Working with contractors

*IR35 changes to working with contractors delayed a year due to COVID-19*

The use of contractors enables organisations to respond to demand for staffing resources without the need to increase permanent staff numbers.

This may be particularly useful to fill resources on short term contracts or for specific pieces of work that require attention on an ad hoc basis.
