Yesterday (17th March) saw an announcement that the IR35 legislation, planned to come into force on 6th April 2020, has now been postponed due to Covid-19. This decision was taken following significant pressure from contractors, campaigners and indeed from within the House of Lords, who warned that the inevitable loss of work for contractors deemed ‘inside IR35’ and effectively forced into ‘zero rights employment’ would prove catastrophic.
Barrington James is working intensively with UK based Life Science organisations where contract workers are an essential part of crucial business deliverables. With Covid-19 causing the UK government to delay bringing in new legislation, it allows us to provide experienced, trusted contractors to our clients rapidly.
We are continuing our close collaboration with organisations that require skilled specialists in the following fields:
• Clinical Operations
• Medical Affairs
• Market Access & Health Economics
• Quality Assurance & Engineering
• Regulatory Affairs
• Clinical Development
We are set up to react at speed and ensure that you are put in contact with the best Life Science contractors available. In most cases we will aim to fill contract positions within 48 hours.
