If you are happy with 15 pounds per hour - only you will know

Given that you are newly qualified, my advice would be to think of your client base and gather as many as possible

Think costumer service from when you get out of bed, to when you go to sleep.

Get your clients and keep them.

Another way would be to charge for the whole job without spliting mats and labour up.

250 + 20 quid per hour round it up and that

1. When you go it alone full time, you will need to put your rates up from
