Having worked in Procurement recruitment for 7+ years I have heard the term Strategic Sourcing and Category Management near enough on a day – to –day basis from clients and candidates alike. As such, when a Trainee asks me “what is the difference between Strategic Sourcing and Category Management?” you would expect me to roll off the perfect answer.
IR35 is the name given to a tax legislation that aims to ensure those who work through their own company often known as a ‘personal services company’ or a limited liability partnership pay employment taxes and national insurance contributions (NICs) in a similar way to their permanent counterparts. The aim of this is to specifically challenge those who in the eyes of HMRC should be classed as ‘disguised employees’.
First a little bit of context. As you may be aware, Procurement People were lucky enough to be acquired by the Executive Network Group six months ago, moving into new offices in Edgbaston and starting a new chapter for our business. This has been a great opportunity to network with the staff of five other specialist recruitment companies.
