The iContract platform isn’t just a place to find the latest contracts and to make connections with contractors and recruiters. At it’s heart, there is a community element which brings contractors and recruiters together from all different work backgrounds.
When people hear the word community, they might initially think of friendships and the social side of it. This is of course all true, but community also means a place where you can go for help, support and advice from peers and receive recommendations.
A place where people can go for advice and seek help from is exactly the type of community we want to emulate with iContract. Part of the iContract offering is our services section where contractors can access advice from service providers to help with them issues concerning the daily problems and admin woes that contractors face in their work lives.
In the first of a series of blog posts, we wanted to introduce you to some of our service providers and see how they can help you.
