Questions asked by suppliers

1. Dear Sir/Madam. Can you confirm if this role is assessed as inside or outside of the IR35 regulations?
If the service is provided through a company that can offer alternative staff if the initial person drops out then it is outside IR35.
2. Is there a current incumbent and if so will they be reapplying?
This is a new role so the first time we are recruiting.
3. Will it be possible for the successful individual to take some leave during the period? Would some remote working be considered or must all work be completed on site?
Given the timescales the preference is for limited leave to be taken during this time. Given the challenges of managing this piece of work the expectation is that the individual will be primarily based in Whitehall. Exceptional home working may be agreed once the project is underway.
4. Would you consider a slightly later start date for a DV cleared professional? Mid September for example.
I really need someone to start as soon as possible because we are already behind schedule. DV is a bonus but not a requirement.
5. Would you consider a specialist who is SC cleared and available imemdiately?
