Consultancy – Bringing on resources during head count freeze

Consultancy – Bringing on resources during head count freeze

The Challenge

Client situation.

  • Under a head count freeze and unable to bring on permanent or contract resources
  • Able to use 3rd party consultancy partners to reduce work backlog and maintain BAU.

Great candidates for the positions

  • The client knew two individual people, skilled and experienced but could not bring them in.
  • Neither of the two had previously been independent contractors or were set up to operate in this way

3rd party consultancies

  • Did not have resources “sitting on the bench.”
  • New resources would require upskilling.
  • Resources were expensive and not of the same calibre as known operators.

Logical’s Approach

  • Logical was registered as a 3rd party consultancy under an MSA and was engaged to onboard and supply the two individuals to the client under the MSA terms and conditions.
  • Two individuals became Consultants of Logical requiring them to pass probity checking for MoJ (criminal history), Credit and Reference Checking.
  • Logical provided payroll, including withholding tax deductions and managed time sheeting, bcti (buyer-created tax invoices), PI/PL insurance and invoicing.

The results

  • Consultants introduced and onboarded by the client and commenced initial 12 month. project

  • Client cost reduced from traditional sourcing model.

  • Reduced down time and increased productivity with skilled consultants.
