Industry Insights

Contract working is becoming a popular option and has its benefit

The choice of moving from permanent to contract working is becoming a popular option and has its benefits.

We have seen an increase of people moving from permanent to contracted working. This type of working can suit a range of careers including Business Analysts, Project Managers, Technical Support, Software Development and Database Analysts. Contracting offers more felixibility and can be a more lucrative option to permanent.

Here are three reasons why making the change to contracting can be a good option:


This can suit those that want to take some time out between contracts. Some for travelling or those with families taking time off during summer months, making this a good option for full-time working parents.


With different contracting options available you can decide whether having your own company or working under an umbrella company gives you more control over pay and benefits.
