Leah’s Top Tips for Contractors!

  1. Explain your employment history

    If you’re currently in a contract, ensure that you update your LinkedIn profile with this new experience.

    Consecutive short-term roles in your employment history can be red flags to Hiring Managers. Give information on each short role that you have worked. Was it a maternity cover contract? Was it a 6-month project? This information can be extremely beneficial and work in your favour.

  2. Make the most of your online profiles

    When you have an end date for your current contract you should update your “about” section to say something along the lines of; “Current contract ending in July. Interested in 6-12 month contracts in the Leinster/Munster region beginning in August 2022”. This will prevent you being approached with irrelevant roles.

  3. Make sure choose a professional profile picture

    Choose a good quality headshot against a clean background. Keep it role appropriate. Avoid pictures from personal/social events as these don’t properly represent your professional career.

  4. List all certifications/qualifications

    List all certificates that you have completed during you career, as well as your qualifications is key to showcase your knowledge and capabilities. Especially if they relate to specific systems or software, they may be exactly what the client is looking for.

  5. Engage with an accountancy company

    A good accountancy company will be able to offer you the expertise and knowledge on umbrella company setup, help with contract tax, compliance and administration.
