Working as an IT contractor can be a rewarding and satisfying career choice, providing you with the freedom to decide when and where you work.
It may also give you the chance to earn significantly more than you would working as a permanent employee. Being a contractor puts you in control of your own affairs, allowing you to work across a number of industries and projects, which may include working in the UK and overseas.
Efficient and effective
Working under a pay model, such as umbrella or a limited company, can offer many benefits to you and can be advantageous to those who hire you.
Alternative pay models to traditional direct employment provides organisations with access to the skills they lack in- house. Removing the pressure and commitment of a long term engagement, it provides firms with greater financial flexibility.
In today’s digital age, specialist IT and tech skills are extremely sought after. Contractors in the industry who hold specialist skillsets are in high demand and may well experience the opportunity to pick and choose assignments.
Whilst multiple contracts and long hours can be good news from a financial perspective, it does create the challenge of keeping on top of your accountancy duties.
