The advantages are
- Availability – Most contractors plan their end dates strategically. They know 4 to 6 weeks before end date if they are getting an extension. Therefore start date is a specified date rather than a notice period. This is great for project work.
- Flexibility / HR issues – If for whatever reason, the contractor is not working out then you have the flexibility to end the contract without justification.
- Expertise – One leading global tech company in Dublin hire the top 10% of candidates. More of that 10% are now contracting.
No training or professional certification costs – Contractors pay for this themselves through their limited companies.
- Cost – The most common objection from our clients in relation to taking on a contractor is cost. When you actually break it down the results paint an interesting picture. Please see below:
