So you want to work as an aerospace contractor?
Working in the Aerospace industry is often seen as a tempting career choice for engineering and science graduates. Cutting edge technology, exciting big ticket projects and the opportunity to use the knowledge that you have spent many hard years acquiring.
Once you have built up some experience you may want to branch out on your own and obtain the freedom of being an aerospace contractor.
Contracting offers you the opportunity to choose the projects you work on. The skill and experiences you obtain are often more attractive than being an employee where waiting for your annual appraisal is a highlight, and the only hope of promotion is based on dead mans shoes.
Contracting will give you many opportunities to have a varied career, working for different companies. Building up your skills is much quicker contracting than a conventional career, it will also make you much more employable should you ever decide contracting is not for you.
The financial rewards are not bad either.
Many Aerospace Contractors operate through their own Limited Companies, and enjoy the tax benefits and freedom of working this way.
