IT Contractors: Increased Income and Flexibility
In many ways IT contractors experience the best of both worlds. They have the increased pay and flexibility of a temporary worker, but, with the right agency they will never be out of work. IT contractors get to choose the projects they work on, negotiate their pay based on their experience and take time off whenever they need it. And with the advance of the internet, cloud computing, virtualisation and any number of other technologies, IT contractors are never going to find themselves short of roles to drop into.
Businesses are always going to need tech personnel, but as the shift towards outsourced IT gathers pace, in-house staff are likely to end up taking a back seat, which is why the number of IT contractors operating in the UK is on the up. It's a no-brainer really. If you want more pay, better hours and work on the latest, cutting-edge tech projects of your choosing, then it's time to follow the rest of Britain's IT contractors with a representative - like Orange Genie.

Are IT Contractors Risk Takers?
IT contractors undoubtedly face an inherent risk when they finish their job and go it alone. Of course, their future security depends on their ability to find work - or at least the ability of their chosen agency to find them work. But, as mentioned above, the risks IT contractors face are not as great as many might think. And with changes to the IT sector and global economy wreaking havoc with traditional business models, IT contractors are in many ways better suited to weathering any IT sector storm.
One of the best ways to avoid financial difficulty when contracting is to keep some cash aside for when you're not working - which means getting your finances in order. This is why umbrella companies like Orange Genie offer both an umbrella company and Accountancy service. Both are designed to help you keep your tax liabilities in check while giving your tax efficient advice to make the most of your contract income.
