Ultimate IT contractor guide

Leaving a steady job to become an IT contractor - or IT consultant - can be a liberating move, breaking you out of the 9-5 workday routine and giving you the autonomy to work when and where you want to. You’re the master of your own fate, but with that freedom comes a number of challenges and a lot of unknowns.

Should you be a contractor or a consultant? What about a limited company or a sole trader? What kind of safety nets should you put in place before you leave your job? And what about finding your first client?

This guide will cover all these topics and more, and give you a thorough rundown of everything you need to know about becoming an IT contractor (or consultant!).
