Rates

To bring us into line with the industry standard, we are changing the way we calculate our management fee from a 10% uplift basis to a 10% margin basis.

As a result, all rates on the site will look different from today.

The rate you pay will stay the same for any contracts that are already agreed, or for any Sellers you have already put on a shortlist.

The terms and conditions

We have updated our terms and conditions for both Buyers and Sellers. You will need to agree to the new terms and conditions next time you sign in to your homepage.

We will now be charging a small margin (5%) on expenses processed through people4business Limited. This is in order to meet the administrative and financing costs of processing expenses claims from your Sellers.

If you want to refer to the revised terms and conditions, you can either download them (in a pdf) from our site or read the terms and conditions page. people4engineering logo

We’ve already told you about people4engineering – from people4business in partnership with Adecco – the latest people4 site. people4engineering and Adecco are soon to be featured in a DVD – Fit for Tomorrow – to be sent to 25,000 Confederation of British Industry members.

We’re in discussions with a number of major organisations about new white-label sites that will bring in thousands of new Buyers and Sellers to people4.

Think of us first!

Don’t forget: we can provide any contractor in any industry for any length of time.

Whether you need a Russian translator for an hour or a PHP developer for a year – no contract is too big or too small.

Don’t just use us when your usual agency can’t help. Use us for – and save money on – ALL your contracting needs!

Latest stats…

The Seller, Buyer and skills counts are updated daily on our home pages.

24,547 Sellers – 2,296 Buyers – 7,124 skills … and counting!

When you are searching for highly skilled, professional Sellers, particularly in the IT & Internet category, look out for the PCG logo pcg logo in the profiles of PCG-member Sellers.

The PCG is the not-for-profit trade association that helps its members to run their contracting or consulting business in full compliance with the law.

Take the plunge!

Still feeling nervous about using the sites? Remember that you’re not committed to anything until the moment you appoint a Seller.

If you need some reassurance, you can see what other Buyers have thought, by looking at our testimonials page, which has comments from both Buyers and Sellers. Why not get in touch to tell us what you think?

If you’re wondering how the people4 sites can work with your current systems, we’re happy to help.
