Every six months we at Nixon Williams conduct a survey of our contractor client base to help us and you keep up to date with the changing views and opinions of the contracting market. Each survey is shaped by contractors who work in a variety of sectors and roles, creating some interesting results. 

This survey was designed to identify, compare, monitor and analyse the progression of key industry trends and attitudes within the contractor market. It’s interesting for Nixon Williams to see the changes that can occur year on year within the results.
