Flexible Contracts

Old and new styles of non-permanent working relationships



The traditional model of the 9-5, permanent "job for life" may or may not be in terminal decline. What is clear, however, is that it has been joined by a variety of other models of employment contract, such as:
  • fixed term contracts
  • use of casual labour
  • outsourcing
  • use of agency labour (whose contract may be with agency, rather than with the organisation worked for)
  • freelance consultancy (often using previously employed people on job-by-job contracts but now also allowed to work elsewhere)
  • portfolio working

In this section Flexibility provides news, guidance and research reviews about flexible contracts.
