Here at Wilkinson & Associates we haven’t historically worked with many public sector clients, so it is mainly from afar that we have witnessed the impact of the IR35 legislative changes in the public sector. A combination of empirical and anecdotal evidence suggests that the impact has been significant, both in terms of the number of interim workers currently operating under a Limited company arrangement within the public sector and the cost to public sector bodies of continuing to utilise a flexible resource model to support the delivery of services and projects.

This month at W&A, we’re celebrating our 15th anniversary.
Looking back, 2003 seems a world away. The internet revolution was still relatively young. Back then, incredibly, we were still receiving the odd CV in the post! Concorde was still flying and an 18-year-old Portuguese footballer called Ronaldo made his debut for Manchester United. Whilst 2003 feels like only last month to me, I know of others (newly qualified accountants and fellow recruiters) who were still in primary school when we launched!

Last Thursday W&A hosted a table at the annual CIMA President’s Lunch, an event we have been delighted to support since 2003. CIMA is the world’s largest professional body of management accountants so it’s not surprising that the event is always popular and very well attended. It’s an ideal opportunity to meet with fellow business professionals from the local area in relaxing and informal surrounds.

Love them or loathe them they’re here to stay for the foreseeable. Technology and new means of testing have added a different slant to interviews, which is to be welcomed and the format can vary from employer to employer. Likewise some businesses embrace change and innovation more than others, however interview content and particularly interview questions don’t appear to have evolved a great deal. At Wilkinson & Associates we always prepare our candidates for interview as best we can, although as we all know – you’re never quite prepared for the weird and wonderful questions you might be asked. I’m sure we’ve all heard the classic – “If you were an animal, which one would you be?” (Disclaimer - I’ve actually never known anyone to be asked this question!)
