A special message from our Managing Director Jason Atkinson

On the 4th of February I wrote an article on IR35 and the “Boris Boost” on the interim/contract side of our business and impact on UK plc. It led to a lot of interesting discussion on our social media channel and heralded a series of information guides and events on IR35.

RUSSAM GUIDE TO IR35

At Russam we are working closely with our interim candidates and clients to guide them through what’s involved and what their options are. If your business is affected by the new legislation, we would strongly urge, if you haven’t already, to start taking steps to determine the status of all contractors operating through a PSC within your business, particularly given timelines involved.

IR35 - Your questions answered

Russam have been navigating through IR35 since 2000 and ensuring that the contracts we agree are fully compliant from start to finish. This article answers questions you may have about IR35 and if you require further help please get in touch.

Interim Management, Brexit and IR35

Firstly, wishing you a happy Brexit day tomorrow; I’ve actually been invited to two parties to celebrate with one issuing Boris wigs at the door! Being a co-founder of the world’s leading interim management group – with about 20 offices across Europe and (currently) some really healthy trading relationships – I have some serious concerns!

Move over founder, the CEO is here

Start-ups are proliferating in major cities worldwide. The chances of success often depend on their ability to scale and sell. The skills that the founder possesses of creativity and passion are not always useful when it comes to this.

Leadership in higher places

The opportunity to meet the legend that is David Hamilton created a high level of interest. There were so many questions around what pushed him to lead 10 expeditions to Everest, what he learned by doing so and what is he like?

Nutrition and mental health

With the subject of mental health becoming ever more important in the workplace, successful businesses see the value of a healthy workforce. To achieve this they should tackle the subject in as many ways as possible.

Mental health in leadership

In times where more than one in five adults will experience mental illness at some point in their life, there is an increasing awareness of the importance that mental health plays in society and in the workplace.
