63% of accounting and finance contractors choose long term security over pay

Finance and accounting professionals would rather work on long term assignments than receive a higher per hour payment. That’s according to recent research by professional umbrella employment provider, giant group.

63% of professionals surveyed between May – July responded that long term assignments were preferable, in line with figures seen in previous studies (65% in the same period in 2012 and 58% in 2011). Only 37% would opt for better hourly pay.  

Matthew Brown, Managing Director of giant, said: “The results suggest that contractors working in accountancy and finance are recognising the importance of longer term security, which is a trend we expect to continue throughout this year. And while this discipline has been hit hard over the past few years, more than three-quarters of participants are now saying they only have to wait up to a month to get a new assignment, and we expect this level of optimism to continue in line with previous surveys.”
