    If they say there's no funding for the next four weeks to pay you, would you still go in and work for free?

    These things happen, that's one of the reasons you're paid more.
    You know I actually would have worked part time at a reduced rate for a while. With no work on the horizon, it would have been good to support the BAU team who've relied heavily on a program team of experts and will now be completely lost.

    Thanks for the answer.

    And if they agree, try to get a new contract written for the BAU support work, in case the IR35-police come calling in future.

    Absolutely!

    Was assessed by them just prior to covid and was confirmed as outside IR35 for the program role, but supporting BAU is a different kettle of fish!
    Let's see how they respond.

    Thanks

    I have pointed out the gap in BAU skillset so you're spot on - next step will be to offer reduced rate/days.

    Many thanks for the response!

    Many clients get it into their head that they have to have you 5 days a week. When you point out that you'd quite happily work part time often a little penny drops and they start to think differently.

    As I generally get given a PO for a set number of days, I often remind clients that having me around unnecessarily just burns the PO faster when they could cherry pick when they actually need me.
