    Default Interest to get in touch with contractor project managers into building&construction

    I am new on contracting and I would like to ask some opinion about the future of this position in the market for the next years especially around London area.
    I have 8+ years into construction industry - 17+ of various technical skilled work experience doing actually my CSCS black card.

    1. How much could an average project manager within the building & construction industry earn?
    2. How long could you remain in stand-by between one contract and another?
    3. Can you suggest some good business accountant & lawyer expert within IR35 in London area with good references?
    4. There is more request of permanent project manager or contractor for the future?
    5. Which is the average contract length usually?

    Actually I am earning 50K but I am attracted on 350 daily/rate as contractor but I was thinking to give priority to the contract length and try to find out something around 7-8 months duration.. It could be a good jump?

    I will appreciate some kindly opinion on my questions

    Contractor UK - for UK IT Contractors, IT Contracting and Computer Freelancers

    You might have missed this bit

    "Contractor UK is home to the UK's IT contracting community."

    That's not to say we don't have the odd construction worker float past, but you're probably in the wrong place to get your questions answered.

    I'm in IT.

    The only building and construction project managers I know get all their work via word of mouth. In other words they have managed to build up a network of contacts. They work on commercial building projects in the M25 area. At the moment as the economy is fine they are always in work.

    I do know from having worked with an IT contractor who was originally in building & construction issues arise when the economy goes down the pan. He found he wasn't paid for work he had done and eventually ended up in IT but not as a PM.

    In regards to rates and other info I can't help you. However we don't regard £50K equal to £350 per day simply because you are ignoring holiday pay, sickness pay, the cost of various insurances you need and the cost of travelling to different sites by different modes of transport. I do appreciate this is ignoring the fact in some weeks you will have to work 6 or 7 days rather than 5.

    Why not speak to a couple of specialist construction recruitment agencies who can work through these queries with you ?
