Why is Contracting in place within Healthcare Communications?
Interims and contracting are in place:
- To provide greater flexibility as employers can have many restrictions within permanent positions.
- To enable talent to be recruited whilst a there is no approval for a headcount role
- To cover short term requirements
- To trial a project before it becomes approved as a long term plan

The benefits of a Contract role include:
Financial Rewards :
- Contractors are generally paid more per hour or day than full time employers. This is dependent on the nature of the work and the need to be flexible.
- More flexibility for the contractor to negotiate conditions and pay.
Variety :
- Contractors can gain a wider breadth of experience and knowledge through working with multiple organisations
- Contractor skills are frequently in short supply, so frequently a contractor will have a choice of work.
Work Life Balance :
- Contractors in areas of short supply, frequently have the option of negotiating hours, days of work and location of work.
- You are your own boss, between contracts you can take breaks that suit you.
Skills and Knowledge :
- You are in control- you choose the skills you want to develop and how you do it
- Working with different businesses will allow you to develop your skill set and gain experience within the industries you work in.

Is contracting the right move for you?
A contracting role could be the right path for you if:
- You seek greater financial reward than a permanent role
- You seek more flexibility than a permanent role would offer
- You cannot commit to a permanent role
- Your experience is more appropriate to a contract role than permanent
