Statement of Work

What choose a SOW?

A statement of work ensures any contractor required to operate on an "outside" IR35 basis, has a robust commercial contract to measure and track performance against.

This would be a good option for you, if:
    • You have straightforward project requirements and you want to avoid IR35 risks

    • Cost, speed and flexibility are a priority but you still want high quality resources

    • You have had poor previous experience with consultancies and want to build out your own team

What are the benefits to you?
    • You have access to the whole talent pool, not just those pre-assigned to your project

    • It is outcome based with compensations agreed as such so you maintain a greater level of cost control and accountability

Contractors Working


Robust project management and good resource selection are the keys to successful delivery and our statements of work pay particular attention to selecting the core team, ensuring plans are agreed with effective controls.

What can you expect?
  • Access to a team built from our wide pool of trusted experts. You get full transparency regarding profiles and previous experience, plus, the right of veto.

  • Effective transfer of knowledge & skills is a key requirement for most clients, so we include it as a standard element of our SOW's.

  • Competitive relative to niche consultancies, but access to deeper resource pool. Significant discount to big name consultancies (up to 50%).

  • Detailed, collaborative scoping and planning upfront, with deliverables & milestones contractually agreed.
