Manchester-based job site UK.ITcontractors.com is providing a free recruitment service to contractors and clients.
Launched last month, the site allows contractors to access contract work directly from clients, who in turn, can promote job vacancies on the site free of charge.
"We send clients six candidates from our database who match their job criteria, if these are inappropriate we send another six. From there on in, the client can contact the contractor directly to arrange an interview."
Littlewood says that contractors can also volunteer their services if they feel they are particularly suited to a job specifications.
The site will offer contractors information on specialist benefits such as accountancy, high interest bank accounts and legal advice and makes its money via the advertising revenue of these services.
