Contracting, also referred to as 'temping' or 'interim' work - as opposed to a permanent role -contracting has grown to become a norm among professionals when it comes to choosing a new career or changing jobs.
Contracting offers an alternative to permanent recruitment and has its pros and cons for both the person in the role, as well as the hiring organisation. These roles can last for as little as a day or a week, or even run for a period of months or years, depending on the reason why the contractor was hired or how the role progresses as the contractor continues to work.
Maybe you have already experienced working in a contract position, or maybe you would like to know more about this way of working? Whatever stage you are at in your career, Ambition can advise you on how contracting can be the perfect solution to your next move. The opportunities we handle when it comes to contracting vary across industries and specialisation.
You can search for available contract roles by using our role search function on our jobs page. Please note however that due to the speed at which organisations require
contractors, some roles may not always be listed. It is advised to contact one of our experienced recruiters to hear about all our current opportunities.
Hiring Without Headcount
Your organisation is under a headcount freeze but still in need of resources, hiring a contractor should be part of your recruitment strategy. Headcount Management Contractors can be hired by Ambition and parked under our headcount while they work on your projects, therefore all payroll and administrative responsibilities are managed by Ambition, including staff benefits such as health insurance.
Contractors can help your business headcount shortages by covering short-term resource needs during maternity, sick and sabbatical leave as well as short-term deadlines. They are also excellent for year-end crunch time.
Testing before Commitment
Hiring a talent on a contract basis also allows you to assess if the candidate is a right fit for your business before you commit to a permanent hire.
Peace Of Mind
We maintain a regular communication with you and the contractor during the project duration to ensure that everything is running well and there are no problems.
