IT Contractors get help to go Agency-Free

IT Contractors looking to go agency-free get a boost from this new service.

Launched in 2016, Contract Spy is delivering Direct IT Contract opportunities to its registered subscriber base.

For many IT Contractors, contracting direct has often been seen as the “Holy Grail” of contracting, but has remained elusive for the majority as there has never been an easy way to find direct contract opportunities.

At last this landscape is changing for IT contractors. Contract Spy monitors over 1800 end-user websites and over 70 job boards on a daily basis to discover direct contract opportunities.  These are rigorously filtered to remove spurious Fixed Term and employment “contracts”. Agency contracts are also painstakingly identified and removed, leaving the contractor to benefit from a daily stream of genuine Day Rate opportunities with direct employers.


Contract Spy enables the following contractor benefits:

 - Build your own Client Portfolio.  The client genuinely becomes the Contractor’s client, not the agency's or Contract Spy’s, and this enables the Contractor to build an enduring client portfolio.  

IR35.  Direct contracting makes it much easier for the freelancer to secure and demonstrate a working status outside of the HMRC IR35 regulations. 

Earn a Higher Daily Rate.  With no agency taking a margin out of the pot, rates are typically higher than for equivalent roles on offer via agencies.

 - Work with Enlightened Employers.  The more enlightened organisations have already developed the in-house infrastructure and culture to handle contracts and contractors. 

 - Get immediate Direct Access.  The Contractor is in direct contact with the client right from the outset, ensuring direct feedback and avoiding agency-induced delays.

 - Negotiate Specific Terms.   Having direct access to a client makes it much easier to negotiate specific contract terms, for those seeking home-working, remote, or flexible working arrangements.  

Contract Spy is a subscriber-only service. There is no lengthy contract, just a sensible monthly subscription which is fully tax deductible. Cancel at any time.
