A survey by giant found that 64 per cent of respondents would prefer a long term contract over a higher hourly rate – a four per cent increase compared to two years ago. This is indicative of the preference for job security, which was ranked most important by 23 per cent of respondents, an increase of seven per cent since 2011.
Matthew Brown, Managing Director of giant said: “These results are perhaps unsurprising when you factor in the economic climate of the last few years. Many individuals are still anxious about job security and therefore there is a desire for more long term contract opportunities.”
