Contract Spy selected as Finalists in the Contracting Awards 2019

We are thrilled to announce that Contract Spy has been selected as one of the Finalists in the Contracting Awards 2019 in the Best Contractor Innovation Category. The awards, which will be decided in November 2019, will be judged by a panel of industry experts which includes Julia Kermode, the Chief Executive of the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association.

Contract Spy provides an innovative service that enables its members to contract directly with clients.

In a legislative environment which continues to increase the pressure facing contractors around their IR35 status, we provide a welcome counterpoint by providing a service for IT contractors to find their own engagements free of agency services, and thus enhance their own prospects for demonstrating they are in business on their own account and legitimately operating outside of IR35.

Focussing specifically on the IT Contract sector, Contract Spy employs proprietary technology to discover, validate, aggregate and publish direct IT contract opportunities for its members. By providing a searchable database of such opportunities following product enhancements of October 2018, Contract Spy is now available 24/7 as a direct contract search tool and is also complemented by an email alert function which enables members to be alerted to their ideal direct contract opportunity whenever it arises.

Contract Spy is proud to be an innovator and remains the only direct contract aggregator in the UK market. We offer a genuine way of finding direct client assignments and improving a contractor’s IR35 status and have successfully attracted over 650 IT contractors to our services to date. We are pledged to continue to innovate in the sector and to continue to work to improve the direct contracting experience for as many as possible.

 

The Best Contractor Innovation Category is sponsored by Technojobs.

Wish us luck for the Final Awards in November!
