Last updated on Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Written by Alex Cadman

Becoming a contractor is a great career choice for many people who seek flexible working hours and the chance to have their own business. For you too, a career as a contractor could bring the freedom to choose your preferred working hours and location. It also makes it possible for you to plan your workload around personal activities, such as watching your favourite sports.

With the weather warming up (hopefully) and this summer’s top sports set to kick off in June, you may want to plan your work around some of your favourite sporting fixtures.

June’s main sporting event has to be the UEFA Euro 2016 in France. Along with that, you will be able to enjoy cricket, Formula One and Wimbledon. There’s plenty to enjoy this month! Whether you choose to watch these sports in person or on TV, make sure you have your favourites locked into your calendar so you don’t miss the action.
