The demand for freelance contractors is at a six year high according to the Report on Jobs by REC (the leading recruitment body) and KPMG (one of the big four accountancy firms).
The number of contractors out of contract and available to start a new contract is at it's lowest since 2007 leading to a large number of vacancies for anyone thinking of moving into freelance contracting.
This is great news for anyone thinking about going freelance but it is also fantastic news for anyone who is already freelance.
The demand for contractors is leading to an increase in contractor rates. There is a huge skills shortage at present in the UK economy and this is leading to great demand. If you have not reviewed your rates in a while then now is the time to do so.
