In 2015 we have seen an extremely candidate-driven job market, this is increasing your competition in finding and retaining top talent, especially in such industries as the IT, Technical and Engineering, which are as a result pushing permanent salaries up. However, there is a solution you’ll be happy to hear – hiring contractors!

“Contractors offer great advanced skill and instant support whether you are expanding or need to fill a gap urgently.” Lee Margerum, Divisional Manager – IT, Technical & Engineering.

The benefits of hiring contractors:Untitled design (36)

  • Provides you with staffing flexibility meaning you can hire a contractor to meet expected increases in demand or on a project basis, without the need to keep them beyond these periods.
  • They can save you money. Although contractors usually get paid more per job or hour/day, it is likely that the overall hiring cost will be reduced as there are no long term commitments to pay a salary or additional benefits, especially at a time where salaries have significantly increased for permanent staff within these industries.
  • Usually specialists in their field. It is therefore unlikely the contractor will require any training as they will have the specialised skill-set required.
