Are you searching for top tech talent in Europe market and struggling to secure permanent heads for your business? The European market is extremely compressed right now, which is why we want to help you with your hiring journey and expectations.
Contractors are being used across the globe, especially in the tech industry, however you may have never considered using a contractor before to fill immediate, short-term vacancies.
What is a contractor?
Contractors are self-employed and tend to have a high level of industry expertise. Contract hiring will be beneficial to your business if you are looking to quickly fill a gap, provide temporary cover or gain assistance with a particularly difficult or large project.
Why should I use a contractor?
Cost effective – you can expect reduced overhead costs when hiring a contractor. They look after their own admin – which includes tax and NI contributions and holiday and sick pay, and as they are paid by the hour, you are able to manage your hiring budget accordingly.
Expertise – you can use a contractor for jobs that require a high level of expertise and a fast-turnaround. This takes the pressure off of your existing, permanent members of staff who are trying to juggle the work.
Efficient – Contractors are available immediately and can commit to a contract term very quickly, getting you the cover you need in a matter of days.
Flexible – contractors are able to work around you and your business, and flexibility is key for companies that are struggling with business and financial uncertainty.

The UK government previously introduced a tax legislation back in 1999 to monitor tax avoidance from those providing services similar to a permanent employee through an intermediary, like a limited company.
In April 2021, HMRC announced that it is now the responsibility of the employer to determine this status.
