"The group's unusual business model involves recruiting and training IT consultants called "Mounties" then deploying them to blue-chip clients, such as HSBC and Sky, that have the option to hire the consultants as their own permanent staff. The consultancy/recruitment model faces little competition"
I would suggest that it faces no competition jange. If you make someone an employee for a 2 year fixed term contract, you cannot then become an employment business and sell the person on that you hired them out to. You are an employer or an employment business. To do this FDM would have to be an employment agency, but that would open a can of worms with this model
