"Life as an IT Contractor"

Date: Thursday 24th July 2008

Venue: International House, Telford 6.00 drinks & snacks for 6.30pm start

Event Synopsis: Life as an IT Contractor - a panel discussion

BCS Shropshire's second event is a panel discussion on “Life as an IT Contractor’. Capgemini have very kindly agreed to host this event at International House. Attendance at the event is free and open to all, both BCS members and non-members alike. A panel discussion will be led by:


  • Karen (Huxley Associates)
  • Elvira (Independent Contractor)
  • Neil (Phillips Accountants)


Many of us have contemplated becoming an Independent IT consultant at some point in our IT careers. Only a few have actually followed through to becoming a contractor. This discussion is designed to answer questions related to various aspects of being a contractor. The panel consists of representatives from the recruitment industry (Huxley Associates), an accountant, and a practicing IT contractor. After the panel discussion, the audience are invited to take part in an interactive question and answer session.
