Tech Aid has really grasped the initiative and shown it is willing to support the contractor, both short and long term. New members will benefit from PCG services and over time, I am sure Tech Aid clients will find the contractors more professional and better informed as a result."

We are delighted to be the first recruitment agency to support the PCG and contractors in this fashion." Notes to Editors; 1.
