Typically where a client can't afford or justify a full time person. Small to medium size companies might decide...

  • I'm currently doing two outside IR35 contracts via different agencies for 2 days a week each. Both clients know that I am working elsewhere and are quite flexible about it. I totally decide when and how I deliver the work (within reason.)...
