Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do work on site?

Our preference is remote only contracts however we do consider and fulfil hybrid contracts.

Do you cover all sectors and industries?

We cover all sectors and our range of expertise across consultants ensures that we are flexible. We currently have special interest in medical, healthcare and defence space.

Can you fulfil inside IR35 contracts?

Yes, our employees are the contractors so in this case, Periculo acts as the umbrella company and is responsable for the employees.

How fast are your consultants ready?

If we have capacity, then we can have a consultant ready almost immediately, with a maximum lead time of two weeks.

How does your partnership work?

Generally speaking, when we carry out a contract for a customer, they tend to keep us in mind for future engagements due to the high quality work that we deliver. Rather than having to establish a new relationship with a contractor, you can be safe knowing that a member of the Periculo team can be hired to support.
