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.
