Security Cleared contractors are one of the new industries that over the last ten years have embraced contractors with open arms. Companies looking to downsize, streamline or save on expenses are looking to outsource their security requirements.
Companies can save money by not retaining so many permanent members of staff. In turn the security contractor can charge much higher rates as they don't cost the company so much in the long term.
Average rates of pay for a security cleared contractor in the UK are between £250 - 350 per day. This is obviously dependent on your experience, clearance level and where in the UK you are based.
With rates of pay this strong and coupled with the freedom of being a contractor, the reasons to enter contracting as a security cleared contractor keep growing and growing.
