The role is contract based and the rate is competitive, based on experience. Tax and National Insurance are the responsibility of the candidate. We are looking for someone who can start immediately as we have just won a project that requires immediate support. 

We operate a wholly flexible way of remote working, meaning that most of our working hours happen away from fixed hours or an office space - although we do like to meet up occasionally whenever availability permits. This role would be ideal for somebody who wishes to maximise time with their family and undertake work and career development around other priorities. There are deadlines, of course, but we work in an agile way and projects are planned well to provide our team with flexibility. Some projects can be taken care of around other commitments, whilst some require some daytime input (mostly remote) and occasional client meetings, which tend to be around London and the South East.The team occasionally meets in London but we love to stay in touch over video calls.
