About Us

Find a Substitute is a website aimed at supporting small consultancies realise their potential and professionalise their offerings whilst helping to operate safely and compliantly within the Government regulations and particularly the IR35 requirements.

We provide contractors with a range of services including finding same-skilled, able substitutes through a matching process with relevant skill sets to offer to their clients. Once a member, our services provide contractors with access to professional material which can be offered up to new and existing clients as part of the service offering. We can help with IR35 compliant contracts, take behavioural tests to ensure you are operating as a consultancy and not simply an employee and allow your company to post questions, and answers and materials to help you and others.

Founded in 2018 we have selected partners who help in supporting consultancies to perform at their best.


Karl Dooner Owner and Director

I have worked in the world of consultancy for around 20 years and have seen contractors and consultants operate their service offering in very different ways. Many of the consultants I have worked with have little support for their business and will benefit greatly from a dedicated offering that can look to support them and help to professionalise their companies. For this reason I decided to establish this business and seek to support companies in areas where I too, have needed support.
