Many of our clients seek to engage candidates for a defined period for a specific role. Fixed term contracts can be very useful to cover a period of maternity leave or long term sick leave. It may also cover a job where funding has been provided to undertake a specific task. They can also be great when you have a strict budget as you can predict labour costs more easily. Candidates engaged on fixed-term contracts have some of the same entitlements as permanent employees. GMT People can work with these arrangements to suit both the candidate and the client.
