Contractors at Management or Director level increase by 47% in 5 years
Procorre, an international professional services consultancy that operates in all business sectors in over 100 countries has released some interesting statistics about the huge increase in the contracting market at Management and Director level in the UK.
General contract growth has been 21%, and growth in management positions has grown 32% in the last five years, however the contract management sector has recorded an impressive 47% increase.
This contradicts popular opinion that the growth in UK contractors is dominated by low-end workers.
The flexibility of working for yourself and gaining real job satisfaction were the two main reasons for so many people opting to work in the Management and Director level contract posts in the UK.
