What makes contracting so attractive to candidates?

We have seen a rise in the popularity of contract work, with candidates happily accepting contract roles as opposed to permanent positions.

From an employers point of view, there are many benefits for hiring contractors, such as:

  • Flexibility: Contractors can be hired on a short-term or permanent basis.
  • Access to specialised skills set: Contractors have all the necessary skills and come already trained.
  • Contract recruitment has proven to lower recruitment costs.
  • It gives companies a ‘Try Before You Buy’ opportunity.

We surveyed some of our candidates in Switzerland to gain a deeper understanding about what motivates candidates to accept contract roles.
