Contract positions on the rise

Global recruitment firm, Robert Walters’ latest survey showed that companies increasingly use contracting as a flexible employment method and a viable solution to the lack of permanent manpower in their organisations.

According to Toby Fowlston, CEO of Robert Walters Group, employers look to hire contractors as temporary assistance for employees on maternity leave or to work on various projects. “Contracting helps employers manage talent and gives employees the exposure to various industries, with a chance to convert to a permanent role with the organisation,” he added.

The survey was targeted at over 300 professionals and raises awareness on the growing importance of contract recruiting as a flexible hiring strategy for employers, as well as a viable career opportunity for specialist professionals.
