Contracting Scenarios

Scenario 1
You are engaged for a fixed period of time to deliver a required outcome or piece of work. The length of engagement is established at the outset. The contract specifies an end date or on completion of a specific task. An alternative to permanent work, contracting often allows individuals the chance for career advancement that suits personal circumstances.

Scenario 2
A rapidly emerging employment trend is for companies to initially engage a contractor to fill an on-going role until they decide to make a permanent appointment. On occasion, these arrangements may lead to contract extensions or an offer of permanent employment.

  • Independence – be you own boss!
