Contract Market Update August 2018

August 22 2018

I frequently get asked by candidates who are considering day rate contracting or looking for their next day rate contract whether day rate contracting is on the decline.  Having worked on the contract desk at Wilkinson and Associates for 12 years now, my honest answer would be ‘ not that I can see’ but there is certainly always a lot of factors impacting this market and the peaks and troughs can occur as a result.
