Day rate contracting

There are times when you don’t need a large project, with all the planning and procurement that it requires. Sometimes you just need more people for a short amount of time to get something built. Our flexible consultancy model allows for this, by allowing you to use our pricing experts and data scientists at competitive day rates. It gives you all the benefits of being able to direct those people to the work that needs to be done, whilst having the comfort of the oversight of a consultancy company to guarantee their work – the best of both worlds.

The Engagement

  • Have our highly skilled staff working for your company and getting right to the heart of the action by seamlessly slotting into your team.
  • No minimum engagement length, available on a full time or part time basis, and typically short lead times to us starting.
  • Get all the benefits of an experienced person working for you, but with their work guaranteed by us so no risk of mis-hiring.

The Rates

  • Consultants / Data Scientists (<3yrs experience) typically £400 - £600 per day; experts at getting the work complete to a very high standard.
  • Senior Consultant / Data Scientists (3-7yrs experience) typically £600 - £900 per day; experts at leading projects and teams with a hands on approach.
