This can be an attractive option for organisations who are looking to cover longer term staff absence or need additional support with a projects or campaigns. Contract opportunities are frequently used to offset increased workloads and are popular with those individuals who want to commit to a more flexible project or timeframe that suits them.

Contract work appeals to candidates who would like short-term job security but are seeking some degree of flexibility over their longer-term schedule. You can take on work as and when it suits, allowing you to arrange breaks, holiday or travel around these interim commitments.​
