Direct Contracts for Shout99 members
by The Editor at 09:58 16/02/12 (Direct Contracts)
Following recent articles on alternatives to the standard agency model for contractors to find business opportunities, Shout99 and Philip Ross from Alpheus are piloting opportunities for Shout99 members to apply directly for contracts.
The first direct contract, for a senior designer/analyst in mobile telecommunication for Alpheus, has been posted today. We have introduced a new section on Shout99, Direct Contracts to list these opportunties as they arise. You can subscribe to receive email alerts when new posts are listed.

Philip, who has been a long-standing contributor to Shout99, recently wrote two articles about the difficulties he now encountered from the point of view of trying to hire contractors - having previously been on the hiree end himself!

This led to a detailed debate involving significant contributions to possible ways forward from Shout99 members. Philip and Alpheus have agreed to try using Shout99 for direct recruitment rather than its traditional agency route.

This also gives our readers a chance to market their consultancies directly to a client (a plus point also for IR35 status).

We hope this provides a useful service for Shout99 readers - now it is down to you.
