Discover… A Day in the Life of a Contractor

From speaking with our clients, we realised that there are a number of questions that are asked regularly, that affect a large proportion, if not all contractors. We have therefore put together a case study, showing the journey of an individual who has left full time employment for a new working life in contracting, and the tax issues that they face.

Introducing our case study subject

My name is Gabrielle and I have had a successful twelve-year career working in IT. For the past five years I have been employed by a large film production company based in London. But during the pandemic, I realised (like a lot of people!) that my priorities had changed. I enjoyed more time at home with my two sons and not having to commute to London every day. I therefore decided to take control of my career and become my own boss.

Last year I left my employment and set up my own company, GLU Consulting Ltd, providing specialist IT consultancy services to film production companies.

Join me on my journey as i leave the comforts of PAYE behind for the independence and flexibility of the world of contracting.
