Working as a contractor has many benefits, but may not suit everyone. On the plus side, it can offer a varied, flexible and rewarding career that can give you a better work/life balance. However, it can also have its challenges and many professionals fear leaving the security and benefits offered by permanent positions.

For many professionals, who prefer not to stay in full time, permanent employment or are between roles, contracting offers great benefits, from increased flexibility in work patterns, to greater variety of work, to generating a greater breadth of experience. It can also provide the opportunity to earn significantly more than many full time, permanent roles.

Although there can be a sense of uncertainty that some face when thinking about leaving the safety net of a permanent contract, there are so many benefits to go contracting:
