Crown Commercial Service

We know the consultancy and contingent labour landscape can be confusing and complicated.

Here’s a short guide to help you quickly get to the right solution.

Consultancy

To source the right type of services and skills, understanding the difference between consultancy and contingent labour is the key.

Need objective, time-limited advice outside the business-as-usual environment, when in-house skills aren’t available?

Consultancy

You need consultancy support.

Need a temporary worker for business-as-usual or service delivery activities in your organisation?

You need a contingent labour solution.

Here’s a quick checklist to help you decide:

Consultancy

Consultancy

  • • outside of business as usual?
  • • supplier defines level of resource and assumes risk?
  • • hired to solve a problem / create a solution?
  • • define outputs and / or outcomes?
  • • payment based on outcome?

Contingent labour

  • • working as part of the normal team?
  • • your organisation will assume the risk?
  • • hired for a specific task / job?
  • • contract for a particular person?
