Online marketplace for computer contractors opens doors

The Resource Broker

A new UK service launches today which aims to make life easier for people offering IT services. The Resource Broker is an online business-to-business exchange: it is free to providers who can register their details, location and what their skills are. When another member creates a relevant new business opportunity they will be invited to tender for the business.

Steve Christian, MD and founder the Resource Broker, told El Reg: “I’ve worked as a contractor and within corporates looking for staff - there’s a problem for both sides. This site is for contractors looking for work or for businesses looking for skills or looking to outsource some processes.”

Christian said there is a ten per cent brokerage fee.

All business opportunities have deadlines attached so suppliers and contractors know they are live leads. Check out the site here. ®
