Well-known IT recruitment specialist, Computer People, has launched its latest contractor benefits scheme, CareCom, in association with accountancy firm, 3 sixty group.
The programme, which is open to all existing Computer People contractors including those making the transition from permanent to freelance work, has been designed to "support and address" the industry and private issues that contractors face, the agency claims.
Key features of the scheme include discounted rates on mortgages, medical insurance and mobile phones, free banking through Natwest, tax and accountancy services with 3 sixty group, hotel breaks and healthclub membership.
Managing director Peter Searle says the scheme provides greater stability for contractors and reduces the risks faced by those switching from a permanent to a contracting lifestyle.
A dedicated CP and 3 sixty group hotline will operate during office hours to provide eligible members with further information and advice.
