advice from qualified chartered accountants who will help you choose the business structure that best suits your visa requirements and earnings.  If you earn over £250 per day, we will set you up as a Limited Company for free.

Get free umbrella services
Our optional free PAYE umbrella services provide you with easy, hassle-free management of payroll and taxes. Just send us your time-sheets and we’ll handle the rest.

Get help with UK tax compliance
We will help you determine whether your contract falls inside or outside of the government's IR35 legislation and give you guidance on maximising your income whilst staying compliant with UK law.

Get help claiming back relocation expenses
Created especially for new arrivals (either contractors or permanent consultants), this allows you to reclaim your travel costs to the UK and get one return flight home per year.  You can deduct up to £8,000 over your first two years.
