Case Study: The English Institute of Sport

How Instinct provided flexible resourcing solutions to the English Institute of Sport

The English Institute of Sport (EIS) provides Sport Science and Medical support services to Olympic and Paralympic Athletes. To support the delivery of projects, the EIS were looking to leverage the benefits of flexible resourcing and engage Digital Learning Designers and Developers on a contract basis.

After speaking to a few agencies, EIS chose Instinct due to our positioning as a supplier to the Crown Commercial Service Framework. This meant that we are experienced in the logistics and compliance when it comes to engaging interim talent and are fully vetted and ready to go!

The challenge

EIS were relying on appointing qualified contractors to support with successful project delivery. This meant they needed talent at speed but couldn’t afford to source contract candidates that weren’t up to standard, so an element of careful consideration was required.

To increase efficiencies, they needed compliant contract professionals who were qualified, fully referenced and had experience of working in the Public Sector. Ideally, they wanted a ready-made pool of flexible resource which they can tap into on demand.

The solution

As a Crown Commercial Service supplier, the Institute of Sport could rest-assured that we were working within a fully-realised model and:

  • Understood the complexities of contract engagements in the public sector
  • Are knowledgeable of the standardised contract terms
  • Could provide a pre-vetted talent pool of compliant contingent workers all interested in working in the public sector
  • Adhered to key policy initiatives that needed to be addressed, such as off-payroll working in the public sector (IR35)

The outcome

After taking the time to understand the project and need, Instinct was able to provide a shortlist of suitable Digital Learning contractors within 2-3 days of discussing the brief. Since then, EIS have also hired a Learning Consultant, LMS Platform Specialist, LMS Admins, Graphic Designers and Video Editors on this model.
