Finding career advice isn’t always easy when you’re a contractor. There’s plenty of help available for permanent employees looking to find a job, to develop their skills and discover how to progress, but it’s not as easy to find for the self-employed.
When you work for yourself, you’re in charge of your career, so it’s up to you to make the decisions. You’re free to find your own niche and develop the skills you want. But do you know just how to go about this?
We created our industry specific advice to help the self-employed with their careers. If you’re wondering how to find your niche, where to source contracts or what earnings you can expect to take home, we’ve got you covered. Using our years of helping contractors from different industries, we are well placed to provide all of the support you need.
