About the PCG

The Professional Contractors Group is a professional trade organisation set-up to represent the interests of all knowledge based workers. The Group is now the fastest growing professional organisation ever in the UK with over 10,000 members signing up in the first year.

The PCG was formed in May 1999 to provide independent contractors and consultants with a representative voice in opposition to the original IR35 proposals. Since then the Group has developed rapidly from a one issue campaign to a full professional body, representing contractors interests and providing a voice at the top table for all relevant issues, such as the E-Commerce bill, Agency regulations and others.

Our definition of a knowledge based worker is a ‘professional person who completes a task using intellect and experience rather than machinery and tools’. The PCG now represents a wide variety of contractors’ interests including Oil and Gas contractors, engineers of all types, telecomms specialists, pharmaceutical researchers and of course IT professionals who make up the majority of our membership.

We also offer the benefits of Associate membership to Accountants, Agents, Lawyers, Clients and other interested parties in order to share our message and the information we produce.
