The world of contracting is an interesting one. It’s a roller-coaster ride with significant highs and the potential for significant lows, but right now (Q1 2017) many contractors feel as though we’re in the middle of a big low, with the London contract market seeming very quiet indeed to those affected.
As a recruiter specialising in tech, I have to remain active and engaged in this continuously evolving market. Attending meet ups and events are key to helping me understand how best to communicate to the technically minded and knowing industry knowledge always helps build respect with both candidates and clients. On a daily basis, I am speaking to and meeting with front end developers, so it is important that I listen and make a note of new #trends in the market, as I know it will not be long before clients start requesting the same technical skillset which excites developers.
