This includes those who have recently arrived in the UK or who are new to IT Contracting or temporary / Interim work (usually from Australia, Canada, the EU, New Zealand & South Africa) and those who are resident in the UK and wish to Career Transition into contracting. We help you develop your contracting career to the next level through our Career Development services.

    Too costly to spend two weeks training in London. Should provide the training online


  • Reply by BITE Contractors Limited on 8th May 2017

    Apologies if it was not made clear to you. We do provide an on line training service BITE Consulting TV at £14.95 per month that offers great value for money. However individual coaching over the internet has proven to be unsuccessful and really only works face to face for our clients. Do try BITE Consulting TV.

    The interviewer was sometimes a little intense and lacked empathy to the candidates views when that view did not fit with their own. Otherwise, it was go od friendly and informative


  • Reply by BITE Contractors Limited on 6th March 2017

    Thanks for your feedback we try in the space of an hour to give you helpful information to take away with you and this may sometimes feel if not enough time is allowed to hear your point of view. Having said that our interviewers try pretty hard to understand things from each candidates perspective to identify how we can help and whether our support is right for each candidate.. We are very sure the fit for a working relationship is two way and not a hard company sell. I apologise if you felt not enough consideration was given to your circumstances -. BITE Consulting

    I felt that Bite provided the opportunity that I needed to move into the contract market; however I was concerned that the training times/dates were not flexible. It would require me to leave a permanent job position without a post, in order to go through the training process anticipating a contract plac ement at the end. I feel these training days should be digital where possible and consultation can be online skype or similar platform.


  • Reply by BITE Contractors Limited on 2nd February 2017

    We are able to provide digital/video training via BITE Consulting TV :http://bite.careerlibrary.tv/bite-get-access-now/ This is ideal for people who cannot attend our offices for training at only £14.95 per month. However the real issue is that to be successful in the London IT contract market you need to be unemployed as contracts are immediate and clients will not wait for people to server a notice period before joining them in most cases. This is the opposite to permanent job seeking where it can be an advantage to be currently employed in many cases, as employers are prepared to wait between 1 and 3 months for the right candidate. Thanks for your feedback and I am sorry if this was not made clearer to you.- Keith Boatman Managing Director

    After my very first attempt at Bite Consulting Ltd, to meet Keith he made me understand that I was just not targeting the right market place in regard to my professional experience. Indeed, also considering that English is not my first language, I was ready to look for any positions which would allow me to get into the work market. Thanks to Keith advice I knew that I was all wrong. For me to adjust my thoughts and therefore my job hunting strategy; hanging very tightly to his words as well as to Jennifer and Cathy ones. I have to say that when I arrived at Bite Consulting Ltd it was also much about building my confidence which was quite down. Within a fabulous ambiance and thanks to fantastic workshops, support and guidance, on a daily basis, I learnt how to make my job researches effective and successful. For instance regular updates and notes on spreadsheet, guidance on how to deal with agents via phone and face to face, how to build and maintain a professional network, preparation and advice to get job interview and be successful and puff, I get my very first contract within my field and at the market rate! I have just finished my first week and it is only now that I really realise that it is happening to me. I do not know yet how to really express my gratitude; for now, yes, I can say 1000 MERCIS A KEITH AINSI QU'A TOUTE L'EQUIPE DE BITE CONSULTING LTD!!! Keith is one of those genuine and dedicated people with the perfect word at the right time. The all team vocation/art is to manage to get the quintessence of each individual/contractor, display it to each of us, provide necessary advice and hugs to help us as better as possible through the way that lead to the work. Keith, Bite Consulting Ltd trusted me; I can not thank him enough for all what he have brought to me. Indeed if it is an exceptional team, I have also met fabulous people/professional from all over the world. Oui, All that is Priceless! And for all that I can definitively not thank you enough Keith.

    When I first arrived in the UK I thought I would use my connections to secure a position in the UK. This f ailed quickly and I needed a different approach. I tried, hard, to get a job on my own but did not get much interest from my CV that was registered on the job boards at that time. After a few months of making no progress at all I came upon Bite. After rewriting my CV using their templates and using their techniques for chasing after opportunities I started generating interest with the recruitment agencies. Within 2 weeks I had an interview, got a job offer while I was in the interview and started working on the Monday. Eight months later I did it all again and had a job within a week. I would recommend anybody arriving form overseas in the UK to make use of Bite's services. They offer the whole package and deliver on their promises.

Bite Consulting helped me understand the market, learn the tricks and the secret language of the agents and how not to get stung by them, as well as showing me how to construct and optimise my CV. After gaining this wisdom and being around people who were in the same boat, I became more confident and like a steam train gaining momentum, nothing could stop me from getting a job that I was really happy with.

    When I first came to London I was recommended to Bite by a friend that was with them. He said that finding a job in the UK was not the same as back home in NZ and Bite were a huge help. He was exactly right, from the beginning Bite impressed, with excellent facilities and personal service. When I first joined I was consulted about what sort of work I wanted to do, my CV was reviewed and my interview techniques improved. Bite was always happy to provide references for such things as my HSMP visa application and leases on new apartments etc. Wages were always paid within 10 days after my time sheet was submitted for the month. Also, little things like new contracts sent out accompanied with addressed and stamped envelopes and regular newsletters with useful info made the contracting experience that much easier. In the two years I have been in the UK it is the only company that seems to work efficiently and actually care about you and your career. I have already recommended my friends to Bite and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.

    It is always difficult leaving your comfort zone back home, not knowing what to expect when arriving in the UK. As most people often have friends over here they invariably spend the first few weeks with people they know. Finding a job is therefor the main concern for the majority of people. By using Bite's services, finding a job needn't be a worry and once you have landed a contract, Bite takes care of all the paperwork, and most importantly you always get paid on time. Everybody else at Bite's offices will be in the same boat as you, so looking for work can be fun. I have been using Bite since I arrived here and I am still with them.

    One of the best if not the best career coaching company.

    After 3 years back home in Cape Town I arrived in London for a second and more permanent stint in the capital, this time committed to make contracting my career and determined not be tempted into ultimately dissatisfying permanent jobs. I believe there is a certain personality type that is attracted to contracting and the autonomy and independence that it ultimately provides. If that sounds like you I think Bite can help you. The assistance they gave me in terms of getting my CV contract fit is something I would not have been able to figure out on my own. But more than that , my association with Bite has given me a deep understanding now of the ins and outs of limited companies, IR35, the importance of a good accountant and the various options available to me as I mature as a contractor.

    I arrived from New Zealand over 3 years ago and found Bite on the web after looking at a number of options. Right form the outset I have found all the staff friendly and supportive, with a real interest in ensuring that I am getting the best possible roles and assistance. My CV was radically overhauled and my interview technique improved from the various training modules. The fact that in 3 years I have always been paid on time with, both through the PAYE and Umbrella company offerings has ensured that they are trustworthy. I was especially impressed with the fact that Bite staff took out their own personal time to assist me with visa applications after working hours in 2006 and re enforced my view that they are here to have a sustainable relationship with all the contractors and not just make a quick quid. I would not hesitate to recommend Bite Consulting, both to those new to the UK and those who have been here and in the business for some time.

    Having tested the contract market for three months after taking voluntary redundancy I joined Bite Consulting in order to improve chances of employment. Although my CV was appropriate for targeting permanent positions, their advice and direction allowed me to create a CV and variants for the contract market. Although my game plan was contracting only, I was continually being approached by agents for temporary and permanent roles. One such permanent offer was too good to turn so I have taken up the opportunity. Bite Consulting provide sound advice and practical training either as a refresher of new to the market place.

They also take you through interview methods and in general get you as prepared as possible for the UK job market. In my case I had a job within 2 weeks of landing in the UK and all because of Bite. There is no up front payment which when you first land is a big bonus and the quicker you start earning UK ponds and stop living on Australia dollars the better your experience will be in the UK.

    I first came to know about Bite Consulting when I was in South Africa. I sent my CV to them and it was an eye opener on where I stood should I get into the UK job market. After coming into the UK I got in touch with Bite and was invited to visit their offices in London where I met Keith. Needless to say after signing up with them I began going through their training program which was very thorough. For every new contractor coming into the UK Bite is the place to launch your career. I got my first UK contract 2 months after joining up with Bite and the dedication of the staff to see that you succeed is truly amazing. The team are committed to your success. The umbrella benefits that come with Bite guarantee that you paid on time and I give the accounts team a thumbs up as they make sure the monies owed to you for work done come into your account on time. Should you need to change to work permit of HSMP then Bite has the expertise and the know how to guide you on that. Their offices are friendly and relaxed, enabling you to network with fellow contractors to know what is happening and tips on how to tap into the hidden job market. Give Bite a go.

    Bite has a host of excellent mentors. Whether you are somebody looking to switch form permanent to contractor jobs, or are a seasoned contractor and want to be more visible in the market, then choosing Bite is the best thing you can do to advance your career. 2009 was when I first started thinking about leaving permanent jobs and getting into contracting. I had put in tremendous amount of thought and did a lot of research around the market. I even went to the extent of registering my own limited company the same year. However due to lack of exposure on how the UK contracting market works I was bound to do permanent jobs until 2012 when someone suggested I consult Bite. 2 weeks after joining Bite I had 4 interviews lined up and in the third week had a contract offer to start immediately.

    I moved across to the UK form NZ about 8 years ago. Bite consulting enabled me to come across by providing employment in their consulting business, and the required work permit to do so. I worked with Keith and the team until I was able to get my indefinite leave to remain. I found Bite to be straight up, very helpful, gave great insight into the UK market and very professional to deal with. They are also very nice people in general.

    Before coming over from Oz Bite provided me with very clear expectation about the job market. I was confident of finding work and with BITE's help was able to find a job in my second week here in London. The first contract I got was for 6 months at an Investment Bank. The technical lead at the bank commented after I got the role that the thing that made me stand out from other applicants was the presentation of my CV. The work BITE did in getting my CV write for the job and the market was invaluable. When I relocated to London there were so many things to worry about like finding place to live and so on. Bite's help at the start with things like CV preparation, job searching, dealing with agents and understanding the market was and continues be a great help in selling yourself as quality candidate for contract work in the UK.

    After trying on my own for a month or two to get a job, with no success, I stumbled on an advert for Bite Consulting. I rang them up and was so glad I did. I was met by friendly voices, eager to assist me and getting everything correct to prepare me for the UK job market. Everything form how to handle yourself in an interview, how to professionally do your CV and how to handle the agents on the other end of the phone trying to see through all the trappings they lay before you. Bite has been a lifeline for me, they understand me and the needs that I have trying to succeed in a country far from home. They strive only to ensure that you get the best advice, job and remuneration that you deserve. All I can say is that without them things might not have worked out as they I would have liked them to.

    I have been with Bite for over 4 years, they always pay on time and have a friendly, efficient and clued up accounts team. The career training and CV marketing has been really valuable and would be useful even to veteran contractors. Bite has also been helpful in dealing with Work Permit and HSMP Applications. Unlike many other companies, you get the feeling that Bite are in it for the long run rather than just trying to make a quick quid. The atmosphere at Bite is chilled out and they tend to attract friendly contractors. I would not hesitate to recommend Bite to any IT contractor looking to work in the UK and also those who have been in the UK for a while.

    Bite provided excellent training and mentoring for my contract search. They patiently and meticulously reviewed my CV for the UK contract market and engaged me in their job search training with job advert exercises and role plays. Do not be put off by the term role play, it is a necessary part of the training. I had an interview lined up by the end of the third week, followed by a job offer. It has been 5 weeks since I completed the Bite program and I receive an average of 2 calls per week from recruiters wanting to discuss roles with me because they found my CV on job sites. What can I say? Bite helped me produce a CV that is in demand.

    I cannot believe it was a year yesterday since I landed back on Australia. A lot has happened in the last 12 months, with buying a house, getting married, getting a ACL knee reconstruction, and have helped with a new company going it alone without agencies to provide SAS services directly to the customer. I do owe some gratitude to BITE for the skills that I learnt that I have been able to utilize here in Australia. With the GFC it has been very difficult to get employment sometimes but the skills of selling your self to agents, and learning about the unadvertised job marketing, and networking have been even more helpful. Through my networking, I have met some ex SAS employees who have started their own company who I am sub-contracting having greater earning potential then going through agencies. A big thank you to Keith and yourself. While the last few weeks of refresher skills in the office didn't land me a job in the UK, it did help when I returned. Again thank you for everything that you did for me back in 2003 when I was fresh off the boat. If I didn't have BITE I probably would have run home with my tail between my legs. The support and coaching helped me have the time that I did in the UK which have provided many memories.

    I found Bite's expertise really helpful in looking for a job in Britain, they have obviously been doing this for some time and have a wealth of material that was incredibly useful. The offices were in Central London, which was great for taking some time off for sight seeing. Also I found that it was a very supportive environment, especially in regards to meeting other people looking for work, everyone had some advice to offer or were willing to discuss other, non work related, issues, for example, finding the best place to stay. I am really happy with the work Keith and the crew did for me, and look forward to working with them in the future.

I obtained my visa, we moved to the UK and I had a job within 3 weeks for meeting Keith, Jennifer, Trish and the rest of the team at Bite. I have working through Bite for almost two and a half years now and am very appreciative of their continued support and valued advice that they offer for those working in the UK IT market.

    I have had a association with Bite since July 2001, firstly with the Wellington New Zealand office which helped me with my first Ancestral Entry Application. The team in London then helped me with finding my feet in the UK contract market at a tough time. When I first joined I was consulted about what sort of work I wanted to do, my CV was reviewed and my interview techniques improved. I believe I was one of their longest term job seekers and I got to know Keith, Jennifer and Rhona fairly well. They have always been positive and encouraging and I owe them a great vote of thanks for their support and friendship. From the start Bite has provided a combination of excellent facilities and personal service, to go with their in depth knowledge of the UK recruitment market, and an understanding of expatriate job seekers. I have used both their PAYE product and limited company option with great satisfaction. I would recommend Bite to any Aussie, Kiwi of SAFFA coming to London.
