Virtual teams

Virtual teams

We can provide a complete Virtual Teams capability to Partner with our clients within an IR35 compliant model, whatever the scale and demands of our client. 

  • Our scale, value and quality enable us to work with organisations that for various reasons cannot, or do not want to, bring on board large numbers of employees, or contractors
  • We can support companies that have a requirement for large teams and don’t want to rely on one major consulting firm, enabling them to use cost-effective contractors but within an IR35 compliant model
  • We are not an agency, we are a Business and IT consulting firm with over 5,000 consultants globally, that prides itself on our track record of zero Programme and project failures. We can only achieve this with top quality consultants that we can make available to you, whether you are an SME, a large Corporation,, consulting firm, or a large systems integrator
  • We have a proven track record of meeting our clients’ needs for both business and IT consulting resources whilst meeting agreed SLA’s relating to volume, speed, quality and rates. Unlike an agency, we also add an extra value layer in that every consultant we put forward to a client is interviewed by a member of our leadership team first
  • Where we take on delivery responsibility, we also add a Delivery Assurance layer that is led by our Head of Delivery assurance reporting into our CEO and the client sponsor. This allows us to maintain our focus of Successful Delivery – Guaranteed
  • Our leadership team have all held senior positions in the major firms including Accenture, Capgemini, Cognizant, KPMG, Deloitte, PA Consulting, PwC and TCS. So, we know how to deliver and we know what “good consultants look like”, and for our SI clients we know first-hand and understand their business

  • Providing good candidates fast is at the heart of our offering. Our typical SLA is to provide individual and small teams in under 5 days. Usually we beat this and have a 98% success rate for a client
  • For an Insurance Company we stood up a full delivery team for a COTS implementation in 48 hours. All named and available to start immediately
  • For a large SI we stood up a team of 29 Salesforce consultants in 36 hours, all named and available to start immediately
  • All our consultants have been pre screened before they come into our network
  • In addition every consultant we put forward is interviewed by a member of our leadership team
  • Where we take on delivery responsibility we also provide Delivery assurance on all our programmes/projects
  • Our rates are very competitive. We are typically 30% lower in cost than the major consulting firms
  • For a large SI we have a 97% success rate in placing candidates within our clients fee needs
  • 94% of companies are having to source IT capability offshore. But our rates and scale mean that we can provide onshore in most cases
  • We only provide consultants who are available to start by the clients agreed start date
  • Given our scale and flexible model we are “always” to find candidates that are available within market rates
  • We offer both onshore and offshore capability, with over 5,000 consultants
  • Our offshore capability is provided from both tier 1 and tier 2 locations in India as well as significant capability in Vietnam
  • 94% of companies are having to look offshore for their IT resources, however our model and fee rates provides
  • 94% of companies are having to source IT capability offshore. But our rates mean that we can provide onshore in most cases
IR35 compliant
  • Clients in many sectors are fearful of the implications of IR35 and have set moratoriums of no contractors – this is forcing up the rates clients pay and also creating supply challenges for the SIs. It doesn’t have to be this way – we can help
  • Our IR35 compliant model means we provide all our consultants as K2CP employees where relevant to our clients
