Yes, I need a contractor

Why you would hire a Contractor:

A contractor offers a flexible solution when a project arises that requires a specific skillset. Contractors are often paid a day rate for their services and can therefore be brought in on an ad hoc basis (often at short notice) to cover excess workloads, provide new skills or undertake projects as and when needed. Many businesses work with contractors during periods of change or transformation until the end results are established, after which a permanent recruitment process may begin.

A short term contractor can often fill a void between an employee exiting the business and their replacement starting. Sometimes even the best planned recruitment process doesn’t always go to plan and timescales can slip, or your preferred candidate is on a longer notice period. Having gaps in key leadership and managerial roles can cause real business issues.

Contractors bring a high level of skill, knowledge and experience in their particular field and can be brought in to assist permanent businesses on specific projects. Contractors work on either a fixed term basis or on a rolling contract, allowing the employer to make use of a niche skillset without having to commit to hiring a full-time employee when there will not be a longer term requirement.

Contractors are likely to have worked with many different companies on a range of diverse projects, allowing them to draw on a breadth of experience to tackle specific issues and processes. They can provide a unique perspective and a sense of creativity that existing employees may not possess.

  • Additional benefits and perks that are available for permanent employees don’t extend to contractors, such as holiday pay and national insurance contributions,  making a contractor hire more desirable in the short term
  • Training costs are minimal, if non-existent, as contractors are being brought into a company purely to fulfil a specific requirement and will therefore not have to immerse themselves in learning company processes or systems
  • Cost savings can be made on equipment as contractors typically use their own
  • Reduced administration costs – there is no PAYE or National Insurance contributions administration for contractors

As self-employed individuals, contractors are often highly self-motivated to complete a job to a high standard to ensure they’re paid correctly and on time. They are also often reliant on word-of-mouth for business referrals and therefore conscious of meeting or exceeding expectations.

From time to time organisations will have specific projects or schemes of work that needs to be completed and there isn’t the skills or expertise within the business. Often the project doesn’t warrant the expense or time of a permanent role. This is the perfect scenario for a contractor or interim worker to come into the organisation for a defined period of time, with the niche skills required to complete the project.
