IT contractors

Every working day of every year since 1997 IT consultants have been adding value on assignments via Deerfoot.

Stability
If you are contracting via an agency, you should carry out some due diligence to ensure the agency is stable with both a good trading history and ample cash reserves. Deerfoot IT has returned appropriate profits each and every year of trading (since 1997) and has cash reserves in excess of £1m. We are a stable partner for you.

Payments
We have a great back-office accounts team and following on from helping you secure a good assignment, we understand that the most important service we can provide is to pay you efficiently. We pay on both weekly or monthly frequencies (depending on end client invoicing requirements) and pay as cleared funds within 14 days of invoice / delivery.

Contracts
Although our contracts always need to reflect the reality of relationships, we hope you and your advisors will find them workable for your needs whether your concerns focus on IR35, AWR or conduct regulations. We will try to be supportive where we can on any amendment requests.

Approach
We are gentle throughout the whole contract placement life-cycle. We respect your 'position' and never use clever 'closing' techniques to get you to commit. (No false deadlines for accepting a contract, no imaginary second choice candidate waiting in the wings, no lies when it comes to what our client is willing to pay. We will tell you what our margin fee is and are happy for you to verify with the end client once on site
