Put More Money in Your Pocket With These Hot Procurement Contract Jobs

May 8, 2013

We’ve been writing a lot lately about how Procurement professionals can make more money in contract positions, and enjoy a lot of lifestyle advantages. The pay is higher than permanent roles, allowing a better work/life balance. Self-incorporation can let you save for retirement and enjoy tons of tax advantages. The possibilities are endless from both a lifestyle and financial perspective. And it’s estimated that by 2030, 50% of the workforce will be contractors.

So while permanent search will always be an integral part of our business, we’re getting into the Procurement contract game big time.
