New research has revealed that contingent work is considered a positive alternative to permanent work for many Australian employees, who are attracted by the flexibility and variety of work, feel well-treated by employers, understand their rights and are happy doing it.

    I started working as aProfessional Contarctor 15+ years ago and have continued to enjoy this. I agree with the comments that the variety and freedom a contract role offers is a great motivator. I have had the benefit of working across many industries in this time, and agree that the one thing that you need to be clear of is the expectation of clients before starting the contract.
    Yes, I am always looking for a good permanent role, and have tried a few contract to permanent positions which have not worked out, but still achieved a positive outcome for both parties.
