Scottish contractors would reject independence, says accountancy firm

Tue, 24 Jun 2014
Most of Scotland’s freelancers, contractors and self-employed professionals believe the country should remain part of the UK, a survey by accountancy firm ClearSky Contractor Accounting has found.

With the 18 September referendum getting ever closer, ClearSky Contractor polled its Scotland-based clients to assess the mood among members of the country’s skilled flexible workforce.

According to the survey, many contractors and freelancers believed their career prospects would be damaged if the nation becomes independent, with 28.6% of respondents saying they would be adversely affected in terms of assignment availability and their prospects in general, and a further 21.4% expected to see a fall in assignment rates should Scotland separate from the UK.

However, according to a recent Manpower Outlook survey, recruiter.co.uk has reported, the uncertainty about the referendum has failed to dent hiring intentions in Scotland.
