Ireland’s thriving tech sector provides plenty of permanent and contract opportunities. With no shortage of roles to choose from for good candidates, it is not unusual to have to weigh up the pros and cons of contracting, particularly when moving from entry-level roles and/or seeking career advancement.
Our experience is that while some individuals have a definite preference for the security and benefits afforded by good permanent roles, others value the flexibility and independence that contracting can provide.
This short article summarises some key contracting pros and cons to help you decide if being your own boss could be the right next move for you.
Really, it comes down to individual preferences and circumstances. Contracting can be a good choice if you value your independence, want a particular type of lifestyle, and have the confidence to be self-employed. Short-term contracting can also help you acquire new skills that will enhance your ability to secure a permanent role in future.
