I am one of the founders, and Managing Director, of www.people4business.com an online marketplace for the Buyers and Sellers of professional services.
Buyers are businesses, generally within the UK, and Sellers are freelancers, contractors and consultants.
Since launch in May 2006 the site now has 46,000 professionals selling their services to over 2,600 businesses.
Buyers gain from a low-cost marketplace environment for purchasing contract resource.
Sellers gain from free marketing and guaranteed payment for any contracts they gain through any of the people4 group of sites.
