Digital marketing, eCommerce management, content marketing, and performance marketing divisions are all embracing the power of contractors! We have created a fantastic contract offering across our eCommerce specialisms so that our clients can reap the rewards! Our contracts division is here to help! 

What is a contractor?

You may choose to hire a contractor over a permanent staff member on the occasions that you need to fill a vacancy quickly. Contractors are a great option for when your business has immediate hiring requirements, whilst also making sure that the individual has a high level of skill and expertise in their field, to jump into the role right away.

Reasons to use a contractor

  • Lower cost – when using a contractor, there is a reduced amount of overhead costs to pay, as they tend to look after this themselves. Contractors are not entitled to payments such as sick and holiday pay and tax and national insurance contributions.
  • Temporary cover – get cover that fits around you and your business. Choosing a start date and end date at the beginning of the contract allows you to keep the role open for your permanent staff member to return.
  • Quick fix – as business owners, sometimes we have unexpected empty vacancies. With contract hires, you can get the right person in your business in just a matter of days.
  • Knowledge and skill – without the need to spend a lot of time and effort training, contractors are able to get started and make an impact right from day one. Their developed skills and expertise ensure a quick turnaround.

What we can do for you

On our database, we hold over 7,000 active eCommerce and Digital contractors that are ready to take on new projects. This provides us with a wide array of talent that you won’t find anywhere else.

As we have mentioned before, speed is key. It takes our team around 3.6 days on average to fill a vacancy, which means there is no need to worry about finding your next hire.

What are the benefits?

Hiring the right permanent talent can take a long time – approximately up to three months to secure a candidate, and there are many time-consuming things to consider, including notice periods and interviewing. Contract hiring puts you in the driver’s seat, allowing you to control the contract term, whilst we focus on getting you the right person for the job within just a few days.

Not only will you receive a speedy service, but our trained contract consultants will also look after your vacancy, making sure the recruitment process runs smoothly from start to finish.

Important information

About IR35

You may have heard about the government crackdown on IR35 – a UK tax legislation that was put in place to stop ‘disguised’ employees, as known by HMRC, from avoiding tax by providing their services through an intermediary, an example being a limited company.

However, since April 2021, it is now within the responsibility of the hiring company to determine the status of the employment for tax purposes. As the hiring managers, we are here to look after this on your behalf, and our process begins with the relevant questions being asked, which include whether or not the candidate works inside or outside of IR35. Assessments forms are then sent out to ensure we receive this information in writing.

We are confident that we can find you the perfect fit for your next eCommerce contract vacancy. To get started, please reach out to a member of the team today by filling in the form below!
