Will Shrinking Benefits Still Provide Returns? May 2019
A permanent position used to be the be all and end all in years gone by. If you were offered a contract, not bad — but the hope was to get in and stay in. Well luckily that is not the case nowadays, contracting has become a bit of a thing, and that thing can actually be fairly lucrative if you can get yourself on a daily rate contract. “I suppose the way contracting comes about, when the market is quite buoyant you will get certain projects that have to be delivered. They could be quite large projects where any existing team of permanent members wouldn’t have the capacity to run with so what companies will do is they will take on contractors to kind of plug a gap for six months or 12 months,” said Aoife Conway, Recruitment Team Lead, Vantage Resources.
