By ATA Recruitment

The ATA Annual Contractor Rates Report 2020 is now available to download

The past 12 months have been an unpredictable time for employers and candidates alike. Many employers have reassessed their recruitment strategies, as the effects of COVID-19, mass furlough and multiple lockdowns continue to have a huge impact on day-to-day operations. Whilst those that can have been quick to adapt and implement a COVID-19 secure workplace, the knock on effects of the choppy economic waters we have seen over the past 12 months are impossible to ignore.

As companies have started to return close to normal, we have seen a real upturn in the requirement for contractors and temporary engineers. Having spoken to our clients, there are several reasons for this rapid increase in the need for contractors and temporary staff:

  • Clients have reduced their headcount and as orders have increased, they have needed to upscale quickly, contractors & temporary workers have allowed them to do this

  • Several businesses are still uncertain about the future and would prefer a flexible skilled resource at this time as they return to normal

  • In certain sectors like food and logistics, the demand for permanent engineers is high. When this demand can’t be met quickly enough, contractors and temporary maintenance engineers have provided an excellent short-term solution

With average contractor rates and and expert commentary from our specialist consultants and managerial team, we have compiled the Annual Contractor Rates Report 2020 based on the thousands of placements made throughout the past 12 months.

Covering the following disciplines, we have answered some of the most common questions we get asked, as well as providing you with the quantitative data from salary trends:
