It works for everyone; the individual is in control of their destiny choosing where and when they work. It can spice up their CV and month-to-month working patterns. They can get to the end of a contract and they can choose to go to a different company if they want to or renew with that existing company. We’ve now got clients that have been with us for 15 years as contractors and have embraced the life.
It’s also a winner for the company that’s employed them as well, because they’ve got access to a skill set they may not have otherwise had within their permanent employee ranks. Also they have a resource they can turn on and off like a tap; as a particular project comes to an end, they don’t then have to wait for the next piece of work for a particular permanent employee to come along.
