Procurement News

Resource and Capacity

Unsurprisingly right now businesses are crying out for great procurement skills but their low risk appetite coupled with IR35 confusion and the need to manage spend and investment levels is creating a move to recruit permanent or FTC roles in lieu of interim or consultant support.


It might give you the feeling of comfort in the short term, but it could take longer to implement and in the medium term it could be a more costly and higher risk option.

At Aster we are able to solve all of these problems for you and without the lead time.

Low Risk? – With a flexible resourcing solution that can ramp up and down as your business priorities demand, we take away the long term commitment of a permanent employee or FTC. Ready to start as fast as you can onboard us, we will start delivering value from day 1.

IR35 Confusion? – As a limited company offering the same services to a variety of clients, this is not something that you need to be worried about when you engage Aster.

Managing Spend?– You only pay for what you use. If you want to fix your costs, we can offer you a managed service based on a number of days per month which can then be flexed as required. If you simply want to pay-as-you-go we can work on a day rate. Whatever suits you best and gives you the best value for money is where we’ll start.

If you have a need for Procurement support, we’d love to talk to you about how we can help.
