What is a Contractor?

Contractors are specialists who possess a particular manual skillset for a trade or craft. Contractors are grouped in the interim between labourer and professional. A contractor must have a wide and varied knowledge of their trade, both in terms of theoretical understanding and also practical experience of actually carrying out work to a high standard.

The market for the skills and experience of contractors is often highly lucrative as it fills a particular niche that neither labourers nor professionals are able to meet. A contractor will traditionally serve their time as an apprentice to another skilled contractor to get a better grasp of what their work actually entails. Part of their education will also be formal and the contractor will have to undertake assessment of their skills before becoming qualified.

Why is becoming a Contractor a great way of earning a living?

Although a number of trades became obsolete in the last century due to advancements in technology, the ones that remain are highly lucrative for anyone wanting to become a contractor. Getting qualified to become a contractor is not always a straightforward process and may require some investment and a lot of commitment before you actually get what you set out to achieve.

The best thing about being a contractor is that you don't have to rely on a boss to pay your wage every month and you don't ever have to answer to one either. If you are stuck in an unhappy work environment then training to become a contractor could be the exit strategy that you need to pursue.
