Workr Compliance expand into Scotland with David McCracken as Head Of Sales

Workr Compliance appoints David McCracken

Workr Compliance is delighted to announce their appointment of David McCracken as Head of Sales as they expand their services into Scotland.

With over 25 years of recruitment experience, David will bring his unique insight and advice to both organisations and individuals on IR35 and employment options. 

Having worked his way up to Director level in companies such as Rullion, David has been involved in infrastructure, commercial, rail and civil projects in the North East, and has extensive experience and knowledge in the Aberdeen and Inverness area. In his spare time, he also supports Football Memories – a partnership between Alzheimer Scotland and the Scottish Football Museum – and is a referee and coach of an under 17’s football team. 

His arrival as Head of Sales marks the latest business development for Workr Group as a whole, and he will be an integral part of the team as they provide award-winning customised accounting, umbrella employment and tax solutions to the UK’s flexible workforce. 

Headed up by Andrew Webster, Workr Compliance hopes this new appointment will provide them with a greater presence as they support their clients in preparation for the Off Payroll Private Sector Reform in 2021. David will be based in the Central Belt but will be visiting businesses and individuals in Scotland, advising them on the changing legislation. 

David McCracken, Head of Sales for Scotland, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be appointed as Head of Sales. I’ve been in recruitment since 1994, so I know exactly what end clients and recruiters want. This appointment means I can combine my recruitment knowledge with Workr’s tax expertise to help provide a bespoke and clear strategy. It’s important that we are providing a tax-efficient work process, and I’m extremely passionate about making sure that everything Workr does is ethical.

“With the Off Payroll Private Sector Reform just around the corner, I’m determined to show people that IR35 isn’t scary. I want to give confidence to our end clients while highlighting the opportunity it presents for them to get closer to their own clients.”

Andrew Webster, Founder and Director of Workr Compliance, said: “‘I’m genuinely delighted to have David as part of the Workr Group team. He brings with him an extensive understanding of the recruitment supply chain from an operational, commercial and client management perspective. In the short time I’ve worked with David, his focus on effectively engaging with key recruitment agencies and end clients in Scotland has seen some immediate wins. Workr Compliance, and indeed the broader Workr Group, now has a genuine presence in Scotland, focussing in the short-term on helping end clients and agencies prepare for the IR35 Private Sector changes in April 2021.”
