Why become a Contractor with HERO.
Becoming a contractor provides you with flexibility and enhanced learning opportunities to develop your career on a variety of projects across industries.
Benefits of working as a contractor are numerous and include:
You choose the periods you wish to work – days, weeks, months, reflecting the assignments and projects you choose to work.
- Job Variety & Experience
Due to the nature of contracting you can receive varied company experience working on a variety of projects with different companies. You are continuously learning and gaining valid work experience and developing sought after skills.
Contracting allows you to travel on assignments and projects, giving you the opportunity to live abroad whilst developing your career in a valuable and worthwhile manner.
- Be your own Boss
As a contractor, you are in essence, your own employer and can choose when and where to work.
Moving from PAYE to Contracting can be daunting but can result in increased flexibility and increased income. Contractors do not receive the same social insurance benefits as PAYE employees, they also do not receive holiday or sick pay.
Types of Contracting:
PAYE Umbrella Companies - A PAYE Umbrella company is a limited company which allows Contractors to maintain Class A PRSI contributions while on Contract whilst taking advantage of all the benefits Contracting brings.
Ltd Liability Contractor - A personal limited company is a company owned by you, giving you legal protection against any personal liability while contracting. Unlike an Umbrella Company, you fully own the company, most suited to long term contractors.
