IT Contracting vs Perm??

Recommended Posts

Guest kanunski

Hi there,


I've emailed a couple of accountancy firms in Sydney with no reply yet so thought I would ask here if anyone has experience in the IT market in Sydney.


Currently my wife and I both work for our own limited company, we then contract ourselves out on a daily rate to other organisations, this proves to be quite a lucrative way of working in the UK especially with our clever accountants.


How does this work in Oz or is the line between contracting and perm a lot closer?


Kind regards,


Andy. :chatterbox:

Can't help you with Sydney as I live in Melbourne. I'm a Software Developer and was considering contracting when I arrived here. I had subscribed to all job sites and at the end of last year there were between 10 and 25 new jobs being advertised every day - many of them contracts. However, i'm glad I took a perm job because now I get 1 new job being advertised every 2 days. It looks like the demand has really plummeted.


Having said that, a friend of mine who is an Analyst has been contracting since he arrived here in 2005. He doesn't seem to have had much trouble getting contracts and has been paid very well.
