The research also found that, of the 360 SMEs questioned, 38% claimed they would invest in recruiting IT contractors in particular – more than double the number that said they would take on full time IT staff. Moreover, 43% of small businesses said that IT roles were best filled by contractors on a flexible basis. According to Xenios Thrasyvoulou, Chief Executive of PeoplePerHour.com, the last decade has seen a boom in remote working, facilitated by the internet, which has been led by the IT industry – as it lends itself to this type of work.
