In the December newsletter we mentioned that we were in the process of collating the results of our contractor insights survey. We can now confirm that the responses have been analysed and true to form, some of the results have been quite surprising.
For instance even though pay rate was the most important factor when looking for their next contract, only 45% of respondents had personally negotiated the pay rate for their last contract. The survey also revealed that contractors are a loyal bunch, with 76% never having left a contract early for a better opportunity. However even though they may be loyal, 56% advised that they do like to register with 2 - 5 agencies so it's important to make sure you are standing out from the crowd and in order to do that we found that matching personality to the client culture, matching skill sets to the role and understanding the contractors capabilities were all things that contractors valued in a recruitment agency.
These are just a few of the headlines that came out of the survey, if you'd like to see the full report please contact our Sales Director, Ashley Olliver on 0161 929 6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll be happy to talk you through the results.
