Being a McManus Associate means that you are the master of your own destiny. You get to determine your own income, when and where you want to work and, best of all, you operate alongside, not inside, the traditional corporate bureaucracy framework. The latter is a seemingly small but important distinction: because when clients are paying by the hour for you to sit at their offices, they are more likely to value your opinion and it’s easier to avoid the pitfalls of office politics, which can so often impact on a project’s execution (and even success).
You also get to work in different industries and gain diverse experience. This not only looks good on your CV but gives you fresh challenges on an ongoing basis, as opposed to the same old, same old experienced by working for the same company year after year.
Essentially, as a McManus Associate you have the best of both worlds: the freedom of self-employment, without the stress of having to find work for yourself.
Our Associates’ rates are calculated based on your requirements and all your benefits should be built into that rate. Prudent financial planning ensures that your employment “freedom” does not impact on your financial wellness. Here are some tips to consider:
