In other's words
I joined Parasol after finding a role as a service desk analyst and even though I didn’t seek them out myself, working with Parasol is one of the best decisions I’ve made. As a first time contractor, Parasol made the transition smooth and easy, and any fears I had about the amount of administration involved soon disappeared. Every time I’ve contacted Parasol they have listened and given me informative advice and managed to solve any queries I’ve had. If you want to be a contractor and are nervous, Parasol is a great support system.
I retired in 2010 as I wanted to spend more time with my family. However, I received numerous requests from former colleagues to assist in various projects, so rather than set up a new company, I contacted Parasol. Parasol has enabled me to have the best of both worlds. Much of my work I do from home, so I’m able to combine work and family successfully, with flexibility around working hours. Being able to log timesheets and expenses online makes administration work easy. When the odd problem does arise, Parasol are only an email or a phone call away and an acceptable solution has always been reached. For people like me who prefer to “wind down” on retirement rather than a sudden stop, I would certainly recommend using Parasol. It’s a great flexible way of minimising administration time and costs, so you can concentrate on the “core business” and family.
I have been a contract writer and content editor since early 2014, and have used Parasol from the start. I can't fault the company's service, and even when an error has previously been made by a third party, Parasol has sorted it. As well as the customer service staff being helpful and incredibly speedy at responding, the online payment portal is a joy to use. I wouldn't say many could go far wrong in choosing Parasol as their umbrella agency.
