  1. Sorry about the bad link guys. Slip of the fingers, nothing more. Thanks for helping, Monika.

    Indeed, it’s an interesting time to be a freelancer and we may seem to be picking up work where fulltimers lose out. On the flip side BT are currently laying off contractors. I’m sure that each business is approaching cost saving in a different way.

    Good luck, if you chose to apply.
