Financial, finance and accounting, and IT contractors are facing a massive hiring boom in the second half of 2014, with 44 per cent of major contractor clients planning to increase contract and permanent headcounts.
This is according to the latest professional index from Robert Half UK. It highlights that skilled professionals are in increasingly short supply, particularly those with niche skills. Half of the C-Suite hiring manager’s surveyed said finding candidates with the right skills is “very challenging”.
According to Contractor Calculator CEO Dave Chaplin, this ‘perfect storm’ of rapidly increasing demand alongside candidate and skills supply shortages is the ideal time for permanent employees who are feeling the itch to make the leap into contracting.
“If you have the niche technical and compliance skills that are shown to be in such short supply and high demand, then now is the time to consider a contracting career.
“Skills shortages also mean you’ll be likely to enter your first contract on a really good rate of pay,” he said.
