    Database

    A heavy investment has helped us build one of the UK's largest contractor databases of highly skilled people.

    With sensible margins, Ashdown pay our contractors as much as possible.

    For example, a £300 per day Systems Analyst on three month contract has a 15% margin.

    We typically recruit middle and heavyweight contractors on a daily rate basis for project last between 1 and 24 months. They will have either a one week or one month notice.

    Hourly

    Temporary and junior contractors will usually operate on an hourly rate basis for projects. These contractors tend to have either a day or a weeks' notice.

    Interim

    Generally for 9 months to 24 months where a general skill set is required. Not as expensive as contract day-rate and charged in-line with the permanent fee structure fixed term contracts are a great solution to maternity or secondment cover, or long-term absences.
