What is a contractor?
Contractors serve as an ideal solution for short-term hiring needs, particularly when time-sensitive projects arise or during busy periods that require additional support.
In the Tech industry, where a deep understanding of the field is crucial, contractors are sought after for their ability to provide rapid input and expertise.
Why should I choose to use contractors?
Maternity cover: an effective way to alleviate the pressure on both you and your permanent staff during absences, ensuring the smooth continuity of operations. By providing temporary support, it allows your employee to take maternity leave while keeping the role open for their return to work.
Short-term fix: Obtain prompt assistance to tackle heavy workloads precisely when you require it.
Cost-effective: You have the flexibility to establish a contract term and payment arrangement that aligns with your needs right from the start, enabling better budget management.
Streamlined administration: As contractors are self-employed, they handle their own administrative tasks, relieving you of the associated responsibilities.

When engaging contractors, you may come across the term IR35, which refers to a specific tax legislation implemented by the UK government to address tax avoidance concerns related to contractors who may be deemed as full-time employees according to HMRC.
Since April 2021, the responsibility of determining IR35 status has shifted from the contractor to the end-user (employer/business). With this change, there comes increased responsibility and risk for companies when engaging contractors. However, we are here to assist you in navigating this landscape.
Working on your behalf, we diligently identify top talent while addressing all relevant considerations, including IR35. Our consultants are trained to work closely with contractors, and as part of our qualification process, we send an assessment form to every candidate, specifically requesting information on their IR35 status.
Rest assured that your next contract hire will be risk-free, having undergone thorough assessments to ensure compliance. We are available to provide guidance and recommend the best solutions for your specific needs. Simply reach out to us, and we will be happy to assist you.
