I recently wrote an article for Access Talent's sister company Stoneseed, about the potential impending rollout of IR35 rules to the Private Sector and how it will impact IT Project resourcing. Since then I have had a number of requests for my predictions about what this might all mean for IT recruitment.
The main thing is ... don't panic ... and have someone in your corner who knows what they’re doing!
This is a great opportunity (glass half full) to re-examine your "perm to contractor ratio", assess what your future IT Project talent needs look like and measure them against your current resources. Experience from the Public Sector suggests that perms may become more scarce, so (whilst still not panicking), now would be a good time to start planning.
IR35 is, perhaps, already having an impact on recruitment.
