What Does A Typical Contract Opportunity Look Like?
There is no typical length for a contractor’s position. Indeed, many companies do begin by advertising such positions for three months as a starting point. However, this initial period is, more often than not, extended. Providing both the consultant and client find that the relationship is a good match, it should last until project completion. This will, of course, vary according to the nature of the work that needs doing but can often last several years.
What’s The Difference Between Contract, Temporary & Fixed Term?
Is contracting the same as temporary employment? While they are very similar in that neither are permanent, they are, in fact very different in their remuneration and their terms and conditions:
- Firstly, temporary employees are often employees of the agency who places them in short-term positions, usually to cover staff absences in high volume operations. Contractors, by contrast, are typically employed to manage a specific project through to completion.
- Secondly, the nature of the work temp workers do is quite different to that of a specialist consultant. Temp opportunities often require fewer specialist skills, whereas IT consultants tend to be highly skilled individuals who specialise in a particular niche.
- Finally, temp staff are most likely to be paid an hourly rate; contractors, on the other hand, tend to be paid by the day.
- Fixed-term contracts are slightly different. They are essentially the same as permanent employees, except, rather than their employment being on a permanent basis, they are hired for a fixed length of time. This is an example of a temporary recruitment solution employers use to cover a period of maternity.
Due to the recent IR35 Tax regulations surrounding contract workers, candidates must be either:
a) A Self Employed, Limited Company
b) Work through an Umbrella Company
Of course, this means that consultants are responsible for paying their taxes directly to HMRC and are governed by stringent rules.
What Are The Benefits Of Being A Contractor?
One of the most significant benefits of working on this basis is that you become your own boss. Of course, you must ensure that the project you are working on completes within an expected deadline. However, how that work gets done is entirely up to you to decide.
Not being regular employees of a company also means that contractors aren’t entitled to the same benefits, such as holiday, sick pay and added perks. Nonetheless, there are some immense benefits to be gained by contracting. For example, by moving from project to project, contractors are often able to climb the career ladder far quicker than regular employees.
