How we help new Contractors

There’s nothing worse than walking into a room full of strangers who are all talking about something you’ve no clue about. That’s probably how you’re feeling right now. You don’t know enough about contracting yet and you haven’t yet figured out the right questions to ask. If that sounds familiar then click on the ‘Schedule a Call Back’ button above. Have a chat with one of our team. They’ll start answering the ” What is Contracting” question and as they talk, you jump in with questions. We keep chatting until you’re 100% comfortable you understand everything.

Then we prepare a take home pay estimate for you, like the one we have here, but this one is really tailored to you specifically so it’s more accurate. After all, no-one can make the decision to go contracting until they know how much money they’re going to take home.


Leave your number and we’ll call you back.

Why Contractors are ‘born’

Sometimes its out of necessity, but the reality is those who are self-employed (which Contractors are) do it because some or all of the following really appeal to them;

  • They choose the companies they want to work with
  • They have a much better work/life balance
  • They’re going to earn more money than they could as an employee
  • They want to feel fulfilled and excited by the work they do
  • They want to continually learn and develop their skills

Personality Traits of Contractors

Being your own boss takes a certain type of person. While you might be in a ‘safe’ 12 month contract now, you need to be aware that no-one else is going to find your next contract/client for you. Recruitment Agencies are a great source to help you find a role, but it will help if you recognise any of these traits in yourself;

  • Confident & Motivated
  • Have a realistic sense of what is possible (mostly around timelines)
  • Organised and adaptable
  • Able to work alone and have confidence in your decision making
  • Patience – a stream of work won’t come in overnight, and you might have to say no to a few bad offers before the right one comes along.

I would highly recommend Contracting Plus for all your Contracting needs. For someone who was new to Contracting the on-boarding process was made very simple and straightforward, and the ongoing support I have received for Payroll and Tax has been excellent. Everything was handled with such efficiency and expertise.
